Interesting story plot. This movie centralizes around two close friends, Dev and Tej. Both are police officers, and each with different views. Conflicts of politics and beliefs stand to divide their friendship, despite years of grief and support. Great cast- Amitabh Bachchan, Om Puri, Fardeen Khan, Kareena Kapoor, and Rati Agnihotri. Worthy!

This is a

Amitabh and Om Puri are excellent in this look at Hindu-Muslim violence. While there are graphic scenes of violence, they are not overwhelming for those who have seen a few war movies. The real story develops outside of the riots, both before and after, and it is well done.

This was barely ok. I wouldn't pay much for watching it though, as it reviews rather common themes in Indian films; glorified cops and the Hindu-Muslim interaction. Besides, the music was not appealing at all, and the story left too many unanswered questions and incomplete ramification stories leaving the audience wondering what's is the background or what is going on. I felt the acting was respectable from the older actors Amitabh and Om Puri, but the rest were bad! such terrible tragedies and... 'like nothing' not well-developed characters and bad but pretty looking actors. Some images were pretty I have to admit, but the glorification of that one good cop and the constant perfect character Amitabh plays in so many movies got too old.

Simply amazing. Makes you look into the heart of human beings and not like what you see... I'm not surprised it's based on actual fact. It really makes you stop and think about wars all around the world and what they are really rooted on. The actors all gave a perfect performance. Kareena Kapoor who always acts silly in movies was an absolutely wonderful surprise. Great movie

A very disturbing story. But it is all based on reality... Kareena's power packed performance saves the day :-) For all those who appreciate serious cinema.

the embodiment of excellence...
The technical aspects of the movie was flawless. Govind took a storyline that would usually not appeal to many and made it engrossing throughout the whole duration of the movie. The performances were brilliant, it is questionable why no nominations were offered. Kareena was brilliant as a Muslim riot victim, showing particular prowess in the confession scene. Her deglamourised look only emphasized the strength of her performance.Fardeen and Kareena's chemistry was impeccable and they give one of bollywood's memorable kiss sequences. Fardeen Khan was surprisingly good, flitting through all his scenes well. This was one of Amitabh's best performances and given his track record, you know how good it must have been. Om Puri too was excellent in his role as a villain. The songs were nice and did not interrupt the plot. Kareena's singing of "Jab nahin aye the thum" only enhanced the movie. The other songs "Rangdini " and "Allah allah" have the correct emotional nuances in them. Dev was flawless.
