Excellent!
27 July 2003 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

This movie is awesome! With a movie boasting of a big, talented cast, every character is excellently developed. The idea of threatening Mumbai with biological weapons is very interesting and scary. The Sanjay-Isha-Arbaaz terrorist trio is also a completely new and unheard of concept. There is a good portion of romance but placed such that it does not blur away the action/suspense. Songs are fabulous, especially the "Qayamat" track. Although the jail seems to be inspired heavily from Alcatraz, this is a sleek, intelligent film.
