User Reviews

This is a great film with excellent cinematography.
31 March 1999 | by porsche-3See all my reviews

This is a great film, even though the screenplay is dull Santosh sivan's camera work is excellent. Rahman's music is superb especially the "Chaiyya Chaiyya"song. FarahKhan's choreography is good in the Chaiyya chaiyya song (dancing in a moving train).Sharukh's acting is classic in all parts of the movie. The best one in this movie is cinematography by SantoshSivan.I think this film will show his calibre as the best cinematographer in india to date.
