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.

Best action masala film
18 August 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

One of the most entertaining action thrillers in the history of bollywood. Watch it for some great bollywood masala stuff. Both Akshey and Sunil are fabulous in their roles. I don't think so any one would have done the role of Jindal better than Naseeruddin Shah. Some foot tapping music and gripping background score. The story never loses its grip, something different in bollywood. Rightly declared a great blockbuster, has a long lasting impression on you. Paresh Rawal, Raveena tandon are good in their roles. Razaa Muraad and Gulshan Grover fit in their shoes perfectly. The action scenes are quite great. Watch it again and again and again and again and again.I myself have watched it around 25 times.
