Storyline

Vikram (Amjad Khan) is arrested for possession of drugs, but claims that he was framed by Rajan (Sujit Kumar), his associate, but no one believes him. Desperately he turns to his lawyer friend, Vikram, only to have himself prosecuted at his very hands. Vikram gets sentenced, and upon his release goes to Amit and asks him to negotiate to get him his share of their former business from Rajan. Amit agrees to do so, but the negotiation gets bitter, argument ensues, followed by fisticuffs and use of firearms, which lead to the death of Rajan. It is now Amit's turn to be on the run from the law, as his pleas that he acted in self-defense are ignored, and there is no one to turn to for help. Amit's pregnant wife, Janki, asks him to run away somewhere safe, while she re-locates to another city until his file is closed or set aside. Amit runs to nearby Nepal, while Janki gives birth to twins. Unfortunately, for her the twins and her get separated. She does manage to find Shankar, but there is ...

Goofs

Rana saab has a daydream about meeting his long-lost wife and subsequent confrontation with Inpsector Shankar. However, at that point in the film, Rana saab had never met Inspector Shankar before so he couldn't have known that he was a police officer and that he was investigating him. Rana saab actually first meets Inspector Shankar immediately after the daydream scene. See more »

A showcase of Amitabh Bachchan's legendary, versatile actingskills!
19 November 2000 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Mahaan is a great family movie, with loads of action. The story is captivating and full of twists, with a happy ending, one of my all-time favourite movies - (out of Hollywood and Bollywood)! The renewed brotherly relationship between Guru and Shankar is brought to light with the "Ha-Ha Brother" song and fight scene in the gymnasium, against about a 100 thugs. Has a romantic soundtrack and a story that makes the viewer appreciate the unity of a family.
