A great performance by Salman, 14 November 2007
Author: S20WAR from United Kingdom

The concept of the story depends on your faith, as it is to do with re-incarnation, and geared more towards the Hindu religion.

The story did not appeal to me much; however, I watched the film for performances given by the actors and to see what the hype was all about.

I think the film was stolen by Rakhee's persuasive dialogues and Salman's macho, don't give a crap, character. Over the recent years Salman has really impressed me with his different roles. SRK like his early movies overacted too much, the fighting scenes were unconvincing and the dialogues were as they say very filmy. Kajol, unlike her recent films, was very annoying. Mamta, although very short, but gave one of her better performances.

All in all it's an over-hyped movie which won't be recognised as a classic. 5/10.
