* IndiansWithIglas: Practically every character is either a terrorist or a member of the Indian Army. Anjali is the daughter of one of Jai's father's war buddies while Pooja is the daughter of General Mallappa.

Essentially an Indian cinematic version of ''Series/TwentyFour'' with particularly good Bollywood Masala and the smallest helping of {{Fatal Attraction}} added into the mix. Noted amongst Bollywood filmgoers for MadhuriDixit's performance as Anjali, one of the most layered roles of her career and the only one that wasn't strictly heroic. Anil Kapoor was given the National Movie Award by the Indian Government for what was considered the best performance of his then-twenty year career.

* DisContinuity: Many people felt the second half in general and the ending in particular as underwhelming and too happy for all the build up done in the first half.

* TheWoobie: Anjali for most of the movie, and Jai [[spoiler: when is courtmartialed for treason]]

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Mostly Subverted. Every song in the movie has at least some relevance to the plot and characters. Still, considering that its an action movie, the very idea of musicals might be offputting. YMMV.

* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: As mentioned above, this is essentially a Bollywood version of ''[=~24~=]''. As such, this trope is a must. Jai is both on the giving and receiving ends of the trope at different times of the movie.
