what is this movie.
29 September 2008 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Directed by Ramesh Sippy, Top Director of films like Sholay, Shaan and Shakti. The movie Stars one of the best actors in Bollywood of the decade Shahrukh Khan. It stars Raveena Tandon, who is quite pretty and their was not much competition. Apart from Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla, Raveena was next as the best. It brings back the successfully pairing of Jeetendra and Shatru from classic film Khudgarz again. It had a clever trailer that made the film seem like a sure Super hit once it will release. After all this plusses the outcome was minus, a big zero. The movie has such a bad script, its so unrealistic that it bores you to death. The performance of all actors were not so great, they all seemed bored. This is a terrible awful movie that does NOT entertain at all. If you want to see good films, you can check my other reviews.
