When you achieve star status, you
don't decide your films, your fans do. Irrespective of which hero it is and
what sort of an image he has. And Ajit is no exception. Ajit, who has carefully
cultivated the image of a dashing, daring and dynamic hero among his fans, pulls
off yet another film on the same lines to satiate their hunger.
In the image-building exercise, the
director weaves a wafer-thin plot that perfectly fits the bill. Raghuvaran,
an inter-State smuggler, who comes to the place of his friend, Police Commissioner
Nasser, for dinner, is handed over to the police. Away from his pregnant wife
for 20 years, he bides his time in Tihar jail swearing vengeance on Nasser. Out
at last, he encounters Ajit, a I'll-do-anything-for-money kind of guy, and ropes
him in to love the Commissioner's daughter. The expected happens, there
is heartache, and a lot of ill-feelings flow between Raghuvaran and Nasser, and,
consequently, between the young lovers. Blah, blah, blah.
Ajit is good as a goon. He seems
to have mastered the art of bashing up guys, and his physique and looks suit
him perfectly. Shalini, the cynosure of the family, looks good and performs
well. For Raghuvaran it is the same old role, while Nasser is a soft Police Commissioner
for a change. If you are a diehard fan of the Ajit-Shalini duo, this film is definitely
worth it. Even otherwise, college kids out there who want to while away their
time away from the maddening world of academia can definitely have a look.
