This Indian film, like others of its genre, bears a distinct resemblance to the spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone, which has prompted many to refer to them as "curry westerns." Badshah Khan (Amitabh Bachchan), an Afghan warrior, falls in love with Benazir (Sridevi), who tells him that he must kill Habibullah, the man who murdered her father. Killing the man brings him into conflict with a bandit named Pasha. Badshah, violently out of place in present-day society and embattled by present-day criminals, is imprisoned and separated from Benazir. It is not for many years that he can find reconciliation with the modern world, and a final reckoning with his enemies. Overly stylized direction and genre-mixing are standard in popular Indian cinema (this film even includes musical numbers), but can seem distracting to audiences unfamiliar to these films. However, this huge three-hour epic is powerful enough to accommodate every offbeat element. ~ Jonathan E. Laxamana, All Movie Guide

Nice guy or a just into S&M. by ggsuperhero July 14, 2003 - 4:11 PM PDT

Mr. Bachchan sporting a turban is a love-sick Muslim who will kill and kill and kill and spend a majority of his life imprisoned in the name of love.

The goal of the movie seems to want to spin around themes of love, integrity and friendship. What comes out is a somewhat comical film on stretching the limits of story telling and cinematography. A lot of the movie is shot in Nepal though they want you to think it's in Afganistan.

It's a good movie to watch if you want to see Amitabh in an over abundance of makeup. Fun movie to watch on those nights when you have nothing to do.
