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>

Good film
6 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Andhon ke Shehron mein Aayina Bejhta hoon( I sell a mirror in a city of blind) this is one of the dialogues of YESHWANT(1997) which is so true

The film itself is quite unlike Hindi films, in those times of Yash Chopra's DIL TO PAAGAL HAI and other films where romance, comedy was required this film was considered dry

The film is a no-nonsense film, story may sound too simple but the direction is brilliant by newcomer director

The film doesn't have forced comedy(though some characters are sort of funny) the focus is entirely on the story

we have hardhitting characterization of a women which shows that women are strong unlike Madhuri of DIL TO PAAGAL HAI

The plot moves in a straightforward yet captivating fashion Except some forced songs the focus never shifts The film catches your attention throughout

Direction is superb Music is okay, the popular EK MACHCHAR is good

Amongst actors Nana often accused of being typecast, does his usual stuff but actually carries the film on his shoulders He conveys a lot through his eyes and powerful presence which people may ignore thinking it's repetitive Madhoo excels here especially in dramatics Sadly her career didn't go ahead The reject Atul Agnihotri is okay While late Shafi Inamdar(his last film) is good Amongst villains Mohan Joshi is typecast, Shivaji Satham is good
