Trivia

The song Jhumma Chumma De De was actually planned for this film but the director felt it would not go with Amitabh's role and hence the song was replaced by Ali Baba and Jhumma Chumma was used in HUM. See more »

Why he's the greatest movie star of all time
23 February 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film which has a lot of Scarface about it is superb. There are 2 major reasons for this... The 2 lead stars. A superb performance from Mithun is diminished somehow due to a devastating performance from Amitabh.

Casting is key to the success of this film. The lesser parts are also performed flawlessly. I think the fact that there is not much music in the film helps. It is an epic and is the kind of film that non Hindi speaking people should see to appreciate Bollywood.

If you've not seen it... Watch it now. This film is up there with the 'City of God' and 'Hard Boiled' world cinema masterpieces. It is the Bollywood equivalent.

Why was Amitabh voted the greatest all time movie star?? This is why!!!
