Trivia

Amitabh Bachchan has fond memories of an act of goodwill shown to him by Mumtaz, who was already a huge star and Amitabh was still a struggler in the industry. Amitabh owned a Fiat at the time and often wondered what driving a Mercedes-Benz would be like. One day after pack-up, Amitabh noticed his car was missing, and was told by Mumtaz's driver that 'Madam had left in his Fiat.' The driver then handed Amitabh the keys of her Mercedes to use for the night. See more »

A action-packed film !!!
1 April 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Bachchan in a double role. In his role as a small thief, he accidentally comes to a place where a poet(Bachchan in his other role) used to live and is dead now. People feel that the thief is the poet and has come back. He gets respect from the people and a completely new life. He changes himself to a good human being.

Mumtaz and Kumud Chhugani were the heroines first and last time in a role with Amitabh Bachchcan. The film was signed by Amitabh Bachchan in the initial stages of his career.Amitabh Bachchan played dual roles for the first time.A good action-packed film !!!Its watch worth.I give 10/10.
