Cliched family entertainer
5 February 1999 | by (Dubai,UAE) – See all my reviews

This movie follows the previously tested theme - western society is "badly influencing" our traditional Indian culture.

The story picks up pace once Akshaye goes to USA,but fails to live to one's expectations in the last couple of reels.

Fantastic cinematography of New York & Perth, Australia. For once Ash Rai attempts to "act". NRI (Suman Raganathan) is a stunner!! Rajesh Khanna in his comeback role is heavily "made-up". Paresh Rawal is surprisingly "different". The music is a let-down, accept for the title track.

All in all, thanks to Rishi & RK banner for attempting a family entertainer.
