Storyline

Naseeb, a story of destiny and fate, begins with a lottery ticket. A drunk who cannot pay his tab trades his 'winning' ticket to the waiter, Namdev (Pran), instead. Namdev decides to share this ticket with his three friends Damu (Amjad Khan), Raghu (Kader Khan) and Jaggi (Jagdish Raj). But when it turns out to actually be a winner, Damu and Ragu turn on the other two, murdering Jaggi and framing Namdev. Namdev goes on the run but Raghu and Damu intervene and throw him over a bridge into a river and Namdev is presumed dead. However he is rescued by a don (Amrish Puri) but no one is aware he is alive. Fast forward to ten years later - Damu and Raghu have used their stolen lottery money to build a fabulous hotel and make millions becoming very successful businessmen. Damu has used a share of his money to send his only son, Vicky (Shatrughan Sinha) to school in England. They have even employed Namdev's oldest son Johnny (Amitabh Bachchan), Vicky's best friend, as a waiter in the hotel. By... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

i loved the music
23 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the best film of Amitabh. He is super in it and as far as cast many stars appear in song John Johny janardan. Other cast of the film are hema, Shru,Rishi, Tina, and reena roy. Amit plays the character of a poor waiter in a hotel and then he also wrestles too. Hema is playing character of a model and on a tour to London for shooting when she meets Mr. Sinha he falls for her but hema is beloved of Amit so things goes right wrong because Amit, and Shatru r two friends on other hand the story has Reena Roy liking but its one side love. Rishi also has done good and tina has done good too. Music is lovely and its a masala film that keeps u wake and the music is amazing. To find what movie is u have to check out on DVD.
