Triangular love stories were quite popular in the 80's and 90's Hindi cinema. The formula usually ended either with one of the characters dying in the end or by introducing a new love interest in the end for the loser. Ravi Chopra's 'Dahleez' is quite a mess. Given the concept, even though, familiar, this could have been an engaging film but the writing is awful. The first half is extremely rushed and feels patchy while the director doesn't mind throwing in some unnecessary dishum dishum (campy Bollywood action sequences). Things get marginally interesting when a married Naini decides to go out with Chandrashekhar. Now if the film only focused on the love triangle and developed this properly, 'Dahleez' could have been way better but alas. Moreover it's got too many songs. Some are beautiful, others are okay and a few are truly abysmal. Jackie Shroff, Raj Babbar and Meenakshi Sheshadri are very good. They are given some dreadful dialogues at times but the actors manage to rise above (most of the time anyway). Sheshadri is particularly notable. I was appalled to see Smita Patil wasted in such an insignificant role.
