Storyline

Special Branch Inspector Krishna (Salim Ghouse) has been assigned the task of apprehending Raghav (Nagarjuna), a notorious hitman, in the employ of J.P. Sethi (Danny Denzongpa), which he accepts. The Mayor (Akash Khurana) has taken a special interest in this case, and has issued intructions to Krishna, authorizing him to deal with this matter fully. A few days later, the Mayor is assasinated. When pressure mounts on J.P. Sethi to turn in Raghav, he instead pays another man to confess for the assasination, thus leading to the closure of this file. But Krishna is not convinced, and is sure that Raghav is behind the Mayor's assasination. Krishna has a sister, Bhavana (Urmilla Matondkar), who is in love with Shekhar. When Krishna finds out about this, he asks Bhavana to stop seeing Shekhar, as Shekhar is another alias for the cold-hearted killer Raghav. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

brilliant in each n every dept
1 July 2006 | by (Baltimore, US) – See all my reviews

the two reasons to watch this flick are rgv, and nag. rgv's brilliant direction and nag's superb performance are the heart and soul of this movie. nag hardly has any dialogs. most of his performance comes from his facial expressions and body language. ramu failed in this venture as this movie did not appeal to the people.

this is one of the best movies from rgv. also, this is one of the best movies in nag's career(in my view , actually, the only best movie of nag's).

i mostly liked this because of it's content. i still enjoy watching this movie as it has strong human emotions that have ever been captured on celluloid. IT'S A RAW FILM.

PS: did i mention that this was the first rgv movie in which the lead character is a out-and-out gangster(of course, Shiva too has gangster theme but the hero was a student-turned-gangster)
