Raja Hindustani August 24, 2006

Posted by Sai in Hindi, Movies, Reviews.

According to me, this is one of the most overrated movies of Hindi cinema and also one of its crappiest. I know that movies can appeal to certain audiences and not to others. I can see this movie running in B and C centers but I still can’t believe that this one was a big success. After watching this I happened to develop a distinct hatred for the director Dharmesh Darshan who has since churned out more crap in the form of Mela, Haan Maine Bhi Pyar Kiya Hai and Bewafaa. Lets not even talk about the performances. This is the movie with which I started developing a dislike for Aamir (and a feeling that he is overrated). The comedy track makes it feel so much like a bad B-grade movie. After the long and stupid kissing sequence, you feel like running away but you don’t because you see that Karisma is running away herself after kissing Aamir for two minutes and its time to laugh your guts out. The cliched characters coupled with the unrealistic love story and emotions add upto to a disgusting experience. We have seen better versions of this movie since the sixties. So I don’t see any reason why anyone accepted this BS in the nineties. I would not recommend this movie to anyone.



1. Shujath - August 24, 2006

Well, just yesterday we were talking about 7/G and how it showed love between people of different backgrounds and here we have another shining example in the form of Raja Hindustani 🙂 When films like this go on to become superhits it really makes me wonder why our audience is sometimes so dumb.

Coming to Dharmesh Darshan, he luckily gets his ass saved always by Nadeem-Shravan and in this one he also had that kissing scene to draw in crowds. I wonder if the film would have still been a success minus these two factor.

As for Aamir Khan…I guess this was the movie after which the “perfectionist” tag was carefully cooked up by the media…..I’ve always wondered one thing……unless an actor/actress has a history of onscreen smooching he/she cannot get hold of the coveted perfectionist tag no matter how well they perform.

Well, as long as we have Dharmesh Darshan (and his like minded brother Suneel Darshan) around you can expect such crap to be dished out.
