Cheap Jackie Chan film
24 April 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Pramod Chakraborthy after giving Akshay a big break with DEEDAR comes up with a cheap remake of JACKIE CHAN film

The film is so bad the first half goes on aimlessly, a cheap kiss between ex lovers Akshay and Raveena The film just follows the routine done to death type

The film looks like a 70's movie with hardly any change Switzerland is passed off as Simla too

The romance is drab Dance shows are bad The revenge angle is like Sunny Deol, Akshay films done to death

The climax has a stunt similar to Jackie Chan film but minus the coals

Pramod Chakraborthy's direction is bad Music is okay

Akshay was wooden those days as an actor but was slowly improving Sadly this is one of his dead performances Raveena too was same Amrish Puri is as usual Gulshan Grover is okay Rakhee irritates with her done to death act
