“ Knowing that Bollywood movies can be utterly boring in their first half and then completely smashing in the second, I decided to wait a bit and give it a chance.
“ Disregarding its unoriginality, the film is extremely entertaining and interesting, more towards the second half.
“ I found the story compelling and the pacing on point!
“First of all, the movie is way too long for such a thin scenario.
“ Otherwise, this is an impressive, suspenseful, and emotional film (reminiscent of Hitchcock) that is well worth watching.
“Baazigar is a good film in most respects and even 20 years ahead, it is enjoyable.
“ The first hour is so boring that I had to fight the temptation to switch it off and watch something else instead.
“ It is based on one of the most interesting and fascinating concepts of Revenge or more appropriately...
“ In the first half, the point is a bit unclear and the film does not flow well, but the film takes a major plot twist after an hour or so when we get to see a rather shocking scene, which is completely unexpected and is the film's most drastic turn.
“ Shilpa Shetty gives a stunning debut act.
“The film shocked its Indian audience with the violation of the standard Bollywood formula which was unexpected.
“ The end sequence is a disappointment and it sadly brings the film down by a notch but on the whole, 'Baazigar' is enjoyable to watch.
“ Towards the end the film gets to be even more intriguing.
“ Tense, Suspenseful, and Hitchcockian .
“ Solid, not exceptional, but well worth watching, and certainly a must for Shahrukh and Kajol fans.
“ Following this scene, it starts getting increasingly thrilling with inflaming and unusual proceedings and great suspense.
“ Songs like Baazigar o baazigar, Ae mere humsafar, aye Kali Kali aankhen were and still are very enjoyable to listen.
“ Overall, Baazigar is an extremely enjoyable flick.
“ Unfortunately, the next hour is equally boring, and only the third hour of the movie is worth the effort somehow.
“ While the first half is a bit boring, involving all the possible Bollywood masala, including action, romance and silly jokes, the second half enjoys a fantastic development of story, involving the most unconventional moves a Hindi film could have at that time.
“ The Movie is not only drab, boring, and depends on cheap humor, the acting of all the actors involved is bad to say the least!!!
“ Kajol is splendid in a performance that is both natural and intense.
