Storyline

Omnipresent Bollywood acting dynamo Sunny Deol stars as Deva, the son of an honest lawyer (Anupam Kher) who lives with his brother, Aakash (Sachin Khedekar), and his beloved sister, Guddi (Richa Behl). Imprisoned after a man touches Guddi and sets off his violent, jealous rage, Deva falls into a life of crime, quickly rising to the top of the city's criminal underworld--much to the chagrin of the other crime bosses, who plot his murder. Their attempt to frame him for the murder of an important Minister doesn't go as planned, and Deva suddenly finds himself on the run, with the minister as a hostage, and his brother and sister murdered.

Awesome action movie; One of the best action movies ever!
24 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ziddi is definitely one of Sunny Deol's best action movies ever! It is also one of the ultimate action movies of Bollywood. Sunny shines with a brilliant performance (one of his best ever). The stubbornness against baddies, raw energy and emotion, tons of raw action, and revenge theme with twists. Only Sunny Deol could pull this one off as the explosive action hero with the Dharmendra Power. This is easily one of Sunny Deol's best performances! Personally, this is my all-time favorite Sunny Deol action movie of the 90's. This nonstop action bonanza was a runaway hit, thanks to Sunny Deol, who is just brilliant in all action scenes, which are explosive! Everyone else did well, but the movie belongs to Sunny Deol. The Guddu-Sunny team has made other decent films like Salaakhen in '98 and Shaheed and Jaal in '02 and Big Brother in '07, but Ziddi remains their best film to date. Recommended for Hindi action movie buffs. This movie is just terrific, and the best thing about it is its repeat value; you could watch this umpteen times and still NOT get bored with it! The action scenes are some of the best ever, and I would definitely give this one a 15/10! Ziddi definitely matches up well to Ghayal (1990).
