Absolutely brilliant !!!!
12 March 1999 | by (Blackburn, England) – See all my reviews

Once in a while you see a film which you really enjoy and believe me, this is a film which everybody will enjoy. The plot isn't exactly original but it more than makes up for that in the cast assembled. The film stars Meenakshi Sheshadri, Rishi Kapoor, Sunny Deol, Kulbashan Kharbanda, Paresh Rawal and Amrish Puri. The director, Rajkumar Santoshi has assembled a great cast and there are some really powerful emotive scenes in the film. There is no doubt though who the star of the film is: Amrish Puri gives an absolutely epic performance as the corrupt barrister Indrajeet Chaddha. Some of his scenes are unbelieveable. Overall, this is one of those films which you can watch in front of the family. There are a couple of dodgy scenes, but nothing too powerful. I thoroughly recommend this film to everyone.
