The Association ruled that the movie's story and the one registered by Bohra were similar; Doshi had had to pay 150,000 Rupees to Bohra. See more »

Could be much better
6 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

In 1975 Amitabh gave a classic DEEWAAR which is remembered even today in 2004 Amitabh returns again with another DEEWAAR this time as an old prisoner of war

The film deals with the story of prisoners of war from India who are caught n arrested since 1971

The film deals with how they wanna escape and how Akshaye wants to save his father The film takes inspiration from 2 English films and also is too filmy Also another problem being the casting of the other actors who are arrested with Bachchan don't look old

The torture scenes are well handled and Akshaye's journey to Pakistan is well handled too Sanjay Dutt's scenes though cattering towards the masses are well handled The escape is well handled but Sanju's escape is too filmy Even Akshaye- Amrita track could be avoided rest the film is well handled and the second half gets better and till the end keeps you engrossed

Direction by Milan Luthria is good in parts, overall average Music is okay

Amongst actors Amitabh carries the film on his shoulders and is fantastic throughout 2004 was the best year for him, after KHAKEE, DEV this was his 3rd powerpacked performance Akshaye Khanna excels, sadly nowdays we see him doing c grade films mostly But he was outstanding in this serious role Sanju plays to the gallery and is fun to watch in a clichéd role Kaykay excels in his role Aditya Shrivastav too is fantastic Amrita Rao is avoidable, Tanuja is okay
