Storyline

A young, dashing, and honest Police Inspector, who lives with Mr. and Mrs. Prasad, goes to a small town in Southern India to be introduced to a prospective bride, Koyal, the daughter of Gopinath. The Police Inspector falls head over heels in love with Koyal and wants to marry her. Koyal too falls in love with him. When the time comes for finalizing their marriage, a man comes forward alleging that the Police Inspector is not who he claims to be, but a man who is a bastard, born out of an unknown biological father. This leads to the postponement of the marriage, and the Inspector questioning Prasad and his wife as to who he really is and who his father was. Prasad starts recounting his mother, Gayetri's, life, the fact that she married an obnoxious man named Amavas - a man who was selected by a shady politician to lure the innocent public to vote for him - so that he can plunder the nation to no end.

Excellent - Mithun at his fiery best !!!
1 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

I just saw this film and thought i'll find out what people say about this film on IMDb. Guess what, NOTHING AT ALL!! Mithun in a totally convincing double role plays the main villain Amavas and the son Shakti who is an inspector. What can i say?, This film has everything action, romance, great storyline, great songs, the background score every time they show the villain Amavas (Mithun) is slightly chilling yet tense which totally adds to the quality of the film. And also the great Mithunda is in his best role ever for which he even won a film fare award 1995 (best villain). This is the only film directed by T.L.V Prasad that is actually brilliant (its also the only one to receive an award & some critical acclaim), he tried recreating the magic of Jallaad in his other 20+ films with Mithun but they weren't this good. Trust me, this double role is not like the one mithun played in the boring "Swarg Yahan Narak Yahan"(1991) which is a copy of Amitabh/Dilip kumar film "Shakti". People think that Mithuns films like Surakshaa, Wardaat, disco dancer and commando (amongst others) are his best. There are good but are in no way up to the standard of this film. This film is an action film too but not those brainless ones that mithun made in the 80s and 90s, This one actually has a brilliant storyline which touches on politics, childhood abandonment, hatred and ultimately revenge. BOTTOM LINE:- Watch this entertaining film and you'll enjoy it, GUARANTEED!!!.
