great story
6 August 2005 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Great Movie, specially in both characters of Amitabh, in a father and in a son, really great.

In reality how a father feels for a son, and a son what feels after being taunted by father, both characters are superb in the movie, and songs are also a plus point.

I appreciate the story writer and the directer for bringing this issue up on the screen. and acting of Amitabh, Kay Kenna.

The others also play nice roles, and they didn't bother the story.

A little comedy is essential in the story, so there is.

Amitabh as Heera, suits him. I would like to say all the fathers to see this movie.
