Loved it!!!
7 January 2008 | by Dream_WomanSee all my reviews

This really has to be Sanjay's movie, he plays a villain and boy he pulls this role off so well, i loved this movie from day one and you can never get bored of watching it, the music was great too, one of my personal favourite's is "Choli Key Peeche!, god i so love that song, Madhuri danced so well and looked really hot in the song.

Madhuri plays a cop in this film who friends Sanjay, again she acted really well in this film, and Jackie Shorrof is in this movie too, he played his role really well, i can honestly say Subash Ghai did a fantastic job directing this film, the whole film is just amazing, kudos to the 3 main characters and the director., but i personally think that this movie was Sanjay's best performance to date.
