Sridevi, Anupam Kher and Shakti Kapoor are highlights
18 July 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Sridevi probably first introduced anti-heroine roles in Bollywood as a proud and arrogant businesswoman

The film starts off nicely with Sridevi's intro But raises a question? Anil Kapoor is poor and middle-classed but still manages to arrange to go on an airplane? Also how does he lift a heavy Farida Jalal who is bigger than him?

Direction is good Music is OK especially the Main Raju Deewana song

Anil Kapoor excels in his brilliant role as a hardworking union leader Sridevi rocks all the way Raveena Tandon is OK Anupam Kher is funny Aruna Irani makes good support Farida Jalal does well Prem Chopra is sinister Paresh Rawal is passable Mohnish Behl is alright Shakti Kapoor is passable
