A brilliantly made movie from the White Feathers Films Production. A must watch for all action movie lovers. Based on the real incident of the 1992 firing at Lokhandwala Complex in Andheri in India. There were certain Factual Errors in the movie however it is a gr8 cinematic experience. All the stars have portrayed their characters brilliantly. Sanjay Dutt as Shamsher Singh & Vivek Oberoi as Maya Dolas are outstanding. Suniel as Kaviraj Patil & Tushar as Dilip Buwa gave a fantastic performance. The movie was highly under-rated due to excess violence which is not a regular in Hindi Movies There were certain parts which were included just to increase the length of the movie. However the exiting climax covered up all the flaws.................. All in all a brilliant movie.
