Himmatwala – an endurance test 2 out of 5


Himmatwala that hit the theatres on Thursday is a test of endurance even for the hardiest of Ajay Devgan Fans. The movie is a frame-by-frame copy of the Jeetendra and Sridevi hit Himmatwala, but the destinies of both films may not be the same. The 1983 Hindi film which itself was a remake of the 1981 Telugu film Ooriki Monagadu. At most instances even the character punchlines are derived from 1983 film on pretext of staying true to the original. Also the era isn’t upgraded to modern times with the setting still being in 1983. So the remake is practically a re-dramatization of the original without much innovation.
