DUSH­MAN

Stardust (English) - - LOOK TEST -

It was not just in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai that Ka­jol was known for her tom­boy looks in a film. Her per­for­mance in Dush­man got her much ap­pre­ci­a­tion for play­ing a dou­ble-role of in­sep­a­ra­ble twin sis­ters, flit­ting well be­tween a tomboy­ish So­nia, and a shy and frag­ile, but men­tally strong Naina. This film got Ka­jol an en­try in the league of great per­form­ers, win­ning her ap­pre­ci­a­tion and ac­co­lades. The film re­volved around Naina, boil­ing with vengeance against the vil­lain­ous Ashutosh Rana, who raped and killed her sis­ter So­nia. The del­i­cate Naina de­cided to take re­venge at all costs, and alone, though she pro­cured the help of a blind out-of-ser­vice army man, played by San­jay Dutt. The di­rec­tor of the film sang praises about the ac­tress’ con­vic­tion in her por­tray­als. Ka­jol brought a strong emo­tional core to the roles of the twins, and she made both the char­ac­ters look dif­fer­ent from each other, and yet, very be­liev­able and real.
