Nice buddy action movie!
6 October 2011 | by Boy_with_no_nameSee all my reviews

Mr. Khan n Mr. Khanna star as a couple of dacoit brothers from the village who after their whole gang is slaughtered by the police thanks to Anwar Hussain Saab move to "Bambai" to get revenge against him and help out the poor as well.It's funny n fast-paced with a slow climax but a nice supporting cast including Ajit,Sudhir,Sulakshana Pandit and Bindu who carry it off well enough.This is one of those films where you can see the main characters had a lot of fun while making it and it helps that Mr. Khan and Mr. Khanna were real life buddies.Working together again in Qurbaani'80 and Dayavan'88(both directed by Mr. Khan).Specially loved the two songs that they perform together in this movie.
