Storyline

Impressed with the dedication shown by Police Inspector Gautam, the Commissioner of Police assigns him to police a lawless town, which is over-run by criminals, and where no police officer has survived for more than a few days. Gautam accepts this assignment, and travels to this town. He finds the town is indeed over-run by criminals, and ruled over by arrogant and aristocratic Dharamdutt. When Dharamdutt comes to know about Gautam, he asks his personal hit-man to get rid of him. The personal hit-man is none other than Govinda - a man who has never been beaten by anyone.

Okay drama
8 January 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Director Subhash Ghai tried to make this film in a realistic manner with a dash of masala. Some good scenes and a very hummable song 'Ik rut aaye, ik rut jaaye...' Actors worked all right with a rather loud yet convincing performance by Shatrughan Sinha. Late Premnath was speaking his lines which very few can understand. He really looked old and sick. Only saving grace of this film is its location. A remote village that looks raw and beautiful.

See it if you are a Subhash Ghai or Shatrughan's fan and do not see it if you are a Shashi Kapoor fan.. ha..ha...

6 out of 10 will do.
