Rammohan lives a poor lifestyle in India along with his grandson, Avinash, the only child of his late son, Indermohan. Rammohan is disappointed with Avinash as he always seems to be getting into trouble and fisticuffs. Quite unknown to him, Avinash makes a living by wrestling. Then one day Rammohan finds out that Avinash has got into a fight with a gangster named Yeda Topi, who had complained to the Police, and as a result Avinash had been arrested, held in a cell, and beaten up Police Inspector Inamdar. Rammohan arranges for Avinash's bail, but warns him not to get into trouble again. Instead of coming home, Avinash disappears for several days, compelling Rammohan to file a missing persons' report. Rammohan does get re-united with his grandson - only to find out that Avinash is not wanted by the Police for the murder of Yeda Topi, but he has also been masquerading as Dr. Sunil Verma, and romancing Sunil's mentally unstable girlfriend, Neha Khurana.

Sunil Shetty's typical action film
12 June 2011 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Sunil Shetty was not a good actor till he got films like Anth, Gopi Kishen, Dilwale even flops like Takkar improved his acting but continued his flop streak. In his first films like Balwaan, he stood out like a sore thumb and only did the action with great energy, though the film was a hit, it didn't give him much. In my opinion, this actor does have many flops in his career, but it is in these flops, he builds his character, he builds his acting skills. He works hard and even if he doesn't succeed, he is one step closer to success always. Through his half a dozen flops, he has improved as an actor, he has shown his true skills, he has not provided absurd performances as he did in parts of his journey. He is one actor who succeeds even after failing.

Vishwasghaat is one such movie where Shetty gets to show his skills again but fails to succeed at the box office. Though the movie was a flop, he displayed his true core skills from raw breath taking action to brilliant drama. This movie is more of a thriller at the start but slowly slowly, it becomes a typical Sunil Shetty action fare like his 5 other flops from 1995 which just did nothing but drop Shetty's career. Though Shetty rebuilt himself in 1996 with the violent action hit Rakshak, he kept getting flops like Shastra and Ek Tha Raja. In 1997, Shetty revived his career with blockbuster war film Border and hit Bhai. Though nonsense action films like Judge Mujrim and Prithvi brought him down. Dhaal was a bad film though the concept of delivering a message was a good idea. Coming back to Vishwaaaghaat, this is truly forgotten film. Though the film has one good twist with Anumpam Kher being a dynamic character, it doesn't have much to offer. Sunil Shetty is wasted in a role he has played a million times. Yes he does his part, he does what is needed, but he fails to show the emotions, the sorrow, the pain in him when he says I can't tolerate injustice. But as an action hero, he excels. Though he fails in the emotional and romantic department, he gives a better performance than his earlier craps movies like Raghuveer, Gadaaar and the flop film with Akshay Kumar Hum Hain Bemisaal. From each of his flops, he improves as an actor and this is his proof of improvement. Anjali Jathar is as beautiful as they come, but her being angry and making a scene in public is childish and a pain in the head. This is not the way you get a guy to be interested in you when he is worried about thugs after you and himself STUPID GIRL. Anumpum Kher excels as the true villain and the impostor of posing as a good father. The other villains like Kiran Kumar are garbage and provide weak support. They do nothing but shout and then get killed by Shetty. The story of this film is good to a limit, the typical action fare is the same thing but still fun to watch. The romance angle seems forced on how can a man fall in love with a girl in such a short time. But, the movie is from 1996 so this is forgiven. On the whole, Vishwaasghaat is a wooden as they come. But i give it a 4/10 for the awesome action and twist and some good songs and performances and dialogs. The Final Verdict: Sunil Shetty is a good actor though wasted in this film, sign if improvement is always there.
