Storyline

Virendra Pratap Singh lives a wealthy, yet careless lifestyle in India. When his father passes away, he hopes to inherit the entire estate and wealth, but is unable to do so due to a stipulation in the will that he must join a military academy as per family traditions, and failure to do so may forfeit his claim to this inheritance. He reluctantly joins the National Defence Academy, expects to break every possible rule, and be discharged. His training officer is Major Jasbir Singh Rana, who takes it upon himself not to discharge Virendra under any circumstance, even when Virendra runs away twice. Then Virendra's plans change when he meets with and falls in love with Nisha, who lives a very wealthy lifestyle with her gangster brother, Shankar. Virendra decides to continue training so that he can be close to Nisha, however, Shankar has other plans for Nisha as he wants to get wed to fellow-gangster, Parshuram Bihari's son, Vicky. When Nisha openly declares her love for Virendra during ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Probably..... A usual and typical Bollywood stuff!
6 October 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

To start with, the film has nothing to offer new anything. A persistent rule breaker Veeru (Devgn), joins army according his father's will that he will inherit a huge amount of money, in this he falls in love with Nisha (Bendre... A usual romantic angle starts).

Now come to the parallel angle of this story, Major Rana (our own Bachchan) who decides to pull the strings of this uncontrollable horse (of course Devgn!) to avoid him to get discharged from army. But boss, a typical Bollywood film is not finished as villains are main stuff to increase the excitement. Shankar (Ashish Vidyarthi) a baddie and Nisha's bhaiyya, disapprove Veeru and Nisha's love, hatches a plan to get him handicapped and beaten up. But miraculously survives and walks like a dead Michael Jackson.

Maj Rana trains Veeru and makes him strong enough to fight with Shankar and win Nisha back. Phew!!!!! OK now coming back to performances, Ajay as a lazy-turned-strong guy has nothing to offer much except his acting where he handles action sequences with ease, Bachchan as his aide and guru delivers a dialogue packed performance, Bendre, Ashish and Mohan Joshi were good in their parts.

So, final verdict of the film, if you like to be relaxed and nothing to do this afternoon, sit back and watch this time pass treat.
