He ends up rescuing dozens of girls, who have been entrapped by General Dong. While the girls manage to escape, he and Dolly are captured.

Shom Shom Shamo Sha-Sha
29 October 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It's a treat for you if you liked Elaan-e-Jung and Farishtay.Reason?Exactly,the same storyline.After Farishtay,Anil Sharma's another action packed pot-boiler.The plot of a tyrant King/General is Director Sharma's trademark now.Also casting Dharmendra is another ritual now.

But Anil Sharma's direction is distinguishable from the scores of similar plotted movies released in early 90s.

Old Dharmendra tried hard to flex his muscles but in vain.

The song involving the 3 actors as drag-queen is hilarious and strongly recommended.

Amrish Puri as Gen.Dong of Dongrila is a delight.He is undoubtedly the best actor to play the primary antagonist in a bollywood pot-boiler.Shom Shom Shamo Sha-Sha.
