Audience Member Maybe more like a 2.25. I watched this movie because it always comes up when people talk about Amitabh Bachchan because he almost died filming it. Like Koyla (1997), the writing just wasn't there and the lead kind of carried the movie as best he could. It was just one ridiculous thing after another, but it was engaging, which saved it from being a really hot mess. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member OUTSTANDING! If you want to learn how to cook French Omlet, I suggest this Movie has the best receipe. I guarantee you will be over joyed! ;) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member very dramatic in typical Bollywood fashion.
