Excellent, Fantastic and Superb

9/10

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.
