Excellent, Fantastic and Superb
29 September 2008 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This is great movie that is one very underrated movie in Bollywood. Mithun plays the angry young (middle age) man type character that we have seen Big B play before. Mithun gives a dynamic powerhouse performance, no wonder he was a top actor of his times. This is probably the best Mithun movie i have seen. The actress is unknown and who knows what happened to her after this movie. Ravi Chopra has done a good job directing this movie. Anupam Kher is Good as the villain of the film who rapes Mithuns mum in this film. This movie does borrow a little bit of Amitabh starrer Agneepath. Its not a complete copy, just a little glimps of it is. This is definitely a movie worth the watch, recommended to all to see.
