Storyline

Tough policier about a straight, but maverick cop who does not believe in bending over, no matter what. He encourages his wife to become a lawyer and tutors her at home, while helping with the chores, and she does achieve that goal. Somewhat like an Indian version of 'Dirty Harry', this is virtually a one-man show by Nana Patekar. Written by ajmal hussain <ajji@nightmail.com>

Nana Patekar In And As The SUPERCOP: Yeshwant.
7 April 2012 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

An orphan by birth birth, Yeshwant(Nana Patekar) fought hard to be a narcotics undercover officer. He married an orphan girl (Madhoo) like himself and schooled her into becoming a deputy collector. Yeshwant is a man who refuses to break his principles: absolute honesty, fighting for and upholding truth and justice and helping those he loves.

Enter drug peddler Salim Shaikh (Mohan Joshi). Yeshwant once apprehended him but he got free on bail paid for by a corrupt politician. Now Salim plans to get rid of Yeshwant once and for all...

If you are a die-hard Nana Patekar fan (Like Me!!!), then BUY this film for your DVD collection. His acting in this film is nothing short of PHENOMENAL. Actors Shafi Inamdar, Mohan Joshi, Madhoo and Atul Agnihotri put in decent performances. This is an action packed film coupled with solid emotional drama.

There is a song Ek Chhota Sa Macchar Aadmi Ko Hijra Banadeta Hai! sung by Nana Patekar which has become immensely popular.
