One Of The Best Films Of Suniel Shetty
7 August 2016 | by scofield7See all my reviews

Pehchaan Directed By Deepak Shivdasani Who Earlier Directed Baaghi(1990) Based On Somewhat Similar Theme Of Forced Prostitution,This Time Moves Ahead To Next Level As A Brother(Suniel Shetty) Tries To Save His Sister From Clutches Of Flesh Trade.

On Acting Level Pehchaan Belongs To Suniel Shetty And Madhoo As They Portray The Damaged And Wounded Relation Of Brother-Sister Who Are Trying To Fight Against The Odds.

Suniel Shetty Shines In Action Sequences And In Proudy And Insensitive And Arrogant Businessman Turning Into A Protecting Brother.Madhoo Finely Captures The Soul Of A Wounded Prostitute.Saif And Shilpa Are Very Good In Their Supportive Roles.

Anand-Milind's 'Ye To Badnam Galiyan' Is One The BEST Musical Composition Of Them.Overall Pehchaan Is A Good Film Which Portrays The Fight Of A Brother To save His Sister.

7/10
