All-time classic
26 May 2012 | by gurdeepmann59See all my reviews

For some reason this film reminded me a lot of ANDHAA KAANOON (1983) which had the same type of cast; Amitabh Bachchan, Rajnikant, Madhavi, Om Shivpuri

The film has injustice done to the lead actor with Amitabh Bachchan appearing in the second half taking over the film just like ANDHAA KAANOON.

Rajnikanth's death scene is well-handled and the climax is done-to- death.

Amitabh Bachchan shines with his lead role and takes over the second half Kamal Hassan makes a convincing performances as Amitabh's brother and shows a lot of versatile Rajnikant is OK in a special appearance Madhavi and Poonam Dhillon fill the heroine gap and help move the storyline Kader Khan and Shakti Kapoor are hilarious while Om Shivpuri, Sharat Saxsena, Kulbacshan Kharbanda are typecast
