Quotes

Rakesh Maria: Asgar Mukadam?
[Asgar murmurs an affirmation]
Rakesh Maria: Sit straight! Since when have you been working with Tiger Memon?
Asgar Mukadam: One year.
Rakesh Maria: What do you know about him?
Asgar Mukadam: Sir, I was merely a manager there.
Rakesh Maria: One year is long enough to become a hood from a manager.
Asgar Mukadam: Sir I only used to keep accounts.
Rakesh Maria: But you just said you were a manager! Look Asgar, I haven't eaten anything since morning... My head is hurting and I'm hungry... If you dont talk, I will make you do so! Tiger smuggles Silver, doesn't he? What else does he do...

seen without subtitles
6 May 2007 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

this is movie is fantastic. two things; i seen this movies in Bombay( Mumbai) where it had no subtitles. i didn't understand a single word that was being said but i totally understood almost every scene in the film ,(except those that all new characters in them). luckily i had just read Maximum City, Bombay Lost and Found By sekula Metha, which details a lot of the events in the movie. i am from Ireland and i don't speak any of the languages in th film. Marastaha? Hindi? As an exercise in visual film Making it was excellent. i cant wait to watch this again with subtitles

The acting was superb. deserves to be seen in the west
