    Boring Raja!

    This movie was Ok to watch (though it was Sunday afternoon). This film has many mediocre clichés and the same old kahani of parivar ka milna bichadna. This film was released in the year of 1996! Don’t know why the people were making such kind of films in those eras where Bollywood standards were much above than this. Many hit films were made before 1996 like DDLJ (1995), HAHK (1994) and so on.

    Anyways, the story of the films goes like this:

    Lalchand Dogra (Kader Khan) lives in a palatial house with his wife, Anjana (Aruna Irani), and three sons, Sunny (Saif Ali Khan), Raj (Aditya Pancholi), and Jay (Suneel Shetty). Due to circumstances beyond their control, all get separated, with Lalchand himself ending up serving time in prison for several years. Years later, Lalchand is released from jail and sets out to find his family and try to put the rest of his life together. What he does not know that Jay has been adopted by the Commissioner of Police, Paramjeet Singh (Alok Nath), and is currently looking at ways to get Lalchand back in prison; Sunny has been hired as his bodyguard; and Raj has just received a contract to kill Lalchand at any cost. It looks like the Dogra family is headed for another separation - this time.

    Same old ghissi pitti kahani. I didn’t knew why Saif and Suneel signed this kind of film after the success Saif got “Yeh Dillagi” (1994) and “Main KHiladi Tu Anari” (1994) and Suneel Shetty got in Mohra and Gopi Kishen (1994), ya I can understand for Aditya here, film mili utna he bohot hain uske liye. Performances were decent by all of them and the lead heroines here were just for Timepass. Rest all were typecast.
