A very old piece on TEZAAB (Hindi, 1988)

This piece originally appeared here then later here. Also following on from my recent piece on MASHAAL

Even after so many years N.Chandra´s classic Tezaab remains a must-see and a riveting action movie.

The story of the movie was simple. It revolved around Munna aka Mahesh (Anil Kapoor)-a one time patriot, who due to circumstances of society becomes a low life “mawali”. Munna falls in love with Mohini (Madhuri Dixit)-a dancer who dances so her father (Anupam Kher) can fulfill his gambling and alcohol addictions. How Munna frees Mohini from the clutches of her father and comes back on the right side of the law forms the crux of the movie. What sounds like a ordinary and everyday storyline is enhanced by some breakneck story telling and fantastic performances!! Chandra´s story at that time was considered controversial and the film moved on one track keeping the audiences glued.
