Storyline

Mr. Verma is the proud owner of a spacious bunglow named "Dharam Niwas". He is critical of his second son, Jaggan Verma (Kiran Kumar) due to his drinking habits, people of lose or no morals, and asks him to leave the house. Jaggan leaves the house, but swears that he will avenge this humiliation. Years later, Mr. Verma has passed away, and Jaggan has two sons, Raghunath (Paresh Rawal), and Rocky (Gulshan Grover); while Mr. Verma's elder son, Bharat (Rakesh Pandey) has two sons, Avinash (Shatrughan Sinha), an Assistant Commissioner of Police, and Vicky (Sanjay Dutt). This is when Jaggan's plan comes into being, and he has Avinash framed and sent to prison for 14 years. After 14 years have passed, Avinash returns home to find that his brother is now working with Raghunath, who next plan is to kill Avinash at the hands of none other than Vicky.

Awesome Movie
12 May 2012 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Sanjay Dutt was in a lean phase after Khatarnaak(1990) and he acted in 6-7 films that flopped. Adharm came around 1992 which was a bumper hit and proved to be a decent comeback for Sanjay Dutt. The film mainly focused on enemity between the good and the bad which is typical yet the story is narrated in a way with ups and downs that the audience will prefer it instantly. The enemies are all in one family where Mr Verma has 2 sons Jagganath and Avinash. Jagganath is the main villain and he is thrown out of the house by Mr Verma after he comes to know how evil Jagganath is. Jagganath swears to avenge his humiliation and will take his revenge. After Mr.Vermas death, Avinash takes responsibility of Dharam Nivas the home Mr Verma created with love and affection, the bunglow. Avinash is falsely trapped in a crime he didn't commit and sent to prison for 14 years. Avinash tells his wife and younger brother Vicky to go away and tell Vicky that his elder brother is dead. As time passes, Vicky and his punjabi Makhan Singh uncle and his mom live in Makhan's house. As time passes, Vicky grows up and after some boring yet funny comedy Vicky comes to know that his brother is alive and who the actual culprits are. Vicky starts working for Jagganath's son Raghunath and at the climax Vicky frames the villains and kills them in some awesome 90s style action seqences. The movie isn't bad at all and it's got a good story. Everyone has acted well especially Shatrugan Sinha and Sanjay Dutt. Shabana Azmi and Anita Raaj do a damn good job though their funny portions bore at times. Songs are average though Tuna Tuna became a superhit and it is an epic song the dance that Shakti and Sanjay perform are silly yet extremely funny. In general, Adharm is a hit movie and awesome in my opinion, a must watch.
