Storyline

Vinod Verma is an employee of the Indian Railways, who always had a dream of making the perfect and fastest train in India. After years of dedication the Railway Board approves his prototype of the Super Express. But these years had had their toll on his personal life, as his wife, Sheetal and son, are more like strangers to him. He hopes to make it up to them after the train makes it inaugural run from Delhi to Bombay in a record 14 hours. Showing him support are his friends, Ashok and Rakesh. But an embittered fellow-employee named Randhir, the son of the Chair of the Railway Board, has other plans for Vinod and the Super Express - plans that may derail Vinod's delicate personal balance, and make the Super Express' inaugural journey also the final one.

Good movie but very lengthy.
17 February 2012 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

The Burning Train is a good watch but is very lengthy.

The movie has many characters which makes it boring plus even there are some songs which could have been avoided which could have made the movie short.

But otherwise the movie is an stylish action packed mass entertainer.

Story:- Vinod Verma is an employee of the Indian Railways, who always had a dream of making the perfect and fastest train in India. After years of dedication the Railway Board approves his prototype of the Super Express. But these years had had their toll on his personal life, as his wife, Sheetal and son, are more like strangers to him. He hopes to make it up to them after the train makes it inaugural run from Delhi to Bombay in a record 14 hours. Showing him support are his friends, Ashok and Rakesh. But an embittered fellow-employee named Randhir, the son of the Chair of the Railway Board, has other plans for Vinod and the Super Express - plans that may derail Vinod's delicate personal balance, and make the Super Express' inaugural journey also the final one.

The story is fine The direction is good.

The music is okay.

The action scenes are excellent.

Performances:- Dharmendra steals the show with his stellar performance.Vinod Khanna is good.Jeetendra is perfect.Hema Malini,Parveen Babi and Neetu Singh are okay in their respective roles.Danny Dengzonpa is superb.

All in all,The Burning Train is a good weekend watch!
