Bollywood Popcorn Flick
22 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie the other day as i had keenly anticipated the release of it. As ever in true bollywood style the story is a blatently been lifted from the hollywood blockbuster The Rock. The film is very entertaining throughout keeping u at the edge of your seatz most of the way through. There are a number of faultz in this movie...mainly the lacklustre acting from most of the cast & the highly annoying script, also dere are to many songs in Qayamat, mainly in the first half which only slowz down the pace of this action flick. There are two factorz that save dis movie from being a complete stinker...AJAY DEVGAN & THE ACTION SCENEZ. The action scenez in Qayamat are probably the best ever in bollywood, they leave u in complete awe as u can see a lot of time & money has been spent 2 make the scenez look accomplished Ajay Devgan totally stealz the show with his superb acting in a role which was tailor made 4 him, even though he hardly speakz throughout the whole of the movie his emotionz are shown through his brilliant pragmatics, this role definetly is up there wid his brilliant rolez in COMPANY, DEEWANEGEE & LEGEND OF BHAGAT SINGH...trully mezmerizing. Overall this movie is pure eye candy...if u want a entertaining nite out then go watch QAYAMAT I give it 7/10
