Army of leather clad criminals
10 March 2007 | by HeadleyLamarrSee all my reviews

Geeta (Sridevi) is married to Arjun (Shahrukh) but before their child is born he is killed by the weapons trafficking Naagraaj (Danny Denzongpa). In the meantime five young men have been arrested for murder and are in jail waiting to be put to death. Sridevi busts them out of jail, and uses them to plot revenge against Naagraaj. Instead of the usual Jai Ma Kaali version we have the Jai Jai Mahadev version and a rather straight story without too many surprises. The leather clad criminals are very forgettable, and their love stories are inane and silly. Danny Denzongpa does a good job as the cruel criminal type, Kiran Kumar is good as the jailer brother. Shahrukh has a small but vital role and does not disappoint, he does it competently and has good chemistry with Sridevi. Sridevi shines as usual - this may not be one of her best, but even that is always good. The song and dance on broken glass was certainly inspired by Sholay. The music is decent, the story a simple tale of revenge but the movie is certainly worth a one time watch.
