Amitabh's most under-rated film....
24 April 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was one of the first Amitabh movies I've seen, my cousin first introduced me to it and I've thought it was one of the best ever since. The plot as well as the songs are fantastic, and the fight scene on the beach is the best I've seen in Indian cinema. I'm surprised it's not available on DVD yet, as it certainly ranks up there with Amitabh's other hits (such as Don, Naseeb and Sholay).
