Baazigar was Abbas-Mastan's first movie with SRK - At that time King Khan was not really the King but this movie along with Darr and Anjaam, all three of which had him in'negative' roles, are claimed to have played a pivotal role in propelling him to the top of the food chain in Bollywood.


The plot for this movie is actually'inspired' from a Hollywood movie - it was a Matt Dillon movie. Annu Mallik's music, although not exactly moving, was a super hit - Especially the title song. I think I even saw a'making-of' for the title song! It was that big. This was also the first movie were the SRK-Kajol on-screen pair appeared and went on to power many other Bollywood hits. Also on show in the movie was a rookie Shilpa Shetty - she, unlike Kajol, hasnt had a chance to work with SRK on screen since then. Abbast-Mastan regular Johnny Lever excels in his bordering-on-loud humor; Siddharth - V Shantaram's grandson - sucks.


Overall a watchable movie for a Bollywood buff - Abbas-Mastan are like the Prakash Mehra of the 90s - they take relatively new topics and make fast paced entertainers.(Their subsequent venture with SRK tanked!)
