wonderful, harrowing movie,By Professor Cornelius from London , 05 Jan 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This is just a wonderful, harrowing movie, held together by some superb
acting, a sort of Indian Godfather and quite a saga. The climax to the
movie is absolutely gripping and the movie is lifted out of the ordinary
by the sensitive, nuanced performances of the principle characters.
On the other hand you can never entirely forget that this is a
Bollywood movie.. especially when the first quarter of this long films
seems like an idyllic love story, only to end abruptly with an exploding
car on a dusty Indian road. Then there are the dances, the casual
inclusion of a swaggering shah rukh khan, the bizarre injection of
humour after a bloody murder... yup, it's Bollywood alright.

Would Not Watch AgainBy a customer from Watford , 13 Oct 2010
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideWe found this film quite distribuing. The other world which got left behind and to return to violence between villages. The wife not knowing her husbands true identity???

good filmBy a customer from england , 07 Jan 2010good film to watch but also quiet sad. a good performance by all the actors
ShaktiBy a customer from Staines , 24 Dec 2008A very harrowing movie, good performances from Sanjay and Karisma. Excellent performance from Shahrukh. Glad I have seen it, would not watch it again.
Well acted movieBy ChunkyLafanga (28 reviews) from London , 15 Jul 2008Very interestng and well made movie. Nana Patekar is awesome and manages to steal every scene he is in. Though all the others also do extremely well.
Be warned this is a very violent movie and perhaps just a touch too long but defintley recommended.
