5.0 out of 5 stars Scared to Fall in Love 27 July 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Wow!!!!! This for me was a whole new experience in Bollywood entertainment. It isnt the normal love triangle story but a story of love blossoming from the fear of the past. It is a trully "edge of your seat" type movie incorporating music, fear, love and danger. The movie keeps you happy from start to finish and it is a movie you will never forget. With two great actors, a grat soundtack and good directing, Bichoo will always be number one in my collection. Its BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!

This is the first Bollywood movie I've bought on DVD, and it certainly won't be the last. While some aspects, such as the sudden intrusion of cheesy Hindi pop with equally ridiculous dance routines and some seriously unbelieveable plot devices, fit with some people's stereotyped view of Indian movies, there is also a lot of good action and acting. Bobby Deol is great as a kind of silent killer/cheerful pop idol (mad fantasy sequences!), and is often quite chilling. Rani Mukherjee is the real find here though. A genuinely gorgeous young woman with plenty of spirit. The plot is utterly ripped off from Luc Besson's Leon, but I think this is just the way that Bollywood works... formula plots with crazy music. I loved it. It's pretty violent, but there's no nudity or even kissing! And those wacky dance routines!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Bobby Deol's best 3 May 2011
By Z.B - Published on Amazon.com
In my view this is one of Bobby Deol's best. This is different from regular Indian movies, which are usually long, dull, and predictable. Bichhoo is different, and even though it is a copy of Leon the Professional, it is great for an Indian movie. The story doesn't go soft and dry, the songs are not much of a disturbance to the pace, and Bobby Deol is believable as a tough-as-nails, battle-hardened, cold-blooded hero for hire! I didn't like his anti-cursing and anti-smoking attitude though, that was not realistic, not to mention his drinking milk like a good little boy, while he kills people for a living, was a bit out of place, oh well, this is an Indian movie afterall. The opening song with Hansraj Hans was a nice touch.
5.0 out of 5 stars Jeeva The Professional 19 Mar 2011
By C. Chow - Published on Amazon.com
If you didn't know this is a Bollywood version of Luc Besson's groundbreaking action film `The Professional' AKA `Leon The Professional.'

Second, I don't speak a word of Hindu and I saw this film WITHOUT SUBTITLES. But still I was able to figure out what was going on. This proves that the powerful story transcends language.

Plot wise many scenes are literally identical to the original. Even the angles of the cameras and the mannerisms of the actors. They even keep some of the same lines, in English!

If you think Leon looked weird walking around New York carrying a potted plant and two cartons of milk, wait until you see Jeeva walking around India like that.

What's different? We for one thing, Leon/Jeeva is given a back story as to how he became a killer. Jeeva worked at a (presumably bootleg) CD store until his girlfriend's overly protective father had Jeeva's mother evicted and disgraced in her community causing her to be stoned and buried to death by her neighbors. (What was that about good fences making good neighbors?) Horrified by her father's actions Jeeva's girlfriend drives off a cliff. (or maybe she was just a typical Indian driver.) Hence a vengeful Jeeva murders him and turns to a life of crime.

The other key difference is that Gary Oldman's character is a politician of some type running with the campaign slogan in English, "No do drugs!" Seriously I'm not joking.

Of course `Bichhoo' must follow the Bollywood rules of being 3:00 hours long! And being a musical. That's right. About every 20 minutes the characters all break out in very very elaborate song and dance scenes where hundreds of people are dancing in the streets. These dance scenes aren't cheesy. Seriously, Jeeva really can sing and dance. Take that Jean Reno.

What these songs are about is pretty obvious. They're mostly about Matilda/Kiran's crush on Leon/Jeeva.

Another song features Jeeva's girlfriend singing, "I love you." to him in English.

The opening song features a billboard which reads in English, "No Drugs, No War." Fair enough but I never really thought of `The Professional' as an anti drug pacifist film. Why doesn't Leon save the ozone while he's at it?

Hands down this is must see!!! Seriously, I enjoyed every second of it!
