My siblings have seen the movie, though I never got to watch it. It is surprising to hear of a sequel to an Indian film. I haven't been disappointed with Anil Kapoor or Sri Devi but this will be just... weird considering that they'll be taking up their roles after 20 years.
Shekar Kapur will have to come up with a villain who really has screen presence. The late Amrish Puri had it in abundance. Remember Mola Ram in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom or his role as a helpless father and a policeman in the unforgettable Gardish or his sweetly vicious performance in DDLJ (considered the most successful Hindi movie in Indian cinematic history)?
I am sure that Shekar Kapur will bring a level of excellence that's always expected of him and that is sorely been lacking from other directors (cough*SubhashGhai*cough). At least the movie won't disappear in the mostly atrocious three-movies-a-day that India hurls towards the masses.
