Storyline

Colonel Krishnakant Puri and his colleagues are all court-Marshall from the Indian army because they all are accused of aborting mission 'China-Gate'. 17 years later a young woman, Sandhya watch helplessly as a notorious bandit, Jageera crush her Forest Officer father, Sundar Rajan to death; this then forces her to approach Puri and his colleagues for assistance in liberating her village, Devdurg from the terror of Jageera. She lodges the battalion stay in an abandoned house in the village and provide them with all the necessary arms, ammunitions and materials needed to combat Jageera and they start there preparations and training for the mission; while at the same time their efforts are frustrated by the village police headed by the corrupt police inspector, Barot but they do manage to handle him. Then several attacks are launch on Devdurg by Jageera and his gang forcing Puri and his men to retaliate by the exchange of gun-battle which leaves many causalities on both sides.

Overlong but well-acted homage to 'Sholay'
12 February 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This film works as an overlong homage to 'Sholay'. Here a bunch of squabbling, overweight and dishonored former army men fight to capture a notorious bandit and reclaim their pride. Om Puri and Danny Denzongappa are good but Amrish Puri steals the show. The sparks between Amrish and Naseer are worth watching. Urmila has an item number and it's a foot-tapping one! The villain is suitably hammy, though not very tough. The film does tend to drag and could have been at least a half hour shorter. Still, it's watchable for the most part at least on television/DVD.

Overall 6/10
