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)

Amitabh Bhachan would have been better for doing the part of Iqbal.
24 December 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was fantastic but I would have prepared Amitabh Bhachan as Allah Rakha because he just brings up the magic because he was good as the main character in coolie.Jackie Shroff was good at playing Iqbal as well and I would say that this was his best film. Bob Christo was good at playing Don and Biswajeet was average at playing an Inspector (Inspector Anwar). I thought Shaami Kapoor was great at playing his role. Waheeda Rehman was good in this film but I prefer her in Coolie. Bindu was good at playing the negative role in this film but I thought she was much better in Main hoon na because she was hilarious.
