5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece, 17 Jun 2004
This is the first Bollywood film I have ever watched - and I must say I am very impressed. Completely different in style to any film I have seen before, this added a new flavour to the genre for me. The graphics are beautiful, the actors are brilliant and the women are stunning and the songs were truly amazing.
A brilliant semi-fictional work, this is a film easily right up there with Gladiator and Braveheart, and, in my opinion, perhaps even better. The love story is both convincing and quite gut-wrenching too. All in all, I would say this is a must-buy, even if only to watch something different for a change, that is not dominated by the hollywood-style.
Buy this film - it rules:)
