Raja Hindustani
3 September 2018 | by rajeb-68590See all my reviews

Hello, this movie is one of my most favorite movies ever! I really enjoyed it weather the story, the music and the performance of the actors. Songs like Pardesi pardesi, kinta Sona, ayoho Meri zindagi, also pucho Zara pucho were very popular. Aamir Khan and Karishma Kapoor won their first best actor and best actress awards for this film. Along side HAHK, DDLJ and this film Raja Hindustani were 3 of the all time blockbusters of the 90s. Thank you.
