Good Movie
15 February 2010 | by anmolmakkarzSee all my reviews

The movie Joshila starts off with an excellent song sung by Kishore Kumnar but loses its plot early on ......... after about 35-40 mins .... it comes back on track ... this time in style . You get to know that its the typical Dev Anand film which is not let u gonna stand up from the seat But during the middle of the movie , the whole superb story seems to be stretched .... the movie could have easily been a super hit if the songs in between the film could have been improvised , the dialogues which were like ( Tera khoon pee jaaoonga ) n the climax which ruined this master - piecs which could have easily attained 10/10 n is getting 7/10 .....

Watch it only if u r a Dev Anand fan or a Yash Chopra fan ...... or otherwise watch his movie Chhupa Rustam ( or Warrant or Bullet or Ishq Ishq Ishq )which also stars him n Hema Malini
