Poor combination of bits from different english movies
13 February 2001 | by (Louisville, KY, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is a standard hindi masala. Most of the scenes are poor remakes of popular sequences from movies like Timecop, Universal soldier etc. Except for Karishma Kapoor and good(not excellent) music there's nothing much in this movie. Raghuvaran, an excellent actor in south is wasted in this movie. Sunil Shetty did fairly a good job I'd give him an 'A' for his dancing.
