Movie Review


Monojit Lahiri

When Salman Khan first burst upon the scene and screen in the late eighties – Maine Pyar Kiya – he took the youngistan by storm!

Well-toned and a cool dancer, he capitalized on the flavour of the day –Young Romance – and reeled of one success after another. Along with Aamir & Sharukh, he formed a matchless troika that re-scripted film success in B-town.
