Another Sanjay Dutt delayed film but quite decent
8 January 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The film perhaps was started in early 90s and released in 1997 after lot of problems due to Sanju's arrest in 1993. The film like Mahaanta also was another delayed film of Sanju. But Sanju only has a cameo in the film, the main lead is played by Vivek Mushran. The film starts with him joining the military. His love story with a young Manisha Koirala(with whom he was launched in Saudagar) is quite decent, though several clichéd scenes. Even Kader Khan's comedy track tends to get irritating and seems forced. In the second half, we have Sanjay Dutt introduced, his scenes with Anupam Kher scenes which are quite likable, though at times corny, The twist and turns however predictable are watchable. Direction by Aziz Sajewal is decent Music was quite popular, Maine Kal Ek Sapna is a funny number naming all heroines of that time, other songs are tuneful too

Sanjay Dutt not having many change of hairdos in this film unlike his films releasing those days which were delayed, he does his role well though he has a short role Manisha Koirala gets less scope and is okay, Vivek Mushran is decent in his role, sadly he remained a one film wonder Anupam Kher is lovable and contributes to the fun moments Gulshan Grover, Shakti Kapoor are typical Dalip Tahil is decent rest are okay
