Standard Hindi Action movie with good songs
10 May 2000 | by vinod-2See all my reviews

If you're a old hindi movie fan its a must see.The plot might have been original for those days, by today you've probably seen a hundred movies along the same story line. But the choreography is worth watching. If you're a music fan there are some good songs including the infamous "Mera Naam Chin Chin Chu".
