The British Government admits to taking the priceless Kohinoor diamond from India, but agree to loan it for an exhibition to a multi-millionaire Vinay Kumar. Vinay arranges for top security of this diamond, but it does get stolen. The prime suspects are himself, as he was accused of stealing jewellry several years ago; Police Commissioner Surya Dev Singh, the very last person to have handled the diamond, and being the son of Prince Arjun, a jewel thief; Con-man Johnny, who has acquired a reputation of being a jewel thief; Jukaso, a gangster of international repute; and Chief Minister Neelkanth. With the Chief Minister and the Police Commissioner themselves suspects, no one really knows who the real criminal is, as the crime unfolds, only one of the above has the real diamond, and will not part with it under any circumstances.

Good Production value
25 May 2000 | by (new delhi,India) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the only big time sequels made in Bollywood. Though something happened to the script in the end, but nonetheless it was basically entertaining.The plot revolves how the diamond merchant (Dev Anand)returns in this movie as a big time merchant whose only ambition in life is to bring the Kohinoor ( Diamond) to India for exhibition. Now how the diamond comes and gets stolen and who is the theif is what the ploot is about. The only misconception people had about this movie was that this was a Dev Anand's production, but in fact it was after nearly 15 years that he worked for a Production house outside rather than his own. The producer for this movie was T.P.Aggarwal.
