Good masala entertainment
27 July 2012 | by gurdeepmann59See all my reviews

Shashi Kapoor and Danny Denzongpa play long-lost brothers and were separated in a fire caused by Madan Puri

Years later the pair meet with Shashi as the modern Robin Hood Fakira and Danny as the dangerous hit man Toofan However they are both as enemies because Fakira robs Madan Puri's goons and Madan Puri hires Toofan to bring Fakira to him

The direction is OK Music is good especially "Sunke Teri Pukar" and "Tota Maina Ki Kahani"

Shashi Kapoor and Danny Denzongpa are both awesome and brilliant in their roles Shabana Azmi is OK Asrani is good Mukri is funny Madan Puri excels Aruna Irani is good Asit Sen is OK The rest of the cast are funny
