Storyline

Vinod Verma always dreams of creating the perfect and fastest train running in India. He will find his dream shaping up when he became an employee of Indian Railways and his plan is being executed; it took him years of hard work and dedication, in-and-out at night and day. After six years the train is finally completed and is called, 'Super Express'. The inaugural of the train will be from Delhi to Bombay with a record speed of 14 hours. In view of the progress Vinod had made during the past six years he had developed many enemies - one of whom is the son of the chair of the railway board Randhir who had a bomb planted in the train risking the lives of about 500 passengers.

Edited version
19 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have attempting to get hold of this film for a very long time and when i finally got it wow. However several bits did not make sense. The previous reviews says it is 142 minutes long, and i know for a fact that at least one of the five songs was missing - 'Teri hai zameen, tera aasman'. Having done a further search, the film is actually 185 minutes long. Although the film was great, the reason it did not make sense was because i'd seen the edited version, where they had taken out all the important bits.

The songs are absolutely great, the relationship between Vinod Khanna and Praveen Babi, and Dhamendra with Hema Malini was great, especially where they got together.

Still attempting to get hold of a proper copy so if anyone knows where then please let me know.
