Storyline

Bombay-based Professor Amar Verma lives a middle-class lifestyle with his wife, Shobha, and 6 year old son, Kunal. When a gang-war breaks out between Veljibhai and Chhapan Tikle alias Jimmy, a number of innocent bystanders fall victim, one of whom is Kunal. This devastates the Verma family, with Shobha walking out on Amar, who devotes his life to his students. When he finds out one of his students has a stammering problem, he decides to help her, and finds out that she is the only child of gangster Veljibhai. He meets with Veljibhai, discusses the gang-war scenario, then meets with Chhapan Tikle and gets the gangster to agree on a truce so that he can take Pooja and the rest of the students on a field trip to Bangalore. Amar will soon find out that neither Veljibhai nor Chhapan Tikle have any intention of keeping any truce - and he may well have jeopardized his, Pooja's, as well as the lives of his students - as the two gangs set out to kill each other - and anyone else who gets in ...

Trivia

Mahesh Bhatt had planned his 1993 gangster drama, Sir, with Sadashiv Amrapurkar playing the main baddie, Chhappan Tikli, and Gulshan Grover as his demented but dangerous younger brother, modeled on a character from The Godfather series. But just three days before the film was to roll, Sadashiv pointed out to Bhatt that in a crowd of 'serious' actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Paresh Rawal and him, a 'commercial' actor like Gulshan stood out and should be replaced. After the success of Sadak and his character Maharani, Sadashiv had begun to feel that Gulshan was not on par with the so-called talent quotient of the rest of the cast,Unaware of this, Gulshan had got himself clicked wearing his son's bermudas and came to Bhatt with the photographs wondering if he'd got the 'look' of his character right. He was told that he had been elevated in the cast and would be playing Chhappan Tikli. The younger mentally challenged brother was now turned into a woman's role and played by Sushmita Mukherjee, Sadashiv Amrapurkar was replaced due to his behavior. See more »

Good Music-Good Acting
20 February 2005 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Sir is a story about a professor who makes a shy personality into something lively. The role of professor is played by veteran Naseeruddin Shah and that shay personality is none other than Pooja Bhatt. In between this, the professor also tries to change the mind of two underworld dons, Velji Bhai and Jimmy but the attempt remains unsuccessful. Again Mahesh Bhatt (I love you) describing relationships and personalities and characters and so on, along with something very romantic by Anu Malik. That romantic thing is music. "Aaj Hum Ne Dil Ka Har Kissa", "Sun Sun Sun Barsaat Ki Dhun" and "Yeh Ujli Chaandni Jab Hasraton Ko", are worth listening. The story may look quite boring in the second half for the viewers. But for me, it was fair.
