The Classics in 200 Words: Mashaal

Mashaal is not only Javed Saab and Yash Chopra at their best but if at any point you needed reassurance as to how amazing Dilip Kumar is, well then you’ve found the right film. The film follows the life of a man who lives by the law and reforms a goon (Anil Kapoor) while he eventually finds himself becoming an outlaw. There is only one word that fully summarizes Mashaal: Epic. The film in totality is complete in so many ways. Whether it’s the execution, the performances and the dialogues, Mashaal is a treat for all Hindi film lovers. It’s Dilip saab who steals the show with his beautiful depiction of Vinod Kumar. But watching him go from white to black in characterization is phenomenal. Anil Kapoor proves that there is good reason as to why he is one of the best in the business. He is mind-blowing. Waheeda Rahman and Rati Agnihotri are fabulous in supporting roles. But it’s the script and dialogues that keep you engaged and in awe. Kudos to Javed Saab for his mastery and Chopra for doing complete justice as a filmmaker. Easily one of the best 80’s films to come out of Bollywood. Must-watch.
