Meanwhile, Lal meets Kiran (Manisha Koirala), an L.I.C. agent who falls in love with him & is determined to become his wife. At the castle, Dayal Singh is still hunting for the treasures of the Maharaja, whom he murdered years ago along with his brother Sultan Singh (Prem Chopra).

A travesty!
6 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This was a career low-point for Amitabh Bachchan. The much loved superstar showed monumentally bad judgment in agreeing to appear in this turkey. Reprising the age old story of the glorious hero who is the messiah of the poor, Amitabh cuts a ridiculous figure. Manisha Koirala embarrasses herself in a silly role. After about forty five minutes, it seems the directer threw in the towel, as scenes become incoherent and the editing haphazard. Barring a couple of the tunes, most of the soundtrack is boring. A 'must avoid' film which could be seriously injurious to your health!

Overall 1/10
