Big let down, see only if its free
11 February 2000 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Picture let us down for surely. Story line was not up to the mark. Though location they chose to shoot the film were beautiful but is not enough to make a film click. Only plus point was madhuri acting. She has proved that old is still gold. Madhuri and Anil's chemistry which fired up lots of movies previosly was conspicuous. I recommend this film for only those who has nothing to do and you are watching it for free.
