Rakesh Maria: Asgar Mukadam?
[Asgar murmurs an affirmation]
Rakesh Maria: Sit straight! Since when have you been working with Tiger Memon?
Asgar Mukadam: One year.
Rakesh Maria: What do you know about him?
Asgar Mukadam: Sir, I was merely a manager there.
Rakesh Maria: One year is long enough to become a hood from a manager.
Asgar Mukadam: Sir I only used to keep accounts.
Rakesh Maria: But you just said you were a manager! Look Asgar, I haven't eaten anything since morning... My head is hurting and I'm hungry... If you dont talk, I will make you do so! Tiger smuggles Silver, doesn't he? What else does he do...

Black Friday real movie great cinema
17 February 2007 | by salimkatchhiSee all my reviews

Black Friday Is a movie to be watched by every Indian no matter if he don't like violence movie , its a real cinema & truth we should accept because many knows only one side of a blast story, after watching movie i saw both the side which i was not aware of , accused person who were involved in blast should be given severe imprisonment , but what about other who were indirectly involved it by landing RDX ,this was not possible without their help,actors in movie are real artist ,casting was excellent location are real , blast scene were terrific , hats off to director of the movie it needs guts to make such type of cinema , worth watching this movie,
