modern folk tale about the battle of good against evil

So why did I give 'Trimurti' 8 stars? In my view I've never seen the philosophy of Dharma better represented in an Indian film as in 'Trimurti' ('Guide (1965)' included). But this philosophical background and the fairy tale structure is probably something that repels young males who are the majority of voters here at IMDb. For me 'Trimurti (1995)' is a modern fairy tale far better than the sugar-coated fairy tale 'Paheli (2005)'. It has the power, drama, and philosophical background of an old folk tale. Fairy tale structure: 1) battle between good and evil (policewoman Satyadevi and gangster Kooka) 2) both adversaries see Satyadevi's three sons as the force of God which is symbolised in three faces (Trimurti): (Brahma as creator "Earth - Shakti", Vishnu as preserver "Water - Romi", Shiva as destroyer "Fire, here also Air - Anand"), 3) the life in virtuous poverty (the earnest simple Shakti) 4) the choice of the wrong way to wealth and esteem (the elegant leader of the pack Anand/Sikander) 5) the temptation of a young man by demonic adversaries, who seduce him to leave the thorny path of virtue, because he wants to win his love which reminds me of the pact between Faust and the devil Mephistopheles (the careless happy-go-lucky Romi), and 6) the acquittal (honour your mother, live virtuous, battle against the evil, try to draw near God in Its different representations, here Durga), that manages in the end to conquer the demons. The philosophy of Dharma in folk tale style: The deviation from the way of Dharma leads into destruction. If you are doing evil because you lust for evil you are reborn as a demon (Kooka). If you are doing evil because you want love or riches you are sliding downwards (Sikander and Romi). Only if you keep to the way of Dharma and attach yourself to God (here in the representation of Durga) - even if this is a path without any public honour - you will garner good Karma (mother Satyadevi and eldest son Shakti) so that you can eventually reach Moksha. And additionally to the very satisfying story line the film is well made: good production values, well looking settings (over the top support base for the villain Kooka, beautiful landscapes, real seeming but typified village scenes, the prison as a metaphor). The cinematography by Ashok Mehta is good, serene, and bounteous. The music by the duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal is well made and the choreographies by Saroj Khan appealing. The characters are very well personified by the actors. In my view the casting is superb for the main characters. The demonic Kooka is played brilliantly in comic-style over-the-top by Mohan Agashe. The honourable police woman Satyadevi is very well personified by Priya Tendulkar. Jackie Shroff works well in his usual restrained and benevolent acting style as oldest brother Shakti, Anil Kapoor gives one of his best performances as the doubting 28 year old second brother Anand, and the 30 year old Shah Rukh Khan portrays the happy-go-lucky 17 year old youngster Romi very convincingly with verve, for me one of his best over-the-top performances. Mukul Anand seems to me to be a very good director. All in all, a film to be savoured again and again. People who like 'Koyla', 'Zamaana Deewana', 'English Babu Desi Mem', or 'Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman' should be able to like also 'Trimurti'. People who prefer films like 'Don', 'Dhoom', 'Rang de Basanti', 'Dil Chahta Hai', 'Veer Zaara', 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gam', 'KANK', 'No Entry', or 'Dil to Pagal Hai' will probably have problems to feel attracted by this film.

Wasted Effort......

"Trimurti" along with movies like "Razia Sultan", "Vijay" and "Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja" have been regarded the most wash-out productions from the biggest film makers ever. Despite the great hype shown, they were among the biggest flops of all time. After watching "Trimurti" I got this feeling that it isn't that horrible film like what most of the people said about it. But I would call it a wasted effort in terms of direction, performances, and production values. The reason is obvious, the predictable storyline and its immature presentation. The story is on three brothers and their mother who get separated and their vengeance with the villain. Perhaps this story has been repeated umpteenth of times in Indian Movies. Making an analogy with one of the songs from the same movie "Very Good Very Bad," the very bad thing of the film is the most important thing the story itself. And the good things are good performances from Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor, Saeed Jaffrey and Priya Tendulkar. Shahrukh Khan does an overacting and is unbearable most of the times. Though Mukul Anand was the director of the film, the taste of Subash Ghai's direction appears all the way in terms of photography. Besides the fabulous locations, good sets can be seen in the choreography of few songs. Overall, some good performances and direction got lost in this failed giant which isn't better than a B grade movie in its story telling, and it runs for an inordinate length. Rating: 1 star out of 4

Crap movie

This film is among the worst movies ever made in India. Simply shamed to see crap movie with 3 top actors (Jackie Shroff,Anil Kapoor and Shahrukh Khan) with most successful producer (Ghais) and one of most talented directors late Mukul Anand (Hum and Agneepath fame) Direction - awful (He has forgotten to say cut to scenes in this film and that's why many behind the scene things can be seen) Acting - Priya Tendulkar did her part well,lead actors will lament themselves for acting in this junk,actresses were totally unnecessary. Mohan Agashe tried to be menacing as great villain Amrish Puri but failed badly Songs - OK In and all a must avoid movie at all cost.
