They're back and they do it again!, 30 November 2001
Author: Neo-233 ( from Wellington, New Zealand

Yes! Yes! Akshay and Saif Ali are back and they do it yet again. When I first saw the trailer of this movie, I knew that it was going to be a big hit. The plot is awesome! The soundtrack is awesome! The acting, the directing, and the whole lot. This movie is quite touching as it tells the story of two small time crooks discovering the true meaning of life. Spiced up with a bit of comedy and really good action sequences by Akshay, this movie is an Indian movie-goers dream. I recommend it to anyone.
