Anil Sharma's Gadar was packed with all the elements of a blockbuster. It shattered box-office records 2 decades ago and now, the sequel is much-anticipated. Sunny Deol and Ameesha Patel return with Utkarsh Sharma as Tara, Sakeena and Jeet. The story of Gadar 2 picks up from the point it ended in the prequel.
Ahead of Gadar 2's release, let's take a look at what made the prequel a blockbuster!
Tara and Sakeena's innocent love story
Tara Singh and Sakeena's love story was pure and resonated with the audience. They were normal people with honest emotions. The softness and tenderness in their relationship made a space in people's hearts.
Songs like Udd Jaa Kaale Kaava, Main Nikla Gaddi Leke, Musafir Jaane Waale and others were chartbusters. The magic of music captivated the audience. Most of the songs were sung by Udit Narayan and still have a strong recall value.
Gadar didn't shy away from showing patriotism loudly and clearly. The film was unapologetically leaning towards jingoism and that benefit it largely.
Larger-than-life action sequences
Apart from the handpump scene, Gadar had several high-octane action stunts pulled off by none other than Sunny Deol.
A relatively new Ameesha Patel was cast opposite superstar Sunny Deol. Their innocence and fresh pairing played a key role in making the film attractive to the audience.
Gadar 2 releases on August 11.
