Quotes

Vijay Dinanath Chavan: This is a city only in name. But laws of jungle prevail here. The housefly eats microbes. The frog eats the housefly. The snake eats the frog. The mongoose kills the snake. The fox sucks the blood of the mongoose. The lion chews-up the fox. Here, every powerfull being lives by killing the one weaker than himself.

Why he's the greatest movie star of all time
23 February 2007 | by akthar_cSee all my reviews

This film which has a lot of Scarface about it is superb. There are 2 major reasons for this... The 2 lead stars. A superb performance from Mithun is diminished somehow due to a devastating performance from Amitabh.

Casting is key to the success of this film. The lesser parts are also performed flawlessly. I think the fact that there is not much music in the film helps. It is an epic and is the kind of film that non Hindi speaking people should see to appreciate Bollywood.

If you've not seen it... Watch it now. This film is up there with the 'City of God' and 'Hard Boiled' world cinema masterpieces. It is the Bollywood equivalent.

Why was Amitabh voted the greatest all time movie star?? This is why!!!
