Trivia

The background music composed by Rahul Dev Burman in the Amitabh's warehouse truck scene (when he steals back the truck) in the movie Shakti ,was used as inspiration years later. In the song "Mujhe Rang De" in the film Thakshak, A. R. Rahman used the same instrument in the first few seconds of the song as Rahul Dev Burman did in the beginning of the warehouse truck scene.

nice idea, bad film
12 December 1999 | by nancakeSee all my reviews

Yes, it's refreshing to see a bollywood film that isn't solely a romance - there are too few original ideas these days. This film is about the Bombay mafia, and in particular the son of a Bombay don who gets crazed with power and loses control and respect for human life. There is the obligatory romantic angle between Ajay Devgan and Tabu, but this is thankfully kept to a minimum. The trouble is the film just doesn't carry. A weak storyline and poor acting from the main villain contribute the the film's failure to get the audience involved in the plot. Although Ajay and Tabu are brilliant at acting, their talents are wasted in this film. The music for the film - by A. R. Rehman -is really good, but the songs are intrusive and do not fit in with the feel of the movie. Overall, it is not surprising this film has flopped.
