Fortunately, before his arrest Shyam manages to hide the diamonds at a nearby construction site, intending to return for it as soon as he gets out of prison. Two years pass and Shyam's release date arrives. Returning to his ill-gotten gains, he is horrified to discover that what was once a building site is now a new police headquarters with his stolen diamonds forming part of the foundation. Shyam decides to create and play the role of Inspector Ram and soon becomes the favourite of ACP Ranbir Singh (Paresh Rawal) at the police station. But life is not that easy going for the imposter who quickly comes to the attention of the ever suspicious Inspector Pande (Om Puri). Amidst all this mayhem Ram actually finds time to romance Inspector Ranjita (Bipasha Basu). But he also plays the character of Shyam with Ranbir's daughter, Komal (Shilpa Shetty).

Copying Streak
4 March 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie is copied from the Hollywood production BLUE STREAK. I must say, it is a poor reproduction. The hero plays his part well but the introduction of two girls does hurt the film.

Om Puri is excellent as the suspecting cop as is Paresh Rawal as the unsuspecting commissioner. Shekhar Suman is useless as the friend of the hero. Actually this part has been "INSPIRED" from the legendary GolMaal.

Suman plays the hero's mother to the cops in order to protect him. The hero also invents a twin brother, a la GolMaal. But again this hardly puts any extra laughs.

Overall the movie is unbearable and I haven't been able to sit through it twice. I really still don't know how it ends. But it too must have been copied from somewhere.
