Not a commercial movie but an excellent movie
3 June 2005 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

This movie is said to be the second movie of Aamir Khan and one really cannot believe that a movie-old actor can do such justice to his role.Aamir Khan stars as Aamir Hussain Khan(his real name),who gets into a fight with a hoodlum and as a result his ex-girlfriend(Supriya Pathak) gets raped.Aamir accuses himself for his ex's rape and decides to kill everyone who was involved in the rape issue.Meanwhile a cop(Pankaj Kapur) is also fed up of these hoodlums and therefore after looking at aamir's anger against them decides to help him out. Aamir Khan and Pankaj Kapur do whole hearted justice to their roles and Supriya Pathak also does good in the small role she has.If you wanna watch a romantic movie with hero and heroine running around the trees,this isn't your cup of tea.However if you want to watch an excellent movie with realistic touch,watch this movie as soon as possible.
