Great Film Making!
22 December 2005 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

I saw this film first when I was a kid, Recently I saw it again, I had thought that it wont live up to the expectations from when i last saw it. i was wrong, the film is still top notch, the music is great, the editing is spot on, the songs hummable, and the action funny yet believable. Everything in this film is done properly, unlike some of the other films of that era, you feel the pain of appu, it was just great, not to mention it reminded me of my childhood! Most such films use little or no intelligence, surprisingly this film is very clever, the theme of revenge is central to the plot, but the comedy elements are present and fun to laugh at without becoming toilet humor. See this movie if you liked it initially, because it is still as good as it was back then!
