Editorial Reviews

A mother gives birth to twins. Unfortunately, they are separated. One of the children ends up in neighbouring Pakistan and grows up a devout Muslim named Tauheed, while the other grows up as a Hindu named Ajay. With the on-going rivalry and hatred between the two countries, both find themselves on the opposite side, and must battle each other. The only way they can unite is by saving the life of the Pakistani Prime Minister, who himself has become the target of terrorists.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Un-Official Spokesperson for India October 18, 2011
Format:DVD
It is clear from the start what this is- the map of India is drawn with Pakistan and Bangladesh re-included- as the true HINDUSTAN, a country re-united, a functional nationalism (see S.R.Mehrotra Towards India's Freedom and Partition (Deluxe Reprint, 2005)) Mehrotra: "The partition of India was tantamount to divorce before marriage." in Michael Wood's Story of India disc 6.

This movie is Producer Veeru Devgan's DREAM (Veeru is the real father of Ajay) - a spoof spy action comedy romance retro-recreation of a 70's era Indian film set in 1997, at the 50th Anniversary of the Independence (and Partition).

It is an unabashed espousal of HOPE for re-unification without any sense of reality on screen. Even though the movie carried an "Age 15" rating, this is a movie for young viewers, with its action , double play of Ajay, both as innocent "Castle" type Indian author of mysteries, and simultaneously his own identical twin who is a Pakistani engaged in terrorism and espionage against India.

Two musical numbers of note by Sukhwindara Singh: Amitabh Bachchan sing in an Indian army camp during the border Pakistan/India dispute of 1971- a campy recreation of a period movie song production; and Manisha Koirala's Bollywood casino number- rising out of the floor draped in a purple veil.

This is a romp with no real additional drama at stake, some entertaining double takes on Ajay an his brother, a teaching film, and a wonderful performance by Amitabh in his "post-dramatic" period as THE UN-OFFICIAL SPOKESPERSON FOR INDIA.

See Amitabh Bachchan as DEV Dev for another version of this alter ego.

I only watched this cause I was bored but it turned out to be pretty interesting film I won't give anything away as the plot is really good and its definitely one of the better Indian films of the late 1990's. The action is great, the acting alright, Amitabh is as always great, but the songs we can do without.
