One of the best Indian movies of my generation
17 October 2000 | by SabatnoogenSee all my reviews

I've stopped watching Hindi movies now because they are all formulaic and all of the stars lack charisma. Here today, gone tomorrow, they never invoke the all-around genius of former actors such as Amitabh Bachchan, Rajesh Khanna, and Dev Anand. This has been to date, Amitabh's last great role, and it is in a great movie. Although there are the inevitable sappy moments of today's movies, the acting is brilliant, the premise, although recycled, is recycled well. It is without a doubt, one of the greatest Indian films of the last 15 years.
