The only negative thing about Kanoon is its climax and it doesn't mean it is short of a suspense twist. It is just too feeble for a strong plot.

Ashok Kumar is calm & fine with his portrayal, and I am impressed by Rajendra Kumar. His seriousness throughout the movie keeps you hooked & pulls you inside. Supporting cast is little overactive, but that's fine.

Story of how the judicial system can convict any person if advocates throw witnesses & evidences to it. It talks about how a court doesn't go and search for clues or proofs, it only decides upon the things thrown to it. Wonderful plot describes relationships inside a family, murder & honesty between advocates.

Although released in 1960, its technical attributes are way thinner than its counterparts, especially the score & setup. Editing is very good. It gives its audience what they deserve & comes straight to the point, telling a gripping tale. It entertains incredibly & hence a 6.7/10 for the topic & performances.

BOTTOM LINE: One of the few films on courtroom drama that is gripping & psychological. Recommended!

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

Profanity/Nudity/Vulgarity: No | Violence/Gore: Mediocre | Smoking: Strong | Alcohol/Drugs: No | Sex: No
