Storyline

This is an off-beat (by Indian film standards) story of a group of young men, who live in the same neighbourhood, and hang around the streets, killing time and fighting rival street gangs. In their pointless lives come 2 women: a old lady and her young daughter (a teacher). The daughter is initially annoyed by the rude behaviour of the young loafers, but soon sees though their tough demeanour. What she discovers is well-intentioned youth, led astray by an apathetic and corrupt society. Written by ajmal hussain <ajji@nightmail.com>

Great Movie, Fabulous Direction and Excellent Acting.
1 March 2004 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie is winner in all fronts. A different storyline from the typical bollywood melodrama sets it apart from others.

This story is about four friends who are educated but unemployed and how they are dragged into doing wrong things. Then they are introduced to a family (mother and her daughter (manda) who helps these four friends to look at life from a different perspective.

After being with this family for some time the whole outlook and behavior of these four friends totally changes and they try to look at the life from a positive angle. At this time manda is raped by her boss and his friends. When the four friends get this news, they are shattered and now their only aim is to revenge the rape.

The storyline is simple, but told in a bold fashion. Acting from all those involved is good, especially Nana Patekar, he is just mind-boggling. This is the best offering from N. Chandra the director, who all directed super-hit film like Tezaab. He is convinced about the characters and that is shown in the movie.

So if you like to see something different, then this is the movie for you. Just don't miss it. 8 out of 10.
