Hum
30 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a childhood favourite of mine. This was the second in the trilogy of the late Mukul Anand- Amitabh Bachan collaborations, the first being Agneepath and the third being Khuda Gawah. In my opinion this was the best in the trilogy. Amitabh was extraordinary whilst Govinda and Rajnikanth provided good support as his younger brothers.

The songs were chart-busters and I still listen to them. The lyrics were penned by Anand Bakshi and the music directors were Laxmikant- Pyarelal My favourites were either Jhomma Chumma or Ek Doosre se. Anupum Kher was OK but Danny was great as Bhaktawar. The action was superb, especially in the end scene where Anupum Kher and Amitabh are fighting in the helicopter.
