28 Years of Awwal Number

Many of Aamir Khan's films from the late 80s till now often get talked about but I feel Awwal Number very is underrated. Not to mention, sports movies were very rare in the 90s but Dev Anand who directed this film made an interesting topic based on cricket.

Dev Anand's storytelling in this film was good but he really made it entertaining and I like how he directed Aamir Khan in this movie. One thing that I felt was shame was is that Dev Anand & Aamir Khan didn't share any scene together.

Awwal Number may be based on cricket but it shouldn't be compared to Lagaan as both films are poles apart.

Here's a rare video of Aamir Khan & Dev Anand who were seen together during the shooting of this film.

Trivia: This was the only movie Aamir signed without reading the script.

Really a silly & bad film. But I was a much bigger Dev Anand fan when I first watched this. Plus cricket too. First time when I watched it was just silly fun.

It was irritating every time heroine upskirt scenes came which were a plenty which only Dev Anand can know why.

Now it's all about criticising. Back then this & Chamatkar were fun to watch as they had cricket get major scene. Awwal Number had it in the backdrop unlike Chamatkar.

Anyways now Awwal Number is really unbearable to sit through.

It was due to Respect For Dev Anand That Aamir Didnt Read The Script.
But it was a mistake And He Made many such mistakes before 1995 but after that he realised he was going in wrong direction and corrected his path!
