Goofs

The English subtitle reads, "A rook moves slowly and looks insignificant. But if this very rook overcomes all the hurdles and reaches the other side.. it can assume the place of a Queen and even beat the King." The word should be "pawn" instead of "rook." The actor speaking, is holding a pawn. See more »

Sleek action thriller despite lack of story
11 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

Mithun "Dada" makes a great comeback as the antagonist in this action-packed thriller. He proves his worth in the climax of the movie with his convincing expressions and dialogues. Action is fantastic. Set in Europe, the action sequences are very thrilling. The beauty of Indian cinema is that even in a hardcore action film, you'll find a soul and emotions. The bonding of the "five unlikely heroes," their support for each other, and their determinations and frustrations were nicely shown. However, there is not much of a story in this movie. There is basically one mission for the team of five and their efforts towards accomplishing it. Nonetheless, the well-executed action scenes and character development fill that void. Songs are OK. Performances are decent. (Funny note: John Abraham's yelling/hissing noise at the end is really comical.)
