Customer Reviews

One of Shah Rukh's best films!
Z.B
The subtitles are not very well done either, with many misspellings and some parts not subtitled at all.
M&B
It's a wonderful love story, and there is action and violence, but it is not over done.
Mr. Ed

Koyla is one of my favourite Bollywood movies of all time. Any movie starring Shahrukh Kahn,Madhuri Dixit and Amrish Puri is bound to be highly entertaining.
I don't wish to sound cliched but Koyla has everything you'd expect from a great movie (particularly a Bollywood romance/action movie)-a superb story (believe it or not),high adventure,comedy,over-the-top action,a great romance and some wonderful song and dance numbers (all of which I liked and that's an uncommon thing for me when I'm watching a Hindi film!)The songs are also subtitled so the meaning and relevance of each can be fully understood;and some of them are just beautiful.
I could be being biased here,as Shahrukh is my favourite Bollywood actor but he does play the wounded and loveable hero better than anybody else and always with such tremendous gusto.
And then there's Madhuri,who is a damn fine actress and excudes a natural charm and beauty in any film she's in (might I add that she's one of my favourite actresses).I love the strong willed characters she's played in the past and her role as Gauri is no exception. Madhuri is also one of the few actresses who can REALLY dance and in Koyla she dances like the wind!
And what can I say about Amrish? Just that the Indian film industry has lost a true legend. He has played the archetypal villain in a manner that will probably never be surpassed and he has a physical presence on screen that is both frightening and mesmerizing.In Koyla he plays the Raj with skin-crawling relish.Those eyes!Yeesh.
The support cast are great with Johnny Lever throwing in his usual slapstick comedy which can sometimes be irritating, while Deepshka's performance was a stand-out for me.

The DVD I was sent was not from Eros but from some "Video and Sound" distributor. I don't know if it is them or what, but the whole film has the edges chopped off to the point where sometimes half of an actors face is off screen or they are entirely off screen. During one of the songs, the sound also drops off.

I don't know if a copy from Eros would be better or not, but this Video and Sound version of the movie is not good quality.

The movie itself is actually quite good though, that is if you like over-the-top filmi revenge movies. Madhuri is great in the film, that girl can dance! And I always love Shahrukh Khan. So if you are a Madhuri or Shahrukh fan you will probably like this. Though Shahrukh and some of the other actors have some seriously bad hair in the film. Mullets never looked good on anyone.

My only other gripe is that the special effects were pretty bad in one scene in particular with an axe. I'm sure they could have done that without the special effects so why mess up a good scene?

All in all a good film for the Shahrukh/Madhuri fans or fans of the 90s revenge flicks like Karan Arjun.

Shah Rukh Khan is superb in this film. Madhuri Dixit is also wonderful. While a young boy, Shah Rukh Khan's character, Shankar, loses his parents because of a rich, greedy, controlling man who dominates the village. (Shankar doesn't find this out for a long time.) This evil man then adopts Shankar, but treats him as a slave. Shankar innocently serves this wicked man with loyalty and devotion, not realizing what a wicked man his master is. One day, the wicked man sees a beautiful girl (Madhuri Dixit) and wants to marry her. Once Madhuri Dixit arrives at the evil man's house, Shankar begins to recognize that his master is not a good man. Shankar (Shah Rukh Khan) is a hero in this film. With great difficulty, and overcoming seemingly impossible setbacks, he is able to rescue the girl. He also is able to conquer the evil man and other evil men associated with him. I love this film!!!

The acting, the story, and the action are all over the top. Koyla is a great film directed by Rakesh Roshan a genius filmmaker.

Shahrukh Khan is excellent in his role and gives a dynamic performance. Madhuri Dixit is wonderful in most of all her films and gives a good performance. Deepshika an unknown actress, rather now very well known actress was damn sexy.

Rakesh has made Khudgarz, Kishan Kanhaiya, Karan Arjun, Krrish etc. Koyla is not better than any of those films mentioned but is a fabulous film.

Amrish Puri is excellent as the villain lots of venom in his role. The guy that plays Amrish's son does a good job as the disturbed mental bad guy. The movie has many nice songs and overall is an out and out entertainer.

This Movie is really an awesome movie on my list. I Considered This Movie "The Best Shah Rukh Khan Movie". I Like The Stunt Where Shah Rukh Khan Was Running With His Clothes.

One of Shah Rukh's best films!

I really LOVED the movie when I finally watched it. I enjoyed the story line but not the miss match of the voice over. Lips moving with a delayed voices and sounds. DON'T order from "Rahul & I - Indian Music House"
I'M TOTALLY BUMMED that when I went to return or replace I missed the return date. This movie will definitely be on "MY FAVORITE BOLLYWOOD MOVIE LIST" to watch! I only wish I got a better copy.

Personal Rating:
MOVIE: 5 STAR
DVD QUALITY: 1 STAR (only because 1st half was ok / no delayed voices)
