great movie
8 October 2010 | by omprakash_06See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite movie. Watched it many time and every time it keeps getting better and better. A very entertaining, energetic,emotional, inspiring movie. The movie is a blend of excellent screenplay, direction, music and acting, great in every aspect of film making that is the reason why you will want to watch it again and again.

It's Mansoor khan's excellent direction that every actor Aamir Khan, Ayesha Jhulka , Deepak Tijori,Pooja Bedi really got into the skin of there character, even Deepak Tijori's friends were so good that no one else could take there place
