7 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Rakesh Roshan often known for hardhitting films in 80's as a director tried a lighthearted yet serious film

The film came in the late 80's when Jackie and Anil were a good team and gave several successful films

The film is a commercial film and has all things required

Story is simple and well handled

The film shows how the blackmarketters succeed over honest people

The film is a typical film of 80's and nothing that different but well handled

Direction by RR is good Music is okay, YEH PAISA BOLTA HAI stands out

Amongst actors Jackie and Anil come together after ANDAR BAHAR, YUDH, RAM LAKHAN, PARINDA and do a good job in their roles Kader Khan is excellent in his role Johny is funny Farah is as usual rest are typical
