A classic stink!
20 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a classic example of the terrible movies Amitabh acted in late 80's. Really childish, overacted and long movie. About the only thing notable about this movie is the title song sung by Kumar Sanu marks his entry in Hindi movie industry in a big way (he had a couple of stints before it.)

If you liked "Shahenshah" there is a chance you might like this movie. Songs are so-so, acting is mediocre. There is too much silly/bad Amitabh in this movie even for an Amitabh fan like me. I watched this movie in theater when it came out and had to force myself to stay in there only because I had paid 7 bucks to watch it.
