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)

Should have been a Hit
13 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mahesh Bhatt's Criminal is a remake of The Fugitive with Nagarjuna playing Harrison Ford and Nassar playing Tommy Lee Jones.

The music is ordinary but Tum Mile by Kumar Sanu is the best.

Nagarjuna and Nassar handle their roles well.Manisha and Ramya are ordinary.Gulshan has no lines at all but still carries his role well.Ajit in his last movie does not disappoint at all.

one of Nag's Nine Hindi films which did not become a hit.One of his best performances after Shiva and Drohi

The movie was made in telugu at the same time with almost a same star cast

Watch this one you will love it
