Special Officer Dev Malhotra is assigned the task of tracking the killers of India's top politician. The only lead he has is the dubious statement of a thief who overheard a conversation that some persons were going to kill the Prime Minister. While investigating, he rescues a dancer/singer, Tina, who is mistaken by his family (consisting of his father, Dr. Malhotra; mother Anjali, and sister, Kanchi) as his girlfriend. As he persists with this assignment he will soon not only be pitted against his very own biological parent - who now has two identities - as well as face distrust from his superiors.

Aakrosh: Cyclone of Anger was another action film of Shetty's from 1998. This film was a hit although not Shetty's first hit from 1998 which was Vinashak. This film is similar to Vinashak in one way. It has a good story just like Vinashak. The whole plot is about some terorist like villains who want to assassinate the Home Minister. This goes unsuccessful because of Officer Dev Malhotra who is always there to flop the attack from our villains. However, when Shetty tries to find the villain a sniper guy kills the bad police guy who is about to tell the truth to Sunil Shetty. The film moves to another part of India where Shetty meets his love and the heroine Shilpa Shetty who is also another secret agent like him. Now they team up and hunt down the villains. However, the main villain turns out to be none other than Dev's step dad who his mom divorced. How Dev stops his step dad and the other villains with the help of his love and the butt kicking secret agent Shilpa Shetty forms the rest of this action packed film. The film has a good story and the handling is good. The first half keeps you guessing who is the main person responsible for these attacks. How does he keep on killing all the people Shetty captures. The main problem with the film is the forced comedy by the constable Johny Lever which is boring and forces you to shift the focus. The ending is a bit too rushed due to the fact that Sunil shoots his step dad and the movie just ends. The ending could've been a bit better. However, the movie is damn good on the whole. The film could've been a bit better but it entertains and keeps you thinking. Overall, a decent movie from Shetty. These are the kind of films he needs. Not typical messiah of the poor films which is pretty typical for him. Most Shetty films lack a proper plot but these kind of films make him the actor he is. These films sheds him out of his Balwaan image where he hams up shouting at the villains when he gets tortured in prison. These kind of films mature the tough action hero image of Sunil Shetty. Keep it up Sunil!
