Storyline

Journalist Roma Singh is the daughter of a jailer. While taking a tour of the jail, she is molested by some of the inmates, and an inmate, Vishal Agnihotri comes to her assistance. She finds out that Vishal is in for four homicides, and decides to investigate further. She finds out, with the help of the owner of her publications, Jindal that Vishal was compelled to take the law in his own hands when the courts failed to punish the assailants of his sister and sweetheart. Soon, Vishal is released from prison, and begins to work for Jindal. It is then that he realizes that he has just walked from a walled prison, to an open prison, as the truth behind his release slowly but surely starts to dawn on him.

great direction in whole film industry
29 June 2014 | by (india) – See all my reviews

awesome movie by rajiv mehra. great direction in whole film industry. i can't believe it taking such a long star cast could make such a good movie.The film is especially remembered for its music which became chartbusters in that year. The popularity of the song "Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast", which was picturised on Raveena Tandon led to her being nicknamed "The mast mast girl".(English: Pawn) is a 1994 Indian action thriller film directed by Rajiv Rai starring Sunil Shetty, Naseeruddin Shah, Akshay Kumar and Raveena Tandon in the lead roles while Paresh Rawal, Gulshan Grover, Raza Murad and Sadashiv Amrapurkar and Kulbhushan Kharbanda played supporting roles. The film was released on 1 July 1994. The film went on to become the second highest grossing Indian film of 1994 and earned a Blockbuster status.[1][2] The film got 9 Filmfare nominations in 1995. It was the first time where the trio of Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal worked together.action from drama comedy songs everything in this picture. there is no shortage in this picture.it is a complete entertainment package.maybe now got to see a picture like this again.as my opinion i give to 10out of 10.
