Awesome Awesome Legendary Movie
24 February 2011 | by thewise1See all my reviews

this is an awesome movie. legendary performance by Sanju Baba. He is gr8 in this my favourite actor in Bollywood. Also check out Madhuri Dixit (so sexy in the song Choli Ke Peeche) What's Behind The Blouse, That body, those curves, sexy hip shaking etc. This film also has my favourite song Nayak Nahin Khalnayak Hoon Main (I'm Not The Hero, I'm The Villain). words can't describe how moving and powerful this movie plus with English subtitles on the DVD, people who have never watched Bollywood movies b4 should start here and you'll never find a better movie, how i miss the 90's???.

Sanjay is also great in the following movies Vaastav (The Reality) 1999 MunnaBhai (2003) and may more, he really is the best Indian actor ever.

Watch the movie and you'll love it and if you already have, y not post on it

A powerful story about a mother's love for her son, good or evil...

And Remember:

Nayak Nahin Khalnayak Hoon Main (I'm Not The Hero, I'm The Villain)!!!
