Not bad
7 July 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Not a bad movie. It kept my attention from beginning to end, and was pretty entertaining. Not the greatest movie, or even close. Deol's entire family is murdered at the beginning of the movie by a villainous cop. Due to this trauma Deol becomes a terrorist with the singular goal of hunting down and killing the cop who wiped out his family. Good action sequences, not bad music by Anu Malik, but very strange jerky and erratic choreography. Deol and Mukerji's dance sequences are very odd. Further, I like Deol, but his acting style may not be everyones cup of tea. The looks he gives to convey his inner torment are a bit much to take at times. But his does a good job carrying the movie, and is believable in the role.
