Storyline

Advocate Anand Saxena lives in a small apartment with his wife, Kavita, who came from a wealthy family, and their young son. They live in a crime-prone area as Anand cannot afford to live in a better locality, due to his honesty and integrity. Almost daily they are mocked at, made fun of, and even have their motor-cycle burned at the hands of the goonda elements, led by Captain Dada, who owes allegiance to criminal don, Uncle Kalra. Then Captain Dada meets and falls in love with Anshu Mehra, and introduces himself as Vijay. He changes his character to impress Anshu, and even befriends Kavita. He takes Anshu to meet Kavita, and that's when Anand rips off the mask of respectability from Captain's face, with Anshu having her heart broken, and refusing to have anything to do with him again. He manages to convince Anshu that he is a changed person and she gets him to promise to give up all criminal activity, which he does. Uncle Kalra, however, does not see it his way, and asks his men to ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Akshaye's bad days
10 March 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Akshaye Khanna is an actor with talent but sadly his career had lot of bumpy jerks, his debut was a flop, he got praise in BORDER but then he signed any film, he gave a series of flops. LAAWARIS 1999 was another. The film is similar to Yash Chopra's Mashaal(1984) however it's handling is weak. There are some good scenes but the film is very predictable and gets too melodramatic at many places

Direction is bad Music is decent, Aa Kahi stands out rest are okay

Akshaye Khanna with receeding hairline tries too hard, does impress as an actor but his height and physique works against him, Manisha Koirala is decent, Jackie Shroff and Dimple leave a mark Govind Namdeo is as usual, Parmeet Sethi is as usual rest are okay
