Shamsher Khan (played by Sanjay Dutt) is a Muslim, however when we see him writing on a notepad, we see red thread on his right wrist which is worn by Hindus. For other scenes in the film, Sanjay covered his wrist with the sleeve of his shirt, however in this scene the sleeve is folded up and we can see the red thread. See more »
So they are making a sequel & I watched the prequel first to have that flow. I am impressed by Apoorva Lakhia & Sanjay Gupta for creating a very good thriller plot. Do not listen to these IMDb board members, they seriously despise Bollywood movies.
Set in the 90s, the drama involving gangsters & Mumbai Police is a very fine watch and when it reaches the crescendo, the enjoyment triples. Performances are great by the whole cast & specially by Vivek Oberoi. Music is chunky & screenplay is amazing with special mention to the scene where it all the gangsters are involved with different policemen. Simply superb!
If you are a die-hard action fan, go for it, because this one has cylinder explosions, gun fires & RPG.
