I still fail to understand what this was all about, but I totally regret having watched Maidan-E-Jung. The film is highly melodramatic, the proceedings, the dialogues and the characters are very theatrical and overdone, and above all, the story itself does not make any sense. The film presents really crude and fairy tale villains who do not have the slightest chance to exist in reality. The casting is really tactless. Dharmendra is cast in a role of a young man when he's already 60, and Karisma plays his sister while she could well be his daughter, if not granddaughter. Akshay Kumar is the ordinary guy who sings songs for his beloved and is there to fight for her whenever necessary. The film's only saving grace is the music, namely one song called "Shaam Dhal Rahi" which is really beautiful. Other than that, I highly recommend anyone to avoid this movie at any cost. This is a terrible B-grade movie which offers zero substance and zero entertainment.
