Great Movie
15 March 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

In Sunil Dutt's true spirit - he had made a great movie with a really different story line for the period.

I have seen this movie long back, so what I remember:

Great playback music and soundtrack from Jayadev. Excellent, true literary songs, by one of popular poet Bal Kavi Bairagi.

Good photography with panoramic view of Thar desert of Rajasthan and blue sky above it. There are few scenes with breath taking beauty of the desert.

Great acting from all the cast. Amitabh Bachchan plays a mute man - and he proves that he is capable of speaking with his gestures more effectively than his superb voice.

Must see!!
