Amitabh proved him self 2 in 1
20 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Amitabh proved himself 2 in 1, what I literally mean by 2 in 1 is that, in this movie Amitabh role was comedy as well as the dominant action man, he without hesitating performed his roles very well, this must of been very challenging to do 2 roles in the same movie, there was a contrast, I would simply give this movie 10 out o 10, there were loads of good points about the film, the storyline was brilliant, the actors played there role very well, All I would say this movie will be one of my best movies of all times, I can assure you if you buy this DVD, or record it from the television like I did on last Saturday on max television you will at the end of this film, reach for the rewind button. This movie is one of those which will stick into your heads forever, and you cannot get over it. This movie delivers what its audience needs. Genre, Action, Comedy, Musical, Drama, and Family. all these mixture made this movie into a super hit movie in the year 1981. This was a big blockbuster super hit movie. I would say watch it, you'll love it.
