The writing is spot-on, which is filled with entertaining moments and awesome one-liners.

Kulraj Randhawa looks absolutely stunning.

Direction by Samir Karnik is excellent and he make the audiences,esp the masses to go woo with a perfect mix of Masala-action,comedy,romance,songs and all..Few let-backs of the movie are a slow first half,average editing and exaggerated fights.

Thus any film after watching that turkey would have a better than even chance of being entertaining.

The second half is icing on cake with lots of funny moments and confusion with the final action sequence of sunny deol is cherry on top.

In a nutshell this is an entertaining Masala movie-exploring the flavors of the true Indian cinema integrated with drama,emotions and humor,recalling the good old days of Bollywood.


Overall a nice entertaining movie.

Loads of Trivia to look out for in this movie which is exciting as your taken back in time.

It becomes such a entertaining laughing roller-coaster ride with no unnecessary cheap jokes and u can feel pain in your jaw at the end .

Apparently, the story is same old re-union types, but I enjoyed it.

First of all there is no story and so much over acting by bobby that you cant survive yourself in the multiplex watching this poor flick finding it damn hard to give a reason why brother why you made such a movie.

The movie makes great use of Sunny's He-Man image with exaggerated but visually stunning action sequences(with a sensational Dhol+Electronic Guitar background music which they should have released with the album), Bobby's energy and Dharmender's mere presence on the scene.

It is one of the very few films I have ever seen twice in one day, and still enjoyed it.

First half is predictable, but still enjoyable at the same time.

The first half is just fine entertaining you in bits and parts.

Post intermission the film moves at a great speed and has many more entertaining moments (with only 1 song) as compared to its first half.

This has got to be one of the worst movies ever made.
