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)

pales front of VAASTAV
23 May 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

VAASTAV was a great gangster film however this film pales infront of it and comes across as a routine gangster film

The film has too many flashbacks which distracts the viewer The lives of Shivaji and Reema after Sanju's death is well handled and also the scenes till Inder Kumar is murdered

Then Sanju becomes a gangster and the film begins to drop The storytelling isn't as strong as Vaastav

Barring some scenes between Shilpa-Sanju, and the scenes till their marriage The emotional quotient is weak compared to VAASTAV which had great scenes between Sanju and Reema Here the emphasis is more on the mind games and shooting which is done to death

The characters too don't come strongly and the film ends up just being another routine gangster film There are some well shot scenes like Sachin Khedekar being shot or Resham Seth's husband being shot

The climax too is weak front of VAASTAV

Direction by Mahesh is routine, nothing like VAASTAV Music is bad Action is too much and there is too much blood spill Sanjay Dutt plays his part well, he plays a helpless husband, a moneythirsty husband very well and though he has played many gangster roles he does a great job Though not as memorable as Raghu, he is still great Shilpa Shetty is great too Sharad Kapoor is okay in his part Sachin Khedekar doesn't look a gangster but is decent Shakti Kapoor, Anup Soni and the rest goons are okay Gulshan Grover is average Reema Lagoo is awful here Shivaji Satham is okay, Namrata is very good
