Excellent !
22 November 1999 | by shivcsSee all my reviews

Trishul is one of Bachchan's best movies. The role of Vijay was tailor made for him. Yash Chopra has created another master piece with this movie. It was a super-hit, running for more than 100 Weeks. The song 'Mohabbat bade kaam ki' is a very good song.
