"It may be corny, unintentionally amusing at times, but it is also a lot of fun."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"This colorful Indian spy adventure constitutes the cinematic equivalent of the delightful and inconsequential escapism of a 700-page summer beach novel."
‑ Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times

‑ David Chute, L.A. Weekly

‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
