Anil and Sunny together
18 March 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I never knew Anil Kapoor and Sunny Deol worked together, they worked in 3 forgettable films like RAM AVTAR, INTEQAAM and JOSHILAY RAM AVTAR was a flop, the film has a decent story treated in typical melodramatic fashion There are some interesting scenes but nothing out of the mundane. The film was a huge flop when released even Sridevi's presence couldn't save it

Sunil Hingorani direction is okay Music is decent

Sunny Deol was criticised as an actor in 80s except ARJUN and few films, here he is okay but could be better, Anil Kapoor is as usual fab, Sridevi is good, Shakti Kapoor is okay rest don't impress much.
