Nigahein (1989)

Sridevi's golden avatar in Nigahein (1989). These pics are all from the stunning and graceful finale dance number - the re-jig of Main Teri Dushman.

Despite its average fare at the box-office, Sridevi shimmered and slithered through this fantasy/thriller, leaving her co-stars in dust. Anupam Kher, who was the new-age villain slipping into the shoes of Amrish Puri, said he hated his own performance in this film but Sridevi was good -as usual.

There are few stars who can rise above an average script and mediocre direction; perhaps the only two are Amitabh Bachchan and Sridevi, who through sheer effort and skill try and spin gold out of hay.

  1. No where near as good a film as Nagina. Still, shame they didn't do a third film - made it a trilogy :)
