flawless...

this is a real gem of a movie...it's right there among the top 5 of my favorite Hindi movies. the movie hooks you right away and the plot never slackens throughout...coupled with realistic treatment, it makes the movie an instant favorite. also the subject is very different - the proxy war waged by Pakistan's ISI. refreshingly and reassuringly, there are no corrupt cops in the movie! Aamir Khan as ACP Rathore is superb. he brings alive a cop's passion and determination to cleanse the system of criminals. the action sequences are played out very realistically. Mukesh Rishi as ACP's right hand man is just brilliant! This actor usually plays only "black" characters - this surely added to the impact of his performance (for me, at least). There are some truly heart-warming scenes of Rathore with his family. Sonali Bendre as Rathore's love interest provided some (much-needed) light moments. And, finally, Naseeruddin Shah as ghazal singer-cum-terrorist played his part with understated villainy. i love such villains - they seem so real! the climax is truly innovative - it invariably brings a smile to your face. It's difficult to spot a flaw in the movie. and considering that it's the director's debut film, you have to doff your hat to him.

Aamir's the best actor- undisputed. Awesome movie which dealt with so many issues.

Bollywood to me started with sarfarosh. B4 watching sarfarosh, me n my pals were like these "cool" Hollywood movie buffs. Always prefering Sterling, New excelsior n Regal theaters in mumbai for Hollywood stuff. But sarfarosh changed everything. One day me n my fiancé jus entered this theatre midway without realising which movie was running. N that particular time this beer bar dance sequence from sarfarosh was going on. She told wtf, which z grade film did v enter for. Then v decided at least v wait till one hour. N by GOD, what an engrossing movie. N once the credits rolled v both looked at each other. During those days VHS rental was cheap n it used to b available easily. I saw it  again. Mind blowng experience. The editing of the movie was brilliant. Aamir's acting was top notch. Mukesh rishi deserved best supporting actor award. The movie dealt with so many important issues simultaneously especially during that era. Awesome movie. It too broke all the norms of a typical Bollywood trash.

Best Directorial Debut

John Matthan directs a fantastic film in his directorial debut. With so many characters popping in one after the other it would have been very difficult to maintain the flow of the film which John Matthan has done very successfuly. Aamir Khan as usual has given an excellent performance as A.C.P Rathore who is set to end the flow of Arms and ammunition from Pakistan to India. Aamir, the dedicated actor that he is, had studied all about the police force, the IPS people, talked with many police officers and stayed with some of them to study the role of ACP rathore.Nasserudin Shah has only 6 to 7 scenes but he dominates the movie. He has the role which was similarly played by Jack Nicholson in 'A Few Good Men'. Sonali Bendre is wasted in what turns out to be a fine performance by her. The surprise factor of the film is the acting of Mukesh Rishi which has got lots of critical acclaim from the critics and the general audience. Do not be surprised if he wins all the awards for "The Best Supporting Actor". Although the film is very predictible,the climax is the best part of the scene. This is the one of the best climax ever used in an hindi movie. Its hard to believe that this is John's directorial/writing debut.
