As a film Bepanaah is no great shakes but what uplifts the film to a respectable level is a brilliant performance by Rati Agnihotri who surprisingly is the central character of the film and she dwarfs everything around her by her towering presence. She is the only actor who has a meaty role in the film. Mithun gets a very undercooked and unconvincing character and doesn't make the desired impact despite acting well. Shashi Kapoor is a misfit both as a lover and a police inspector. And Poonam Dhillon- why is she even in the film. Her role makes no sense, has no importance in the film and has barely any screen space in the film (and dies quite unnecessarily in the end as she does in many of her other films). Suresh Oberoi in his brief role is good. The film is good in the first half due to the story focusing on Rati Agnihotri, as soon as the film gets into the action mode it derails from its path. The second half is comparatively weaker than the first half which dilutes the overall impact. Also the editing is very haphazard at many places and transitions are not smooth. All in all watchable because of Rati Agnihotri.
