Gayetri lives with two close male friends, who she considers her brothers by the names of Veeru and Dheeru, who are small-time thieves, and con men, and are known to the local police. When Gayetri meets and falls in love with Police Inspector Arjun Thanghe, the duo are delighted and arrange her marriage with great pomp and ceremony. Arjun is then assigned duties to a distant village, which is facing oppression at the hands of Raja Jaichand, who refuses to accept the Indian Government nor even acknowledge it, and rules the region like a dictator. Arjun attempts to set things right, but is killed in the process, and Gayetri loses her mind. Gayetri does find her way to contact her brothers, and is horrified to find them in the employ of the person who has killed her husband, none other than Jaichand. Written by rAjOo (

The Most Amazing :So Bad Its Good" Movie
24 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

OMFG!!! Was this the most amazing movie I had ever seen? HELL YES! Unbelievable action (literally), out of this world characters (literally), characters by the name of Rasbhari, Inspector Arjun Tange and my favourite bad-man off all time - Raja Jaichand (Sadashiv Amrapurkar), this is one of the best to come off Bollywood. It stays a classic after so many years.

The story is quite simple - Veeru and Dheeru's (Dharmendra and Vinod Khanna) "mu boli" sister (read good friend that does not have sex with them) is married off to Inspector Tange (Rajnikanth) after some blood curdling comic scenes. Inspector Tange is posted in a village who has a ruler by the name of Raja Jaichand. So Inspector Tange is killed (surpirse!!) as are many other children (Thank you, Raja Jaichand) and Veeru/Dheeru extract revenge.

I am tired of writing this.. I have to watch this movie once more, more than anything else, to watch Raja Jaichand's Swan Car (that's right folks - it exists...). Nuff said - go watch the movie now...
