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 Aataa Hai!!"
4 January 2008 | by (The Back of Beyond, in the Void behind Reality) – See all my reviews

That song alone makes this movie about 8 out of 10. This is an excellent action movie that I've seen at least 20 times. The cast is one of the reasons why the film is so good. The good guys are all suited perfectly for their roles while the bad guys are the same way. The 3 main bad guys and their hired helping hand, Ashghar, are a batch of many types. They form a potent team that is hard to beat. The good guys are slightly fewer in number but able to make up for it by being formidable themselves. The songs are excellent throughout, the music is great, and the action is fast yet the plot relaxes here and there to make the movie go at a good pace. I highly suggest this movie to anyone who likes Indian action films. The movie "Om" was very good too and Vinashak is in that flavour!!!
