Storyline

Unemployed and branded a trouble-maker, Jaikishan lives a poor lifestyle in a slum-area called Asha Colony, very near Andher's Lokhandwala Complex along with his sister, Seema; mom and dad. He comes to the rescue of a homeless orphan, Mili, who suffers from a deep inferiority complex, and permits her to live with his family. Brutally outspoken, he believes that India should be awarded unlimited gold medals for corruption at all levels, fully aware that these beliefs portray him as a 'revolutionary', and prevent him from securing any gainful employment. His life will be turned upside down when he refuses to go along with the plans of the Khan family - consisting of builder, Majid; his goon brother, Farid, and their seemingly benevolent father, Jahangir. His family will also be traumatized after the Police arrest him for the alleged broad-daylight murder of Farid. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

The best of Jackie Shroff
18 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

This movie portrays the problems of Mumbai lower class due to the nexus of criminal gangs and the fight against them by an angry young man Jackie Shroff. Though movie is typical for a one man fight against corruption similar to the Amitabh Bachhan movies and strongly resembles Arjun by Sunny Deol; still movie receives credit for strong performances by Kader Khan, Nana Patekar and the silent yet powerful acting of Jackie Shroff. The real-estate builders want to wipe off the slums in Mumbai and make five star hotels for fast profit. Jackie Shroff is struggling for a job and also pressurized by his family problems. While Nana Patekar's gang is trying to isolate the slum, they get a head-on with Jackie and face repulsion. Nana's brother Mazhar Khan goes to beat Jackie but gets killed by him during a fight. Nana kills Jackie's father which ignited a fury to extinguish his evil empire. Though Kader Khan is actually the Don and father of Nana, he only uses his powers to give justice to the poor and not oppress them. He detests Nana's activities but is unable to stop him. He tries to persuade Jackie to forget the whole episode, but Jackie rejects and goes on his spree to destroy Nana. He places bombs in the illegal building constructions by Nana and eventually kills him. Dimple is ornamental as she was in Arjun, but looks graceful. Jackie was stunning and the movie also has a few good songs. Worth a watch.....
