One of the best movies of Indian Cinema. This is a must see for all Bollywood movies lover. What a performance from Amitabh Bachchan!! I don't have words for it. I doubt anybody could make such a movie in future or anybody could act like Amitabh, God of Indian Cinema.
Loosely based on Haji Mastan's life, this movie portrays the life of Vijay from a dockyard worker to an underworld don. Legend is Amitabh Bachchan met Haji Mastan in a race course in Bombay before the shooting of Deewar started. He saw the moist eyes of Haji Mastan and was quite impressed with them. In an interview he said he tried his best to make his eyes look moist to add life to the character. Amazing script by Salim Javed and direction by Yash Chopra.
