Superindent of Police, Raj Sinha, along with his wife, Suman, her mother, and his young son, Bunty, are coming over for a visit. Raghavan's intructions are not followed, and Raj comes to know that Raghavan is the head of this crime syndicate. Raghavan then decides to use his position and abducts Suman, her mother, and Bunty, and uses them as a shield against Raj. But Raj is bent upon capturing Raghavan by any means possible, and as a result, ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Poor combination of bits from different english movies
13 February 2001 | by (Louisville, KY, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is a standard hindi masala. Most of the scenes are poor remakes of popular sequences from movies like Timecop, Universal soldier etc. Except for Karishma Kapoor and good(not excellent) music there's nothing much in this movie. Raghuvaran, an excellent actor in south is wasted in this movie. Sunil Shetty did fairly a good job I'd give him an 'A' for his dancing.
