A brave Indian policeman named Raj beats up and then arrests a Muslim terrorist by the name of Khan. This gets him promoted, and he is congratulated by none other than his father-in-law, who is also a very high ranking policeman. Then all of a sudden, Raj finds out that many policemen would like to see Khan go free. He discusses this issue with his father-in-law, and to his surprise, does not find any support from him.

The Police suspect Raj of killing him, they begin the process of arresting him, he runs away, while Khan is all set to get freed to do whatever he likes. Written by Calista

Great action movie!
24 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Indian is truly one of Sunny Deol's best action movies ever, as he shows more patriotism again, but here, he is a tough and clever cop (modern version of Chandrashekhar Azad). He nabs a terrorist, figures out the treacherous games, and one by one, he finishes the baddies. This movie is NOT at all anti-Pak as some believe as they did NOT understand the real essence of the film. However, the film exploits corruption in India itself in police, rich people, etc. who would stoop down so low to be traitors for money by helping terrorists. If more Indian cops were like Rajshekhar Azad (Sunny Deol), then corruption would be so much less. Our Jat hero goes beyond limits to save the country from deadly attacks and is honored by all good. Watch this film with an open mind, and you will like it. This is another personal favorite of mine, and even today, I still love this action movie. Sunny, you rock! Hindustan Zindabad! Jai Hind! Maa Tujhe Salaam! I loved the scene where he saves his 4 sidekicks from the baddies by bashing so many goons at once and also when he roars about being Indian after killing the terrorist. 15/10!
