Alternate Versions

In the UK, the distributors were forced to edit the film to remove a scene of cockfighting as it was considered to breach the requirements of the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937. Furthermore the distributors decided to make further changes to the film in order to lower the rating from '15' to '12A'. These additional changes removed detail of a blade embedded in man's head, accompanied by blood spurt, and a bloody bullet impact to chest. See more »

One time watch only.
4 November 2016 | by tmbroseSee all my reviews

The songs and the scenery in the entire movie is good.

But it is very noisy, unnecessary disturbing noises will irritate you, may be some may get head ache too.

The jungle villain type character with uniform and gun and hairs like birds nest is actually funny, from no angle he looks like a villain.

In one fight sequence the hero is carrying his younger brother and fighting, i don't know why because he could have left him in a safe place fought the villains instead. The action director used more than required brains i guess.

Otherwise it is a one time watch movie only.
