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

10 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Suneil Shetty kept doing nonsense action films in the 90's after BALWAAN(1992) but post 1994 he kept getting flops BORDER(1997) was a godsend as it was a blockbuster and won him rave reviews and also his work started improving

Still he kept doing action films where he needs to fight mainly

VINASHAK too falls in the bracket though it's a decent film The film however has a good plot but it's handling is typical

The film has the typical 90's situations like the honest cop is blamed and then how he takes revenge

The film has some good scenes and writing by RKS is better then his most films but still it isn't anything novel

Direction by Ravi Dewan is good in parts Music is okay

Suneil tries hard though his role is similar to his debut BALWAAN yet he has improved a lot, though he still had rough edges those days Raveena is as usual Amongst rest The villains Danny, Tinnu Anand,Mukesh Rishi,Alok Nath are all as usual while Mohan Joshi is adequate Harish Patel is okay, Shivaji Satham leaves a mark in a small role
