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 »

Terrible Potboiler
13 June 2004 | by (Kharagpur, India) – See all my reviews

I don't want to be too critical about this movie. There's nothing to be critical at all.

This movie has Manoj Kumar as a clerk, the main protagonist. And this movie is full of comedy ( and yes, I'm being caustic!) and awful scenes. The sequences are obnoxiously written and there's nothing much to do, or say. For example, the scene where Ashok Kumar gets a heart attack, Manoj Kumar plays a patriotic number, and lo and behold! he springs up and starts marching!

Action scenes, are, as if copied from superman, as people keep on flying in the air defying the gravity, and amidst all these flying people, our brave Clerk is fighting against the villains with a machine gun (read Lego Toy Gun!) in his hand.

Bottom Line: Please do watch this movie.... Its one of its kind!
