Long time ago his elder brother was killed by terrorists which caused him to quit his medical studies and join Indian Police Service. He is a great admirer of Pakistan-based ghazal singer Gulfam Hassan. During one of Hassan's concerts, they meet for the first time and become great friends. Meanwhile, Ajay's investigation into the Pakistan-supported cross-border terrorism takes him to Rajasthan and reveals an unsettling truth about someone close to his heart. Written by Soumitra

Trivia

In 1998, a right-wing political party in India had prevented famous Pakistani Ghazal singer Ghulam Ali from performing in Mumbai. Ghulam Ali is much loved on both sides of the border, and continues to have concerts in many cities of India. In a twisted echo of this incident, Naseeruddin Shah plays a Pakistani Ghazal singer who turns out to be a terrorist in this movie. See more »

Crisp Script, Cracking Movie!
14 August 2000 | by (Columbus, OH) – See all my reviews

Who said Indians cannot make action movies. "Sarfarosh" can be compared to any of the leading hollywood actioners. Aamir Khan is too tough to look sweet in this movie. His commitment to perfection can be seen in the way he carried the movie on his shoulders. The director John too did a great job. Though I feel Naseerudin Shah's role could have got more meat as his potential wasn't tapped complete. Music too is very good. Sonali should start looking serious than trying to look cute, as she is no longer a new comer. A solid movie with sharp dialogues and a crisp script.
