Storyline

Jailer Lankeshwar is suspected of corruption and illegal weapons trading. He uses some of the jailed convicts to act as hit men for a fee, by allowing them to leave the jail, carry out their job, and then be back with a perfect alibi. When ACP Amar Agnihotri gets to know, he proposes to the Minister to permit a police inspector to pose as a convict to gain access into a prison to investigate its warden. Arjun Singh, a dashing and upright police officer is selected for the job. Amar and his superiors contrive a plan wherein Arjun will shoot Amar down with a blank bullet, and then abscond. This goes according to plan, and Arjun is apprehended and held for court. He pleads guilty, and is sentenced to Lankeshwar's jail. While in jail, Arjun finds out that Amar has been killed, and he has become a convict for real. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Vinashak is a bollywood action thriller. As a Sunil Shetty starrer, Vinashak goes beyond the expectations of those who are prejudiced towards him,I must say. The film,in general is about an honest cop's battle against the corrupt law,after losing his near and dear ones in fighting the wicked.This may sound similar to many films,but this one has good dialogs and excellent action sequences unlike the fake ones in the other films,and the plot is good. Music is average,choreography unremarkable. Sunil Shetty and Om Puri act their roles well,Danny is OK as the villain. You can watch this.It's not a waste of time.But don't be prejudiced. Another remarkable film of Sunil Shetty that I would recommend is Red Alert:The war within
