While in Mauritius, Neha meets and falls in love with a young man named Vicky, and they have a quiet wedding ceremony.

Good Performances, Average Storyline and Direction
3 June 2000 | by (Maryland, U.S) – See all my reviews

Storyline: Neha (Manisha Koirala), who lives with her grand-father and young sister, lands a job as an Air-hostess in an international Airline and comes to Mumbai. She stays with her friend Ritu who is engaged to a police inspector (Sharad Kapoor). However, when returning from Ritu's engagement party, Neha witnesses the murder of a senior police officer by a Mafia Don's son Parmeet. In order to silence Neha, the Don hires a dangerous killer Babu (Sunjay Dutt), who unwittingly falls in love with her. How Babu prevents Neha from naming the accused and how the truth finally triumphs forms the rest of the story. Performances: Sanjay Dutt has really metamorphosed into one of the best actors of the country, not to mention his phenomenal screen presence. The role of the action hero suits him to the T. Manisha Koirala too stands out, especially in the emotional scenes. Sharad Kapoor impresses. The story is racy and keeps you on the edge of the seat. However, too much violence could be rejected by a part of the audience.

Overall Director Sanjay Gupta again shows his competence as a director. His use of close-ups is very effective at places. Sanjay Gupta is let down by his own story and screenplay.
