A great introduction to the world of Hindi cinema.
2 November 2000 | by (Yanji, China) – See all my reviews

About 8 or 9 years ago, on late night television, i happened to watch my first (and only, so far) Hindi movie. It was surprisingly well acted and with a good gripping story. The only downside, was the need for everyone to start singing in some high pitched, badly recorded voice just when the action was getting going (though I am told that this happens in every Hindi movie). There were good fights, an interesting love story and the tale of a man who goes up against everything in the name of his beliefs. I may well have seen the 1966 version though...
