He praised the music saying it is a big plus with Na Tum Jano Na Hum and Ek Pal Ka Jeena being the pick of the lot.
The reviewer for Filmfare rated the film three-and-a-half out of five, and wrote, Rakesh Roshan has come up with a winner. A racy script, excellent product values and taut editing result in a storyline that keeps the audience hooked throughout. The music is also good, especially the title song and numbers such as Ek pal ka jeena and Chand sitare. Hrithik is very good in the action and dance sequences, and proves his acting calibre in his very first film. Amisha too performs well.
The storyline of the movie is similar to Ratha Sapthami.
