Very good !!!
13 December 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I think this movie is very good...For people who like family movies & believe in the "PARAMPARA" things (specially the oldies)....then just watch this film....... John's acting in this film was OK, though i don't think he is suited for these kind of emotional films....he looks better in films like Dhoom..... Salman was good but he had a small role...only till the interval....

Rani & Amitabh were very good as usual....& hema malini was OK

The film was stretched till the interval & after the interval everything goes at a fast pace....but overall, I think the film was very good.....

The dialogues were OK in the starting but in the end they were quite powerful...especially the 1 pushpa (the widow) says....

I THINK U SHOULD GO & WATCH THE FILM......
