Is Trishul Amitabh Bachchan's best role ever

Nice Masala agent clothes with exterior shots from Goa, Egypt, Rome, Venice, Lisbon and Holland. Amitabh Bachchan does bella figura in an impressive double role, the women (Zeenat Aman, Neetu Singh, Helen) produce Oooomph in a couple sexy dances and apart from that they are allowed to turn on Bachchan in particular.

Action on water and on land:

In addition, rows and rows of villains à la manière Bollywood with mustaches and chewing gum. Again and again the fists fly, there are frenzied car chases by road and by speedboat.

I laughed more often, even if the laughs weren't always intended by the creators. My DVD is rated A - adults only - apparently because of some brawls, maybe because of the one in the slaughterhouse with the black butcher (but Amitabh of course knocks himself out again).

Tangled story:

However, the story is even by Bollywood standards hair-raising, of all things, crooks and policemen are exactly alike, and later it turns out that - there are more to come filmi twiststhat will only surprise non-Bollywood connoisseurs. Various technical weaknesses are astonishing:

For example, dance bomb Helen collapses shot before the shot is fired; play related scenes alternately day and night. R.D. Burman's music is lively, but never reaches the pep of the best Laxmikant Pyarelal hits. “An Evening in Paris” by the same director Shakti Samanta has more glamor and style, not only because of Dev Anand, but above all thanks to Sharmila Tagore.

James Bond for Indians.
