Trivia

Raj Babbar wanted to do the second role very badly. He told Prakash he would be willing to step into the role if Vinod Khanna were to decline the film.Raj Babbar loved the sacrifcing character and thought the film could change his career for the better. Vinod Khanna did eventually leave the film but Prakash Mehra went directly to Mithun Chakraborthy. Prakash Mehra was hesitant to cast Raj Babbar for a few reasons. The first was Bachchan and Babbar's on going feud/rivalry over Rekha . Plus Babbar's comments over the Namak Halaal episode. Then Ran Babbar's declining star power at the box office. Raj Babbar was no longer the hot selling star he was after Insaaf Ka Tarazu. See more »

A classic stink!
20 May 2006 | by vsatheSee all my reviews

This movie is a classic example of the terrible movies Amitabh acted in late 80's. Really childish, overacted and long movie. About the only thing notable about this movie is the title song sung by Kumar Sanu marks his entry in Hindi movie industry in a big way (he had a couple of stints before it.)

If you liked "Shahenshah" there is a chance you might like this movie. Songs are so-so, acting is mediocre. There is too much silly/bad Amitabh in this movie even for an Amitabh fan like me. I watched this movie in theater when it came out and had to force myself to stay in there only because I had paid 7 bucks to watch it.
