Super Hit !!!!
20 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film i thought was a total love story when i saw a DVD cover of it so when i asked for the DVD it had a 18 cert and Sanjay Dutt with blood.I saw the film on a Saturday night between 12am-1am and the film was brilliant all it is the credits are coming and the Sanjay Dutt is walking on the streets with blood and he stars counting the minutes hes going to die.The film did well at the box office and also became a super hit but the film today in not recognised for the people because some people always talk about Sanjay Dutts all time hits?As the performers go of course Sanjay Dutt does a killer once again,the rest of the cast like Raj Babbar,Anupam Kher,Amrita Singh,Alok Nath,Avtar Gill and last but not least Paresh Rawal was a scene stealer.
