Expect a Flop..But surprisingly you get a good movie.
14 June 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie out, only because i had nothing else to watch. The Trailer of this movie looked quite boring and had below average reviews. Judging by the name, you expect this kind of film to be a lame duck. I was caught by surprise, when i saw this Superb movie. Ajay Devgan gives a brilliant performance as the convict waiting for revenge, against the Police (Sunil Shetty) that put him in prison, and was responsible for the death of his pregnant wife (Diya Mirza). There are some great scenes in the movie like when Ajay finds out he has a son, and his son is the boy he kidnapped. Heart warming and a little emotional relationship between father and son. Ajay wishes to keep his son, but his son wants to go back to Sunil, who he considers his father. A nice entertaining movie that has some action, comedy, family relationships and good drama. The movie wasn't a Big Hit, which is quite a shame. In my opinion, this is a Good film, worth the watch. The gorgeous Priyanka Chopra has a small role.The movie belongs to Ajay Devgan delivering one of his Best performances I've seen. Watch out for the item dance sequence by the sexy Monalisa.
