One-line Reviews (8)

Sometimes it's exciting, but sometimes it's boring and unwatchable.

And the second curiosity was that could Hema still look so stunning!!

Pretentious, overdone, phony...

Paresh Rawal does a brilliant job, he lifts the movie after some boring melodrama.

All the scenes from the very beginning were just so overdone and so pretentious.

Hema Malini, who looks stunning, is bound to give competition to her daughter.

The purple prose style, in which every emotion is underlined and highlighted, leads to intense overacting and a heavy reliance on corny reaction shots and melodramatic music for punctuation.

The on goings do slow the film down because of several crying scenes.
