A twisted thriller with moments of surprise but feels pretty primitive
"Uljhan" is a twisted thriller with its protagonist disfigured in an accident and suffering amnesia, trying to unravel his identity and past life. The story has enough of twists and elements of surprise to hold you to your seats; and perhaps a very polished thriller of "Insomnia" caliber could have been spun out of it. But the film remains a let down for its primitive treatment. The delays in its making give it a dated feel with an unappealing cast, who had pretty much disappeared from the mainstream by the time the film released. Besides, the poor characterisation remains another debacle in its execution; at lease the roles of Shakti Kapoor and Rakesh Bedi are much boring. The same dubbing voices given to the child artists along Puru Rajkumar and Vivek Mushran in another shortcoming. Out of the odds, Puru Rajkumar shines a bit in his role.
