One-line Reviews (40)

the cinematography is stunning...

The performances are mind blowing.

Nayakan was a ripoff of GF1 but better done, and more entertaining.

The meeting with Rashid & Sarkar is riveting.

Dark and intense...

If you try to pack 3 hours of intricate detail like a Godfather in 2 hours and that too with few dialogues, what you get is a highlights show from a cricket match, never making the full impact watching a full match will make.

A shabby ending which sounds quite banal.

On the contrary, they are pretentious attempts masquerading as good cinema.

Due to lacking entertainment values and its slow pace, the film unfortunately didn't get much absorbed by the viewers.

Otherwise the background music is engaging.

The story line was predictable to say the least.

You made the man look like a comatose patient, who's reminded from time to time to look at the cue cards and mouth those predictable one-liners.

and RGV made sure that our POWERMAN seems very susceptible, this is what makes this film even more gripping thriller.

Absolutely Stunning .

It was a thrilling experience for me.

Still, despite this, it's an exciting and well made film that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

It's best when it DOESN'T follow the lead of its predecessor, but takes unexpected turns, especially in the ending sequences.

The opening credits stoked the hope that your stunning sepia-tinted promos on the telly had kindled.

What finally audience is subjected to is a highly predictable, very commonplace drama with very little surprise elements.

By far this is definitely the worst movie of Ram Gopal Verma in depicting an underworld story.

He has an intense stare that can capture your mind.

The thing that Varmaji failed to realise is that taking five minutes to articulate a single line of dialogue and making your characters walk at a snail's pace cannot make up for the absence of an actual screenplay.

Cinematography is just mind blowing!!!

The dull lighting and the echoing voice of Big B is sure to give you goose bumps.

amazing action sequences..exciting debut Satya...

There are certain dialogues which are riveting and RGV has chosen the characters to speak them to have the effect on the audience like the Swamiji saying, 'You cannot kill the man, you should kill the philosophy' is easily the best dialogue in the film that epitomizes the script.

This is an amazing movie with mind blowing performances.

, but definitely worth watching...

The ending of this movie was unpredictable and good.

The movie is fast paced.

The movie is very predictable from the start and one really needs to put in great effort to remember various characters,some of whom don't in figure in rest of the movie ...

absorbing Company...

After seeing Ramu experiment with different styles I believe ramu gets it right by using the correct cinematography accompanied by the colourful and sometimes intense background music's I think it's a marriage made in haven Big B taking on Marlon Brando role here I believe the public the actor and the fraternity wanted to see this happen.

This is absolute cliché.

He makes you go spellbound with those piercing and intense eyes and stands tall and strong as the best actor ever born in Indian Cinema.

What follows next is an engaging and captivating tale though remaining within the basic framework of "The Godfather".

Every scene was accompanied with this pretentious background music that was telling you the mood, quite pathetically, I might add.

The background score especially 'Govinda' one is truly intense and helps make you spellbound to this film.

The villains in the movie are like any other Hindi movie Villains and are shown larger than life which possibly was a setback unexpected from R.

But the sequences were so intense that the movie absorbs the whole mind, leaving no thoughts of the outside world.
