excellent reamke
18 December 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

this is the film which i saw when i was just 10 year on VHS i mesmerize from the performance of the cast everyone perform exceptionally well.while it is MUNNAor BABBAN or LOTIYA PATHAN OR MADHURI.

music scored by LP that was rocking i remember even today that EK DO TEEN was all over i also like the another song of this movie was NITIN MUKESH "SO GAYA HAI RASTA" which is good u can easily listen this song on any FM channel at night after 12 o clock.

the director N CHANDRA is its best in this movie he was in peak of his imagination and direction which he started from ANKUSH and PRATIGHAAT i really wonder why he is unable to create same magic till now. even he started making style and XCUSE ME type of films.

the biggest fact of this film which i like most is that, it is the remake of English film the streets of fire it take best adaption from the film u may surprised to know that streets of fire was so so in Hollywood but tejaab rock all the India and it gives edges to ANIL KAPOOR to other film star of country support to MADHURI and lot of name and fame to N CHANDRA not to forget LOTIYA PATHAN.
