Honest and dedicated Police Inspector Kumar Chandra Singh intercepts a bank robbery, and is in the process of arresting the bank robbers, when he himself becomes a suspect, and is apprehended with a suitcase containing some of the cash stolen from that bank. Kumar is stripped of his powers as a policeman; is arrested; tried in court; and sentenced to prison. As a result of his arrest, his mother dies of shock and disbelief. He is crippled in an accident, and must use the help of crutches to walk. When he is released from prison, he has only one goal in his life - to find the culprits responsible for his ruin, and humiliation. And for this he finds support in Kamini, Sonia, Sunita, and Shanker Dada, little knowing that one of these women was herself involved in getting his arrested. Written by rAjOo (

Action all the way
27 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This action packed movie has excellent performance by Rajesh Khanna and he fights his way with the gang of Amrish Puri. He is supported by 3 heroines but it is a Rajesh Khanna movie all the way. Shabna Azmi, Zeenat Aman and Parveen Babi are there, Mithunda is there too for some action sequences but all of them get overshadowed by the towering performance of Rajesh Khanna the super star. The music by R D Burman is above average and the direction is perfect. May be the length of the movie could have been reduced. Other wise it is a must see for all action movie lovers and they will see a different Rajesh Khanna in it. His role of a police officer later on dismissed and then getting physically unfit is worth a watch. It is available on DVD and one must spend time seeing this movie.
