Storyline

After witnessing the sudden death of a woman, who was unable to afford hospital treatment, Dr. Ajay Kumar cancels his immigration to America and instead sets out to build a hospital that will cater to people who cannot afford treatment. Soon a hospital is built and is named "Amma People's Hospital". This attracts everyone's attention, and he becomes popular, especially with two women, Shweta and Sub-Inspector Ramya, and decides to marry Shweta. Shortly after Shweta gets pregnant, Ramya gets a distress call from her, claiming that she is being attacked by "Ajay". The police arrive to find her dead body and arrest Ajay for murder. Ajay's motive for killing her was monetary, as she is a wealthy heiress, and he is convicted and sentenced to death. While being transported to prison, the police van meets with an accident and Ajay escapes. With the police hot on his tail, he secretly meets with Ramya and tells her that he did not kill Shweta, and wants her help to catch the real killer. Will... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

ramyah!!! criminaly good
29 August 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

One of the best copies bolluwood has made even with nagarjuna in it and even if directed by Bhatt. This movie is ïnspired"by The Fugitive"(like most Bhatt movies this is a copy). Nagarjuna is Harrisson Ford who is framed for the murder of his wife (Manisha Koirala). because this movie has to be approx. 3 hrs, the love story of how Nags and Manisha met and fell in love is also woven in the film. But since it is Manisha Koirala and the flashback has the sexy Ramyah Kishnan also in it, it is good. By the way Ramyah is a cop on the trail of Harrissson, oops, nagarjuna who was once in love with him but sacrificed her love for her friend Manisha. I know it sounds crappy but the film isactually good. Gulshan Grover is also in it. If i am not mistaken than Ajit (Loin) is also in the movie in the Jeroen Krabbe role.
