Best bollywood movie ever made
4 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was a superb film in every respect. The performances were top notch from the whole cast and the movie had a very hollywood feel to it.

Too bad that it didn't do good box office business that due to the fact that its concept and treatment was too much to swallow for the normal bollywood viewer.

But those who regularly watch Hollywood movies and also give some time for the better Bollywood movies should definately have a watch, because this is one of the best Bollywood movies every made.

There nuff said. go and watch it ...
