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 ...

A Classic!
22 April 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Mahesh Bhatt's 'Sir' is amongst his finest films ever. The Performances are magnificent, The Screenplay is sharp & The Direction is just perfect. Need I Say More?

'Sir' tells the story of how a college teacher gets entangled in a brutal gang war.

'Sir' has strong merits, the narrative is highly superior & violent, as well. The Screenplay is sharp. Bhatt's Direction is just perfect. Music by Anu Malik is melodious.

Performance-Wise: Paresh Rawal is astounding. The versatile actor delivers a performance of a lifetime. To say that, he steals the show, would be an understatement. Gulshan Grover is another topper. He's incredible as the villain. Nasseruddin Shah is natural. Atul Agnihotri is very credible. Pooja Bhatt is remarkable. How one wishes if this talented performer had a longer career. Avtar Gill is in complete form.

On the whole, 'Sir' is a story worth watching.
