It's a nice entertaining movie.
14 September 2004 | by (Flordia) – See all my reviews

Amitabh appearing in his old super-hit namesake as Major Ranvir Kaul who is held as a undeclared prisoner of War between India and Pakistan for over 30 odd years with many others. The start of the movie is gripping showing one of the nth attempts made to escape and the will to survive persecution.

One attempts by a their mate is partly successful and in conveying the message to Indians. But it is in vain as the Government & Army cannot do anything. The son of Kaul, Akshaye Khanna, takes it upon himself to go to Pakistan and get his father back. Here's the silly part of the ease in how he enters Pakistan and goes about doing the necessary.

As a reprimand for the escape attempt the prisoners are moved to a 'high security' prison where they mingle with other similar captives, led by Raj Zutshi. Also there is Sunjay Dutt a goon caught on the border. He somehow manages to escape and in short teams up with Khanna for the escape where he lands up back in the jail (!!).

The title 'Let's bring our hero's home' is kind of misnomer as this is no rescue attempt (like Behind Enemy Lines, Saving Private Ryan, etc.). Couple of scenes by Kay Kay (a good playback singer – playing a Pakistani jail officer) and Akhilendra Mishra are impressive. The heroine is a waste. A couple of songs here and there. Though the escape planning, akshaye in Pakistan, and some of them are lame (compared to good Hollywood thrillers) it is a good entertainment package.
