One of the top Hindi action movies
10 June 2000 | by (India) – See all my reviews

If you have not seen this movie and are ready to take my words, see it. One of the good Hindi action movies. I just wish that Amrish Puri was given more footage in the movie and a stronger role of-course. Strong performance by Sunny Deol. May be not as good as his performance in Arjun or Damini, but he can not give his best in all of his movies, can he? His performance is definitely impressive and hence the movie is worth watching. Sunny Deol is so perfect for such hair-raising roles. My own blood starts boiling when I see his action movies.......smile.......
