Went up against big names and succeeded!!!
26 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Bhai was released Diwali of 1997 in the same week as Dil To Pagal Hai and Ghulam-E-Mustapha. Even though it released with some big names, it ended up doing very well at the box office despite stiff competition and was declared a hit.

The film has a good plot and good performances from Sunil Shetty and supporting cast of Sonali Bendre and Pooja Bhatra.

The songs are decent and action is what would be expected from a Sunil Shetty movie. A definite must see for any Sunil Shetty fan and was a good follow up to his 1996 movie Rakshak.

Although Shetty is unable to handle a movie as a lead man anymore, this movie was at a time when he was and should be watched by all those that enjoy his work.
