good entertainer and excellent music
18 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

Qurbani means 'sacrifice' and here it's about one man's sacrifice of his love for his friend (never mind if the girl, he loves ,

was in any case already in love with the friend!)

Anyways, the movie was a big hit of the year, primarily because of the music and a pleasantly surprize performance from Amjad Khan who plays a gum-chewing inspector constantly on the heels of both the heroes in the movie. Feroze khan carries on his Clint-Eastwood hangover in this movie as well, but does not disappoint. Vinod Khanna , highly under-rated in his times, comes up with a good performance. Zeenat is supposed to look sexy and she does that with aplomb.

Music of this movie, was a huge factor in it's success. It introduced a new singer Nazia-Hassan (a brit-pakistani) to hindi filmdom and she was an overnight star. The music director 'Kalyanji Anandji' got a new lease of life and it was also a stepping stone for 'Viju Shah' (I think he's the son of Kalyanji) to jump into the big league albeit temporarily.

Overall, a good entertainer, that was a big hit. I'd give it a 7.0/10.0.
