Storyline

A newspaper reporter exploits an ordinary man for few rupees to pose as a man who is fighting against the corrupt politicians and prints imaginary stories in his name to improve the circulation of her newspaper. People take him for real and he becomes a powerful leader of poor man. One day the paper prints a letter in his name that he is going to end his life fighting corruption. This puts the ordinary man in a fix. He knows that at this juncture he can't refute the accuracy of all those stories. He also realizes that he is the sole hope of millions. Finally, he buckles under moral pressure and jumps from an incomplete multi-storied building and ends his life. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

One of the best performances to date by Amitabh Bachchan
14 February 1999 | by (Sharjah) – See all my reviews

So it bombed at the box office. But that does not mean that the movie is bad. A remake of "Meet John Doe", Amitabh does justice to the role of John Doe. It's the story of a man, a wanderer, arriving in a town, looking for food and shelter. Instead, he meets with Shabana Azmi, a journalist who has caused a sensation in the media and political world by fabricating a story about "Azaad" who would be committing suicide by jumping off the top of a building. To make the character more believable, she needs someone who can play the role of "Azaad" and in pops Amitabh. A definite watch. 5 stars awarded.
