Brilliant movie of sacrifice!!!!
29 September 1999 | by MeghaSee all my reviews

This was a wonderful movie which had so much to offer. It shows us how love can mean sacrifice. It was truly refreshing watching this movie. Badshah Khan and Benazier are simply too good. I'd write this down as a classic of all times. Music was outstanding, dialogue was strong, characters were excellent, nothing wrong with it.
