Storyline

Inspector Vijay Verma is a very lonely cop whose only family is a younger brother Ajay Verma who is studying abroad. He also has two good friends Shekhar and Seema. One day when he arrests the criminal mastermind Jojo Braganza, he is shocked when Jojo is released from police custody because his corrupt lawyer shows the court a video tape showing him at a completely different place so therefore he couldn't have committed the crime. From this day on they become enemies and Vijay is hot on Jojo's trail every time he commits a crime. One day while watching a film called Seeta Aur Geeta, he realizes that two people can be at different places at the same time if they are twins. He realizes that Jojo has a twin brother called Tony who covers for him each time he commits a crime so he can get away with it easily. He successfully gets Jojo arrested and put in prison. However Jojo escapes and hides out at the house of Shekhar and Seema. When Shekhar realizes that Tony and Jojo are wanted ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

AB does Dirty Harry!
15 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

During these days when Amitabh was almost on his way out and Ramesh Sippy wasn't in the comfort zone either. The 90's had to be the worst decade for Amitabh as it marked the fall of a legend. After Ganga Jamuna Saraswati, Toofan and Jaadugar, it was Akayla's turn to take the beat by the public. And did they public beat it? Of course. The film was something we had been seeing since the 80's, AB's act towards injustice and being a responsible cop to take the villain but this time, Clint Eastwood style! Obvoiously AB had done his homework to mimic Clint because I cannot imagine anyone else that could have done it down Bollywood! The story itself is too hallow. More hallow then Ramesh Sippy's last nightmare Bhrastachar. So no way this film could have survived at the box office. The villain, Keith Stevenson, hammers badly. A miscast. The only thing that could have helped this film was AB's performance which didn't find any takers at all.

The supporting cast wasn't too bad. Jackie Shroff was good. Aditya Pancholi was better. Meenakshi Sheshadri does okay in a small role. Amrita Singh is average. Shashi Kapoor, well, cant say much about him.

Overall, a bad experiment and comes too late in its day. Story too hallow. Music below average. But some of the action scene are good to look forward to.

2 out 5

P.S If your not too sure about a Ramesh Sippy film just remember, a his films that begin with 'S' are the better lot. Seeta Aur Geeta, Sholay, Shaan, Shakti and Saagar :)
