Storyline

Krishna Patil is a poor, unemployed, unsuccessful and short tempered youth who stays in a chawl with his father Ramakant and elder sister Mansi. He tries to secure a job in the police department but fails. One day he happens to meet Kavita Choudhary, a young, rich, beautiful, intelligent lawyer. He falls for her instantly and begins wooing her. Kavita, having recently lost her father, stays alone and feels lonely and depressed. There is a certain void in her life. She is looking for someone to share her loneliness and an unemployed Krishna suits her requirements perfectly. Hence she accepts him as her boyfriend despite his mediocre looks, poor family background, jobless status and lack of personal hygiene. Written by Yogesh Verma

Action packed hindi crime thriller
9 December 2001 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

I must say this is the most violent bollywood film I've seen. I have not watched many of them because our regional channel show these films on a Sunday night around 2 am. I could not sleep one sunday night. I started to watch Ghaath and I got hooked for the next 3 hours. It's about a young man whose hopes of becoming a policeman are crushed when he gets drawm into a fight with a police inspector. Very entertaining. Funny enough you always find a familar face who acted in English speaking film like Om Puri (East is East).
