one of the best indian gangster movies.

this film is easily one of the greatest indian gangster films.this film along with "parinda" are great examples of the indian film noir/gangster genre. it has good performances from the entire cast with MANOJ BAJPAI'S performance being the best. another great aspect of the film is the amazing background score by SANDEEP CHOWTA. DONT MISS THIS FILM.*****[out of 5]
