Music, Direction and a gripping plot.
30 July 2003 | by aditya_trehanSee all my reviews

A brilliant entertainer, which after two decades since its initial release still, has the potential to deliver its entertainment package.

Three hours of song, excellent music and a story revolving around re-incarnation and divine justice. The music is as great as the audience has come to expect from the team. The direction is snappy and the characters in the plot are all alive and vibrant with each and every one of them fitting in to the story line as vital pieces of the picture.

The guitar lead-in, which forms a prelude to the title song, is used effectively in a few instances in the movie and is instantly recognizable by anyone anywhere who has heard it just once.

The story is effective and easy for the Indian psyche to accept and appreciate since there has always been a feeling of mysticism and awe in the Indian mind when it comes to matters supernatural and the triumph of good over evil.
