Storyline

Kandivli-based Sachidanand Agnihotri is a honest school-teacher, who has always faced problems due to his honesty, first with Poornima School; then in a Government school, and now he has come forward to testify against the sexual assault and murder of a young woman from Worli. 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. Then the Police, headed by a corrupt Assistant Commissioner of Police, Kamble, attempt to intimidate Sachidanand and follow him everywhere on the pretext of protecting him. Sachidanand is literally driven out of his mind, and on the day of the testimony, Nagesh's lawyer, Ashok Pradhan, confuses him to such an extent that Sachidanand kills himself. Vishal, who is being held in prison for assaulting several policemen, breaks out, ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Put This Movie Behind Bars And Leave It There
5 September 2008 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

To be honest, I had watched this film only for Raveena Tandon and Manisha Koirala's item number. Raveena Tandon is a great actress but in Salaakhen she barely has a role other than her appearance in the song sequences. She's there for eye candy and is definitely sizzling on screen. I also enjoyed Manisha's item number. It's not a great song but I think Koirala pulled it off well. The other good thing about 'Salaakhen' is the songs. They might be of an acquired taste but they appeal to me where beat is concerned and it's quite an eclectic soundtrack. Guddu Dhanoa has been known to make bad cinema and 'Salaakhen' is no exception. It's actually Anupam Kher who's the main lead because most of the film revolves around his character. Sunny Deol is just there to be the tough son and avenge his death. Of course, the story is the typical, old man fighting the corrupt system and he ends up committing suicide because the system 'gets' to him and thus the son avenges his death and goes to jail. Dhanoa thought he could repeat the success of 'Ziddi' if he brought back the same team but obviously that hasn't happened. There is very little that stands out about this movie and I have already mentioned them.
