Storyline

Sachidanand points an accusing finger at Nagesh, the son of prominent and influential Jaspal Rana. Sachidanand's family, which consists of his wife, Gayetri, and son, Vishal, attempt in vain to talk him out of testifying. The Police are forced to arrest Nagesh and hold him in a cell.

Copy of ELAAN
23 March 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Guddu Dhanoa had made ELAAN in 1994 with Akshay which had a similar story All the crimes towards Anupam are similar to that film

Strangely there it was done on Amrish Puri and here Amrish does it to Anupam

The film follows the beaten to death theme and is nothing great

The scenes between Anupam, Farida are nice especially her explosion to the cops

rest is the same

The climax suddenly reaches foreign locales during fight scenes, how come?

Direction is nothing great Music too is ordinary

Sunny Deol repeats his act, like Akshay in ELAAN he too has less to do and his act is the same every movie in otherwise Anupam is the true hero, he excels though he played a middle class man from he was 28 to date yet in this film he gets to portray a lot more and he excels Raveena does her usual bit Farida excels Amrish Puri has done such roles to death
