Seven Samurai goes Hindi
24 October 1999 | by (Örebro, Sweden) – See all my reviews

The story of China gate is basically stolen from Kurosawas Seven Samurai, which isn't very strange since it's a great story. Seen in a cinema in Bombay, it was an extraordninary experience in every way. The action scenes were explosive, to say the least, and the characters absolutely marvelous. The way the plot suddenly is interrupted by amazing dance- and song performences is indeed a different experience for western people filled with the American way of making films.

If you didn't like Schindlers list, this is the movie for you. It's sure to give any mindless Hollywood action pic an even match.
