The film was a hit at the box office and won the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Movie, but was a flop at the box office and turned out to be one of the most financially costly movies for its producers. It also marked Sanjay Dutt's first appearance on Indian screen after a five-year hiatus. 827ec27edc
