Good action movie!
27 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Qahar (Hindi for 'Calamity') is a good action movie with lots of great stunts. The movie has 3 heroes, including the 2 biggest action heroes of Bollywood, Sunil Shetty and Sunny Deol (my favorite star) with one more guy. This is the typical revenge story like Ghayal, Ghatak, Ziddi, etc. The way the story is told is interesting. There are so many villains in this movie, and the mortal combat between both sides makes this action-packed film worth watching. Sunny is playing the messiah with the other guy, and Sunil is the good cop, who joins them to smash the evil. Good ALWAYS wins over evil. The movie is true to its title, and everyone does well. Recommended for action fans!
