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.

Must see for Bachchan fans.
12 November 2002 | by Curious-from southSee all my reviews

The story is that of injustice done to a noble man, avenged by his son, somewhere in between blurring the line dividing the good and the bad. Bachchan plays the avenger to the perfection. There is no actor all over the world (and I mean the whole world!!) who can portray the anguish and anger like Amitabh Bachchan and this is exploited in the movie till the end.
