Storyline

Janki Kapoor (Nutan) and her two sons (Ravi Kapoor and Vicky Kapoor) come from a poor middle class family, and have difficulties making ends meet. To add to this burden, the family has to content with the waywardness of Vicky Kapoor, who is always getting into trouble with the law, and getting into fights. Vicky is determined to get a job overseas Dubai, United Arab Emirates, as he has heard of thousands of Indians making a successful living there. Ravi arranges for his visa and the money to go to Dubai. Once in Dubai, the Kapoors receive no word from him, and eventually give up on him. Vicky has encountered problems in Dubai, as he was cheated out of a job, as he had obtained a visa under false pretences. In order to remain in Dubai, he must work for an international and ruthless smuggler named Rana (Paresh Rawal), and must earn his keep or be turned over to the authorities.

Outstanding
5 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Naam is a terrific treat and a great film, The music and the acting of Sanjay Dutt was out of this world.

The story at the start is slow and boring but it's worth the wait because the second part of the film is outstanding and Sanjay Dutt in this section of the film is out of this world and gives Amitabh Bachchan a run for his money, Reminds you of the similarities of the role Amitabh Bachchan plays in some of his early films, A Shame Sanjay Dutt couldn't do roles like this more often, A one off Sanjay Dutt stunner,

A must watch Film, A film you can watch over and over again.
