7 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

Sunny Deol in another of his formula action flicks. Raveena who I love as an actress and everything else about her for that matter is there for eye candy and the songs. That is her role really the songs the rest is the storyline which is weak and the same as any other movie. Raveena why did you sign this movie and audiences don't bother buying video or DVD of it rubbish. Raveena and Sunny have done a much better movie which I have yet to see called Ziddi spend you money on that one I bet it's ten times better than this tripe by the way Raveena looks great in the songs. 7 out of 10 for the songs. 1 out of 10 for the movie. Definitely not going to be in anyones top 100 movies of all time list I'm sure.
