Storyline

After being critically wounded and losing his left arm, Captain Jaswant Kumar is discharged from the Indian army and goes to live with Journalist A.V. Razdan in Shanti Nagar, Bombay. Ironically, Shanti Nagar is far from peaceful as it is ruled by extortionists like Peter Gonsalves and Jaichand Khurana who work for underworld don, Taneja. Jaswant and a local taxi-driver, Raju Varma, decide to put up a fight and attempt to drive the goons away - with considerable success much to the chagrin of Taneja, who hires a killer named Raaka to do away with them. Instead they end up befriending Raaka and join forces against Taneja himself. But Jaswant and Raju will soon find out that Raaka never befriends anyone and always disposes off his enemies when they end up getting arrested for smuggling and are sentenced to two years in prison - leaving Taneja and his men to carry on with their nefarious activities.

Entertaining movie
16 September 2007 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Zahreelay is a bollywood masala movie with lots of entertainment. It has a multi starrer cast of Jeetendra, Sanjay Dutt and Chunkey Pandey. Jeetendra gives a decent performance as a crippled retired officer. Chunkey Pandey is the taxi driver who tends to overact in his comedy. Sanjay Dutt is brilliant as usual as the killer who turns good, then bad and good. Juhi Chawla was the 90s sex symbol and she does OK in this film. Bhanupriya is a south Indian actress who is beautiful for her age. A simple storyline set in a town where gangs like to collect protection money. Until Jeetendra arrives and decides to change things around. This film is a great fun film to see.
