A good fun movie for hardcore cowboy'ish people
1 May 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie has a good story line and Sunny Deol performs well with Anil Kapoor. It is a bit stretched but the dust, horses, guns, and villages are worth watching. The plot is quite good and the movie has a Jaanbaaz sort of a feel. The dacoits are back with a bang and the old blues of horses and guns make me feel good. Overall, you wont say that you wasted time or it wasn't worth it. It can be a good weekend watch if you are interested in 1980's Indian cinema. You cannot compare it with any Hollywood movie but Shekhar Kapur does a good job in bringing the reality of Indian villages to life, and what does it feel like to stay there with dacoits all over the place.

Considering it is a 1989 movie, I'll give it a 7/10.
