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.

Best Movie
23 October 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

After watching this movie I felt that this movie really touches your heart. Its a must watch movie if you appreciate good movies. It also lime-lights the facts in life, the ethics that what to follow and what not to. It also gives essence to nationality and the pain one goes though without their family and loved ones. The love for one's mother, one's brother and the responsibility one should never forget is the main theme of the movie. Life has no meaning without near and dear ones. I think Kumar Gaurav and Sanjay Dutt did a splendid job and there is no other way to make this film better. I think this movie is a milestone to the history of Indian Film Industry.
