Ahmed M An amazing movie for when it was made, the story and the performance of Rishi Kapoor might seem silly now, but if you watch it as an old, classic movie you are bound to like if not find it entertaining. A lot of people might not like this movie, but people who enjoy watching classic Bollywood movies, will enjoy this one as well. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/28/16 Full Review Audience Member One of the classics in Indian Cinema. Amazing cast, excellent direction and great music. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member KARZ (DEBT - 1980) - Murder, Intrigue, Revenge, Reincarnation. Stars Rishi Kapoor. Very interesting and pretty good. Rishi Kapoor is definitely a lover not a fighter (fight sequences are almost laughable). This movie was the inspiration for Farah Khan's 2007 film "OM SHANTI OM" starring Shah Rukh Khan. Especially love to see the full version of the song Om Shanti Om (which is used as the opening song in SRK'S OSO). Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member A Unique thing about Subash Ghai`s Movies are that his Movies run with the time for couple of hours you will live in a different time when you watch his Movies, a time when the Movie was made. Karz is one more timeless piece of work from Ghai`s Factory. A very nice musical- thriller. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie was so bad. It was a total reincarnation movie. This movie was an older version of shah rukh khan's om shanti om. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member The best Subhash Bhai Films Ever. Everytime I watch this movie I still get engaged into it. From the StarCast, Rishi Kapoor and Pran to the Story (which was way ahead of its time) to The music of the great music duo Laxmikant Pyarelal. I would recommend this movie for everyone to watch this movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Read all reviews
