Family drama with no action sequences
20 July 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

For once, Ajay Devgan wasn't the middle classed man who got framed for murder, escaped prison and took revenge and doing loads of action sequences

This is a romantic love triangle with Ajay Devgan, Karisma Kapoor and Manisha Koirala Towards the last 45 minutes, the film starts to resemble NAYA DAUR (1957) but then goes back to the love triangle

The film makes u laugh a bit The Ajay-Karisma love story bit looks good but Manisha came and ruined it

The songs were OK but dat one where Ajay Devgan copies some Amitabh songs was good

Ajay Devgan excels and proves he can do roles in romantic dramas rather than action films Manisha Koirala is OK Karisma Kapoor is good Kader Khan is funny Shakti Kapoor is good in a different role Avinash Wadhavan is passable
