Outstanding
5 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Naam is a terrific treat and a great film, The music and the acting of Sanjay Dutt was out of this world.

The story at the start is slow and boring but it's worth the wait because the second part of the film is outstanding and Sanjay Dutt in this section of the film is out of this world and gives Amitabh Bachchan a run for his money, Reminds you of the similarities of the role Amitabh Bachchan plays in some of his early films, A Shame Sanjay Dutt couldn't do roles like this more often, A one off Sanjay Dutt stunner,

A must watch Film, A film you can watch over and over again.
