one time thrill with love to watch
1 September 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A handsome and lonesome hero Jamal how quite and how cute.. brilliant work by Gotham with Harris and reforming.. we have gone too far in technical aspects and cutting between shots are very sharp..good thrill throughout on watching...director has touched the soft corner of Jamal too bit long which causes slip in some scenes.. He is not full determined whether its a love based thriller or thrill base love.. its a part of compromising.. us scenes are lovable to eyes.. its such easy for villains to got out of America immediately...tremendous effort by the team in aspect technical aspect and sound mixing may be a milestone for Indian cinema starts from here...recommended for high type thrill
