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)

Bhatt is the Criminal for making this...
18 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With Nagarjuna and Koirala in the lead, I was expecting a decent movie. This, unfortunately, was quite bad. Not surprisingly, it sank without a trace at the box office in 1995, despite the star-studded cast.

It's supposed to be a remake of the Fugitive, but did Bhatt even watch the original before supposedly "re-making" it? As with his other films, Bhatt takes a reasonably good story and uses his "magic" to destroy it.

The songs are interspersed at random places in the movie, and, as is usual with Bhatt films, there is always the unnecessary sexuality. Nagarjuna's acting skills are not quite up to the par, and he looks rather tired and old, even beyond whatever is required by his role.

The soundtrack still sounds pretty good, however, but is not quite good enough to redeem the movie.
