Good multi starer movie
31 March 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Believe me its a very good movie.Every country is only as good as the people living in it. B.R Chopra's Awam is the story of people who are willing to lay down their lives to fight any danger for their country. Captain Amar (Rajesh Khanna), the son of a freedom fighter is posted to Delhi. He is employed as the P.A. of Jagrattan (Om Shivpuri), the minister of Defence Purchases on the recommendation of Mohanlal (Shafi Inamdar), his father's friend.Mohanlal opens his home to Amar and there it is he meets Sushma (Poonam Dhillon) and falls in love with her. On meeting Colonel Zaidi (Nana Patekar) Amar learns that his posting was a front for him to uncover a spy ring that was endangering the Country. While Amar gets too close for comfort, the spy ring kills Jagrattan, who leaves a vital clue behind. Now, Amar has to peel through layers of deceit to unmask the real traitors and stop them before they destroy his beloved country. Smita Patil and Raj Babbar are also there in this multi-starer.
