Good Love story cum Action Film
4 September 2008 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Betaab hit the box office and overnight Sunny Deol became a sought after actor. Although the story by Javed Akhtar is romantically adventurous and studded with action by Rahul but the main credit must go to R.D. Burman for composing great lyrics and unforgettable songs. All of its songs are super hits and beautifully pictured especially, "Jab Hum Jawan Honge" that is filmed in a verdant valley farm house and scenic locations. The humorous content injected by the director as light comedy by Sunny and Amrita boosts the interest of the audience.

It is definitely a memorable love story which introduced and established Dharmendra's elder son as a Bollywood icon.
