Storyline

Karim Khan is employed as driver for a gangster named Don, who has an accident with his car, and asks Karim to take the blame for it for a hefty sum of cash, which Karim does so, and is imprisoned. But Don does not fulfill his promise, and as a result, Karim's wife, Razia, and new-born son are left destitute. Razia complains to Police Inspector Anwar, who arrests Don and holds him in prison, pending his trial in court. When Anwar finds out that his new-born son, Iqbal, is in need of a pace-maker, which he is unable to afford, he makes a compromise with Don, who lets him have one. Iqbal undergoes surgery and a pace-maker number 786, considered lucky in Islamic faith, is attached to his tiny heart. But Don and a prostitute by the name of Banoo have other plans for Anwar, which they carry out successfully, and abduct young Iqbal, who ends up growing on the streets as an orphan named Allah Rakha. Several years later, Allah Rakha has grown up, and is friendly with a prostitute named Rani, ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

excellent, Fantastic and Superb
29 September 2008 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This movie as we know was suppose to go to Amitabh Bachchan, who turned down the role. It was during the time Amitabh was involved in politics and didn't have time for films. Anyway, Jackie Shroff does a good job as i am not fond of him as an actor. Meenakshi is pretty and she plays the prostitute in this film and delivers a good performance. The movie has many top actors in this film which include Waheeda Rehman and Shammi Kapoor. Dimple Kapadia is an actress im not a big fan of, but she was alright. The movie has an interesting script with many twists and mix of action, comedy, romance and adventure. The movie resembles the fantastic film Coolie, but still is different. It is directed by Desai family who are the best directors in Hindi cinema. Overall this is a fantastic film that everyone should enjoy apart from racist people.
