Sanjay is the king
5 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

Sanjay Dutt plays a cop that stands up for what is right. He plays a modern day Dirty Harry in this movie and he does an excellent job. Om Puri also does an excellent job and his lines are hilarious. This movie is excellent, but the story line is average. If you like Mission Kashmir, you should see this.
