It's like a riptide...not really.
18 April 2010 | by ChrysanthepopSee all my reviews

Rajiv Rai's 'Tridev' is very much the typical multistarrer flick on the 80s. With its over the top action sequences, songs appearing out of nowhere, heroines who are there for eye-candy, repetitive coincidences etcetera. Let's start with the good side. The catchy soundtrack is quite good, my favourite song being 'Gali Gali Mein Firta Hai'. The 'heroines' are quite pretty. While there is Sonam and Madhuri Dixit, they can easily be overlooked when a sizzling Sangeeta Bijlani appears on screen (however, she is an awful dancer). Sunny Deol, Jackie Shroff and Naseeruddin Shah are cast as the action heroes and it is Shah who steals the show with his over the top performance by providing some excellent comic relief. The late Amrish Puri is a delight to watch when he plays the over the top villain. 'Tridev' is quite entertaining in parts. It's not as boring as for example, Feroz Khan's 'Janbaaz'. I fast forwarded most of the dishum dishum action sequences and maybe it's not such a bad movie to play on your DVD player while you're cooking or ironing your clothes. Campy.
