Storyline

Ranjit Verma (Raj Babbar) is the lawyer and legal counsel for a criminal named Veljibhai Soda (Paresh Rawal). Due to this association, Ranjit's brother, Ravi (Sanjay Dutt) also get involved with Veljibhai. Veljibhai trusts Ravi and asks him to intimidate Ustad Ali Mohammed (Aloknath), so that he can take possession of his property, but Ustad Ali is not intimidated by Ravi or by Veljibhai, his men, and a corrupt police inspector (Avtar Gill) and refuses to let go of this property. Ravi feels sympathy for Ustad Ali and becomes his follower. This angers Velji, and Ranjit as well, and they try to talk to Ravi, but to no avail. Veljibhai then takes matters into his own hands and must not only get rid of Ustad Ali, but also Ravi, and Ranjit as well. Will Veljibhai succeed? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Super Hit !!!!
20 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film i thought was a total love story when i saw a DVD cover of it so when i asked for the DVD it had a 18 cert and Sanjay Dutt with blood.I saw the film on a Saturday night between 12am-1am and the film was brilliant all it is the credits are coming and the Sanjay Dutt is walking on the streets with blood and he stars counting the minutes hes going to die.The film did well at the box office and also became a super hit but the film today in not recognised for the people because some people always talk about Sanjay Dutts all time hits?As the performers go of course Sanjay Dutt does a killer once again,the rest of the cast like Raj Babbar,Anupam Kher,Amrita Singh,Alok Nath,Avtar Gill and last but not least Paresh Rawal was a scene stealer.
