One Path, Two Brothers, One Thief, One Cop...........
21 October 2001 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Now, what can I say about this movie. It stars Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra as brothers who are raised by an evil man, who takes them into his care after he has killed their parents. He raises one as a police officer, and the other as a thief, but has them both doing evil deeds for his own personal gain.

The movie, though not the greatest, is quite entertaining otherwise. It has Good songs, and great sub villains (Prem Chopra, Amjad Khan), great Heroines (Parveen Babi, Zeenat Aman, and HELEN in a motherly role).

I give it an 7 out of 10.
