Quotes

DCP Anant Kumar Shrivastav: We are scheduled to leave for Chandangarh at 11am, and if everything goes according to plan, we'll be back here with Ansari on the day after. But we have to do this carefully, and within the framework of the law... follow the rules. This enemy we are up against has no name, nor face. We don't know how many of the enemy there are, except that there are many in number. We don't know what kind of weapons they have, except that they are better than ours.

amitabh rules!
18 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is a fairly enjoyable thriller , which tries to be slightly different and off the beaten path. The glue that holds this movie together is Amit. DEfinitly one of his better work in the past decade. The sequence where he is admonishing the politician towards the end of the movie , reminding him of his duty to the ordinary man was really effective and goosebump inducing:) the man can still bring it! Aish was Ok. Her role did not have much substance in my opinion and she did'nt blow me away with her acting. She still looks good though! Tusshar is stiff. Akshay is time pass. The Aish Aksh songs were good. I liked the fact that the muslim character was handled extermely sympathetically. How refreshing in this age of jingoistic patriotism!. At the end of the day, I wld urge you to watch this movie for Amitabh Bachhan Overall grade 8/10.
