A showcase of Amitabh Bachchan's legendary, versatile actingskills!
19 November 2000 | by roni-14See all my reviews

Mahaan is a great family movie, with loads of action. The story is captivating and full of twists, with a happy ending, one of my all-time favourite movies - (out of Hollywood and Bollywood)! The renewed brotherly relationship between Guru and Shankar is brought to light with the "Ha-Ha Brother" song and fight scene in the gymnasium, against about a 100 thugs. Has a romantic soundtrack and a story that makes the viewer appreciate the unity of a family.
