The Great Gambler (1979) – A Complete Analysis
- This is one of those movies, which move forward among confusion between look-alikes.
- One interesting thing about the beginning of the movie is that dance is used as a method to share cryptic messages between criminal gang members. Unfortunately, it is not continued beyond the beginning of the movie.
- Amitabh Bachchan could have adopted some change in mannerism between the 2 roles, he played in this movie like the way he did for Mahaan (1983).
- With him wearing the same dresses also, it is difficult to decide, which of the 2 roles he is playing at a given moment in The Great Gambler (1979). Perhaps, this is one of the reasons the movie failed at the box-office, though the story is unique and fantastic.
- Music by R D Burman and lyrics by Anand Bakshi are remarkable and stay in memory for a long time.
