Awful Direction by Yash Chopra!
29 September 2010 | by ks9290See all my reviews

Sunil Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan....and more than that, a director of caliber of Yash Chopra...and the result turns out to be Parampara...Can't believe it? The movie is based on a tradition in a village where people fight duels by keeping one bullet in their pistol wherein the person who shoots first is the winner. The performances in the film are strictly OK...The film results in a terrible debut for Saif Ali Khan. The songs written by Late Anand Bakshi and the music by maestros Shiv-Hari is nowhere close to their music in Darr or Kabhie-Kabhie. The actresses (four of them) are just fillers in the movie. All in all, an Awful Experience!!
