Nana Patekar's WORST Films

     Next

Next

His celebrated intensity and candor has made Nana Patekar a powerhouse to watch on screen.

Be in mainstream films like Parinda, Krantiveer or Ab Tak Chhapan or offbeat fare like Ankush and Salaam Bombay or even his lone attempt at direction in Prahaar, Nana's body of work aims to inspire.

Although known to be very picky about his work, the actor has got it wrong on several occasions.

Like last Friday's The Attacks of 26/11, based on the terror attacks on Mumbai in 2008, directed by Ram Gopal Varma.

On that note, here's looking at some of his worst films.

The Attacks of 26/11

In Varma's latest spectacle, Patekar plays Joint Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria conducting an inquiry to get to the root of the terror attacks.

Earlier, Kay Kay Menon played him in Black Friday.

In this offensively bad reproduction of a real-life tragedy, Patekar's loud and jarring performance only adds to The Attacks of 26/11's woes.

Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal

In this rehash of Malayalam film Marykkundoru Kunjaadu, Priyadarshan casts Nana Patekar as Shreyas Talpade's strong and starving brother.

Their interactions are meant to generate a few laughs but audiences failed to find any kamaal or dhamaal in this absurd comedy.

Ek: The Power of One

One can hardly be blamed for having no memory of this excessively stereotypical Bobby Deol-Jackie Shroff-Nana starrer against the backdrop of crime. 

Patekar disappoints with a performance that has little except double meaning innuendoes to offer.

Hattrick

Cricket is a running theme of Hattrick but half as engaging as a live match on television. 

While the makers of Hattrick rope in bunch of reliable names like Patekar, Danny Denzongpa, Paresh Rawal to make things interesting, its half-baked ideas result in instant dismissal.

Yatra

With a cast like Patekar, Rekha and Deepti Naval at helm, one expected something concrete out of Gautam Ghose's Yatra about a disillusioned author and spineless idealist. 

The drama's confused contents and abstract concepts fail to make any point, with respective to narrative or style.

But what's truly confounding is just how badly its talented cast performs.

Kohram

Mehul Kumar has never been about subtlety.

While Krantiveer, with its taut storyline, worked despite its exaggerated tone, the director isn't quite able to pull it off with Kohram.
 

High on jingoism and gimmicks, the lackluster camaraderie between Patekar and Amitabh Bachchan and Tabu makes Kohram a tedious, exasperating experience.

Shakti: The Power

Boney Kapoor's Shakti is the inevitable woman-oriented action drama every actress has to have on her resume. 

And in the tradition of Sridevi's Gumrah and Madhuri Dixit's Anjaam, Karisma Kapoor's embraces a blood and gore filled battle to save her skin from her cruel father-in-law (Patekar plays a regressive, oppressive type) in this thoroughly grotesque melodrama.

In this little remembered Nana Patekar starrer, the man plays a loving husband to Anupama Verma, doting brother to Nakul and trusting friend of Puru Raaj Kumar. 

But when his wife and best friend get too close for comfort, he comes up with a devious scheme that is so blah, it makes Abbas-Mustan's Humraaz look top-notch.
