...A Great Movie in its Own Right...
20 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Being British, this is my first venture into the world of Indian Cinema, having only seen Hollywood films - I was very impressed.

Amitabh Bachchan, was excellent as the tall, detached and imposing Suryaveer Singh, and plays his role with supreme talent.

The rest of the cast are also very good, Arjun Rampal brings a young hip character to the screen in his portrayal of Singh's colleague Shekhar.

The action scenes are extremely well choreographed, and serve his character well.

All in all this film is a great movie in its own right, with an awesome feel and an excellent cast.

I give this film 10 out of 10, and I will be certainly purchasing another of Bachchan's films.

I really liked this film, and I think for me it shows what Indian Cinema has to offer.
