Goofs

The English subtitle reads, "A rook moves slowly and looks insignificant. But if this very rook overcomes all the hurdles and reaches the other side.. it can assume the place of a Queen and even beat the King." The word should be "pawn" instead of "rook." The actor speaking, is holding a pawn. See more »

User Reviews

 
One of the best Indian action films !!
24 January 2005 | by jaidev22-1See all my reviews

I just saw this movie on weekend and loved every bit of it !! i don't know whether its going to be a hit commercially but it was fun action packed ride. very few Indian films match upto the technical quality shown in this film, it is heavily inspired by classics like shaan and sholay but the subject of catching a terrorist is treated differently and effectively, critics said the film lacks in content but it was never meant to be a dramatic fare. it lives upto the best in the genre of action thrillers. after "dhoom" this is the best Indian action film. performances were good and good to see mithun back on the big screen after a long time. if u like action movies you will love this one.

8 out of 10.
