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

Akayla was one of the movie Amitabh Bachchann did before his retirement to America in the early 1990s.The movie brought two of the greatest pairing in Indian cinema Shashi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchann after a very long time.The film also stars Amrita Singh, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Aditya Panscholi and not to forget Kawanljeet in crucial roles.Akayla is the story of a hard hitting cop Inspector Vijay (Amitabh B).He is a loner in real life and smart,witty an intelligent when his work is concerned.In a supermarket robbery he catches the culprit (Keith Stevenson) whose identity couldn't get proved in the Indian law court.From there on the culprit and Inspector become enemies as the story unfolds.The villain the culprit is the villain of the movie whom Vijay has to finish and bring justice to the society.Akayla is the story of how a smart Inspector brings justice with the help of his friends and family.The movie is one of the best movies of Amitabh Bachchann if not the best.Also it is written by Salim Khan who once penned the 'angry young man' image of Amitabh Bachchann in the 1970s.8 out of 10
