A good Akshay kumar film!
11 July 2007 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

Inspector Ram Yadav (akshay kumar)is an honest policeman how have taken up on himself to eradicate injustice.In doing so he makes enemies namely appa rao (amrish puri) cause ram wants his brother Janardan (Mohnish Bahl) to be arrest for all the bad things he does but he fails to do so.Finally he gets a tip off that he is leaving the country in througth airport in a mask and he is able to at least shoot him on his leg while janardan escapes again but wounded.This makes appa rao rages with anger for ram and in answer to this he comes in his home and ties him up killing his sister in law and her baby in stomach with poison in front of him.(her husband has gone for a trip somewhere)thats make ram in a state of shock. When his brother comes to know about this he is devasticated and comes to appa rao to give him warning but on his way back he is also killed by appa rao orders.Ram discovers about this and then takes up revenge from them after losing everything.He is help by Dr khan (kader khan)and sonali Bendre who is also his love interest.

The story is good and akshay does his powerful acting.Sonali does a good role in he film adding humor along with a good music and background score.highly recommended.
