Bollywood's Raging Bull
8 December 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I have seen many Mithun's movie this one is totally different from other movies of that time. I like director Raj N Sippy, in the past he has given memorable movies like Baazi,Satte Pe Satta etc.Danny also has done a great job in this movie he has portrayed the role of Mithun's father (they are almost of same age) , but Danny did it with fine maturity and courage. The story revolves around the Boxer who has to win his last fight to get back his dignity which his Father lost once in the same arena.

The story is very emotional and certainly enjoyable. I would give it as 8 out of 10.
