Storyline

This is the story of the Shivalkar family. Stigmatized as a family of criminals, thugs, and gangleaders, each generation is subjected to the same oppression and the vicious circles created partly by themselves, and by the surrounding communities, including the police, politicians, and people in general. These are the circumstances under which Rohit Shivalkar (Sanjay Dutt) grows up under. Nicknamed "Boxer Bhai" by his friends as he excelled in boxing in his college days, Rohit grows up to be perhaps the most powerful of the Shivlkars. His reach is beyong the state's chief ministers, the police commissioners, and an election cannot take place before a deal is made with Boxer Bhai. Rohit has weaknesses, he cannot stand any woman being called a prostitute, because his mom, Sonu (Namrata Shirodkar) was one; and he has fallen hard for a married woman, Gauri (Shilpa Shetty), who is enduring a marriage with a phsycially abusive spouse. Rohit snatches her out of this abusive relationshisp and ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Pretty OK
23 June 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This film is pretty good for a sequel...but I feel Vaastav was a better film.

Following "Vaastav", Hathyar traces the story of slain Raghu's family. Ostracized by society because of Raghu's deeds, his family has a tough time making both ends meet but they manage to live on. Soon Raghu's son Rohit follows his father's footsteps, kicking the 'fracture haddi' gang guys and thrashing and killing all his enemies and those who disobey him, but alas, these "days of glory" may not last long.

Direction is good, all actors have acted well, music is unremarkable, unlike VAastav that had excellent soundtrack.

Worth a watch. I personally feel the end of the film could've been better.
