I guess we’re supposed to be on the edge of our seats as Dharmendra attempts to outfox Hantomas (A Bollywood copy of Fantomas, going by the name of Mr. Han) by pretending to be on the side of evil, but it’s hard to get into the spirit of things when it’s so obvious Dharmendra is a secret Interpol guy. Eventually everyone winds up on board a cruise ship that also happens to be full of smuggler’s gold, reminding you that you’ve gone for most of the movie without even knowing what the hell Hantomas and his gang are even trying to do. I guess they were trying to smuggle gold, or possibly steal it, but their entire scheme seems to have absolutely no point at all. Nothing they do seems to have any connection to anything else they do. It’s completely baffling to the point that I started to think this was less a criminal gang and more a dada-ist performance art troupe. Every time you ask them a question, they respond with a dance or by miming a tennis match. What are you trying to tell me, Hantomas! I don’t understand!!!
