'Himmatwala' set to recreate magic of 1980s at box office (Hindi Movie Preview)

New Delhi March 26 : Drama, stunts, herogiri and much more masala will be in Sajid Khan-directed "Himmatwala" reminding viewers of the 1980s movie-making culture when it hits the screens Friday. Touted to be high on entertainment, the film will see lead actor Ajay Devgn performing high voltage stunts, including a fight scene with a tiger.


A solo release, the film is a modern version of the 1983 release "Himmatwala", which struck gold at the box office, thanks to Jeetendra and Sridevi's performances and K. Raghavendra Rao's entertaining screenplay and superb direction.

If last weekend offered an interesting bouquet -- "Aatma", "Sona Spa" and "Zindagi 50-50", this Friday is for those who savour the cinematic flavour of the 1980s. They can relish and cherish the era with "Himmatwala", a story of a poor and wronged mother's son who comes to the village to avenge his father.

Don't expect just action, the film has lots of drama too.

"'Himmatwala' is not an action film and that is why I have written Sajid Khan Entertainer. It has a lot of comedy, drama is also heavy. The drama of the past cinema -- mother, daughter, sister, protection, villagers etc," said Sajid.

Ajay is geared up to entertain fans thoroughly - if he has a grand entry in the film, he will also be seen dancing on hit numbers "Taki Taki" and "Naino mein sapna" from the original with his leading lady Tamannaah, who is foraying into Bollywood with the movie.

In the film, Ajay plays the son of a school teacher, trying to restore the lost glory of his father in his village.

Tammannah will play Rekha, daughter of evil guy Sher Singh, played by Mahesh Manjrekar, who falls in love with Ajay's character.

"When I wrote the scenes, I wrote it in the 1980s style -- the mother-son drama, hero fighting with tiger, hero saving the whole village, being friends with everyone, dialoguebaazi... what made Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, or Vinod Khanna or Dharmendara a star," said Sajid who is confident that it is a "paisa vasool" film.

The director makes films "from the point of view of an audience and what am I going to enjoy in the theatre", is confident that audiences will love Ajay's entry in the movie.

Interestingly, Ajay represents the colour white, with no shades of grey and he will also be seen talking in five languages in the film.
