Mahalaxshmi: Duty ke waqt dil lagana acchi baat nehi. Tum apni duty se chuke, main nehi.
Sr. Inspector Shekhar Verma: Main kaise mara Yeh baat kisi se batana nehi, warna logo ka vishwash uth jayega pyar mohabbat se. Don't tell anybody how did I die, or else people's faith would be lost from love.

Undeniably amazing!
26 January 2004 | by (Rochester, NY) – See all my reviews

Whoa!!!! This is one hell of a movie. When I walked into the theater, I was expecting a good movie as this movie was directed by Rajkumar Santoshi and boasted of stars Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai. I came out of the theater spellbounded as I had just witnessed a rare masterpiece of its genre. It's heartening to see movies like these come out in Bollywood, even with the over-abundance of love stories. This movie keeps you in the edge of the seat for the full length, and doesn't let up one bit. Bachchan is outstanding and proves why he is the greatest Bollywood actor ever. Devgan again mesmerizes in a negative role after Deewangee. Akshay impresses with his comic flair and his solid action sequences. Ash more than holds her own in a male-dominated movie, while Tusshar Kapoor makes his presence felt. The supporting cast are good as well. I just hope that movies like these come out with regularity in Bollywood. Incredible. A+
