Storyline

Rani Maa's(Reena Roy) husband is killed by the neighboring kingdom's evil Prime Minister Man Singh (Naseeruddin Shah). The Prime Minister absolves himself from this killing and blames it on the king, the father of Rajkumari Vishaka (Madhuri Dixit). Rani Maa swears to avenge the death against the Rajkumari. Man Singh also has a twin brother, Surjan Singh (also Naseeruddin Shah) who is not evil at all albeit a little naive. Rani Maa is shocked and aghast when she finds out that her only son, Rajkumar (Anil Kapoor) is in love with Rajkumari. She sets out to oppose this marriage, while Rajkumar will leave no stone unturned to marry Rajkumari. The stage is set for mother and son to decide whether it is in their best interest to include someone in the family, who has killed a husband and a father respectively.

Robin Hood meets Flashdance in Hindustan
22 January 2001 | by (Yorkshire, England) – See all my reviews

This movie is just plain fun. OK so it doesn't have any great storyline but it does what Bollywood does best. This is first and foremost a platform to display Madhuri Dixit and it does it well, her dance sequences are fabulous, she looks stunning (none of your anorexic western beauties here)and her acting surpasses the needs of the script. The film rips off loads of Robin Hood ideas (and even some of the sequencies from Prince of Thieves) and Naseeruddin Shah plays a wonderful "Sheriff of Nottingham" character plus he also plays a comical twin brother that provides some good humour. Anil Kapoor is not at his best as the "Robin Hood" prince, he seems to flip through this movie without putting any effort into it. His action sequencies follow a rather predictable formula (well he is a hero in a Bollywood movie) but the duel with the giant cannibal whilst they are bouncing about on bungy rubber was really hilarious (although I am sure it wasn't meant to be). The cinematography in the main was fabulous, very colourful and some expensive sets (ok so there were cheap ones as well) and even some computer-generated ones. All in all a very entertaining film for lovers of this genre and Dixit fans in particular but please don't let it be your first Bollywood movie, there are many better ones out there to cut your teeth on.
