I love this movie.this movie is one of the best Bollywood movies on the cinema history. acting and directing is high quality.director (Rahul Rawail)is unusual and very strong.directing is like the best American western movies.this movie remembers us "sholay" movie too. best scenes is river side fight ,"arjun"gang attack to devil character:"Vishnu" and his soldiers to rescue "javli". acting by Bollywood stars:"sunny Deol" and "meenakshi Sheshadri" is top of other stars.but the most enjoyable character for me than other characters,is "Ahmed".

music is very good and specially in action scenes is very very exciting.songs is very beauty and feeling,like (Mere Yaar Ko Mere Allah) song. totally this movie is one of the best movies for Bollywood lovers.enjoy it .
