Trivia

This film marks the first time that major film stars from Pakistan (Zeba and Mohammed Ali) have worked in an Indian film. This was something of a ground-breaking event, since there has always been intense rivalry between the two nations. See more »

Plan 9 From Bollywood
6 November 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

(0/2)The story is going nowhere.It's like all masala movies mix into one to make a khichdi.Patriotism,romance,youth rebel,terrorism,action, and what not.

(0/2)All the actors in this movies are veterans and best in the business.Manoj Kumar,Ashok Kumar,Rajendra Kumar,Shashi Kapoor,Prem Chopra,Rekha.But the talent of all these legends is flushed down thanks to the stupid story and (mis-)direction.

(0/2)What the devil is wrong with Manoj Kumar?One of the best director Indian movie has ever seen has wasted his time in this movie.

(0/2)Music of this movie is ridiculous."Aaj 15 August hai" is gibberish of them all.

(1/2)This movie will down in the history as the best unintended comedy film .You won't be able to stop yourself from bursting out in laughter.This movie-is-so-bad-it's-good.
