Storyline

When Durga's husband speaks out against the tyrannical rule of his brother, Durjan Singh, he is mercilessly killed, and Durga and her two children, Karan and Arjun, are left destitute. Durga brings up her sons without informing them of their heritage nor of the death of their father, but they soon find out when the elder Thakur decides to invite Durga back into his household. This does not auger well with Durjan Singh, and he has the elder Thakur killed. When he finds out about Durga, he goes to end her life, but her sons spring up to defend her, only to get themselves killed. Alone, destitute more than ever, and devastated, Durga loses her mind, and prays to God to bring her sons back so that they can avenge her humiliation, and the death of their father. Seventeen years later, two youth re-enter her life, they do look like her sons, and are ready to take on Durjan Singh, but will they also meet the same fate as Karan, Arjun, and their father?

Violent and flawed film, good Rakhee and Amrish Puri
18 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a long reincarnation flick whose sole selling point is the combination of the two Khans- Shahrukh and Salman. Shahrukh overacts as usual and a silent Salman has greater screen presence. The plot line is that of a typical revenge drama. However, Rakhee and Amrish Puri breathe life into stereotypical roles. Rakhee specially convinces as the pining mother out for revenge. The other villains are caricatures. The action is overdone and production values are middling. Some songs are catchy but there's a dance number with suggestive lyrics. Watchable film as long as you ignore its flaws.

Overall 5/10
