Whoa!!!!
2 January 2002 | by (nrw york, USA) – See all my reviews

How can this movie flop is beyond my comprehension! This is a quality movie that i have seen in a long time. Its so much more better than the stupid movies Bollywood keeps churning out. Amitabh Bachhan and Manoj Bajpai tear it up! WerD.
