Trivia

The launch of this movie was different in the sense that there was no coconut-breaking ritual or sounding-the-clapperboard ceremony. Instead the lead men Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt and Akshaye Khanna unveiled their giant-sized pictures and clicked the remote for the screening of the one-minute promo. See more »

Deewar:: Lets chase the audience home!
2 November 2004 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Amitabh should sincerely think twice about the credentials of the director and most importantly the script before giving the nod. And the same I would say for Sanjay Dutt and Akshaye Khanna. I mean how is that everyone just overlooked the basic fabric of the movie-making.

Agreed that it the premise of POW has never been attempted before on Indian screen, but that doesn't give you the freedom to take cinematic liberties to such great extent.

Yes the movie is mash of so many English POW Escape movies. But if that was the case, why didn't the makers decide to choose one classic English POW and make a complete re-make of it.

Pakistani bashing - Oh my God!!!! Its so clumsy and cheesy that makes you wonder why it has been forced in such a gawdy manner. Guys - you need to watch Gadar and thats what I call classy Pakistani bashing.

Romantic track - when do Bollywood film-makers ever learn to do away with conventional movie-making!!! Akshaye-Amrita track is so very cliché'd and aptly justifies the word "force-fit".

Marhaba-Marhaba song - my personal opinion the latest Remix albums are much better.

Milan Lutharia no but Sridhar Raghavan Yes, I was expecting a lot from him. But as a writer he was a big downer. The script doesn't have holes, it has craters!!!

It looks like Milan Lutharia was in a hurry to finish the task at the earliest.

Having said of POW premise, please correct me if I am wrong - LOHA was one movie I watched as a kid and was a bloody good engrossing movie.
