Another Masterpiece from Ratnam
24 May 2004 | by freddiejasonSee all my reviews

An excellent movie. Though Ratnam makes this story a little unbelievable in the end. You do not really mind that because you get involved deep with it. Best part of the movie is its background score, specially for Abhishek's character. Things not to be missed:- Abhishek Bachhan's acting(cant miss that one) Ajay Devgan's action sequences Howrah Bridge action sequence Vivek's light comedy The bike on Howrah which actually crashed breaking Vivek's leg Hospital scene and others in which Vivek is limping(because of the real life accident) Om Puri's near perfect bengali accent

Overall, a very good Hindi movie after a long time.
