Great
28 October 2004 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A masterpiece indeed! It is very easily the best film Amitabh has acted ever. Even though the music score is not up to the mark, one gets to watch Amitabh's sterling performance as the "angry young man" of Bollywood. The background score adds to the intensity of the film. Its well worth giving 10+. The best scene in the film would be the one where Amitabh goes to the slums to save his sister Neelam. The dialogues in the entire film are just awesome. Tinu Anand and Rohini Hattangadi have also given a memorable performance in the film. The songs are very avoidable and spoil the tempo of the movie. But the best part of the film would undoubtedly be AMITABH. He is indeed the best actor of the millennium.
