One of Jackie and Priyadarshan's best
26 March 2009 | by silvan-desouzaSee all my reviews

Priyadarshan made some good serious films earlier before HERA PHERI

This is one of his best films ever

The story is well handled and the turn of events are well handled Amrish- Jackie scenes are a highlight and the way the film moves it keeps you on the edge till the end

The film may seem dry for some people but the way it is handled deserves kudos

Priyadarshan's direction is at it's best Music is okay

Jackie Shroff excels, this is one of his best performances Sadly we don't get to see such roles from him now Amrish Puri is another highlight, the veteran always gave his best in Priyan films Dimple is good Suresh Oberoi is likable Mukesh Rishi is okay rest are okay
