Umm
29 November 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is a very good movie and sets the offbeat theme that not everyone would gave the guts to go ahead with. Clearly exposes the pathetic Indian Social Set up. Akshay Khanna is great as usual and Sonali has acted well for a change too. Was great to see that old actress of 70s back (name??)

good see!
