Meenakshi Ke Badan Mein Chandni Par Ghatak Toh Loud Hi Loud
Campy as it is, with the same old story of one man fighting against an evil gang of seven brothers, with themes of injustice revenge, revenge and revenge thrown in, 'Ghatak' can be a fun watch up until a certain point when it just becomes repetitive. I just wonder why directors kept telling the same stories again and again back then. Thank goodness such tripe are long obsolete today.

Since Sunny Deol is the lead one can expect the hero to singlehandedly kill all the bad guys. Pretty much everything about 'Ghatak' is loud, except for most of the scenes that feature Meenakshi Sheshadri which are unfortunately very limited. The songs, though unnecessary, are pretty good. I had expected to see some awesome dance by Sheshadri but she has only one dance number where her face is loaded with excessive makeup (she still looks good though) and her costumes are abysmal.

Performance-wise Sunny Deol, Danny Denzongpa and Amrish Puri are...loud. This may not be a nice thing to say but every time Denzongpa and Puri cried I couldn't help but giggle. Anyway, Meenakshi Sheshadri is good with what she's given but the role is nothing of a challenge and I wish she had come back to do better films instead of signing off this one as her last Hindi film. Ila Arun plays the crazy woman (the crazy woman characters were also a common ingredient in Sunny Deol films).

Overall, 'Ghatak' is just another loud campy film of the 90s. Nothing new here. Nope.
