Storyline

Manu and Kanu are two con-men and petty thieves who work alone and are not known to one another. They individually decide to work for underground criminal Don "K.K.", and K.K. accepts them. This does not auger well with Bichoo, K.K.'s son, who dislikes them as he had physical disputes with them in the past. When both are assigned work, Bichoo makes an anonymous call to the police, and both are arrested, held in a cell, chained to each other. They are then transported to the Court, they escape, still chained to each other. It is then the underworld and the general community in India is shocked when photographs of both the escapees are flashed across television sets that they are responsible for killing a Police Inspector named Amar Sinha, and that the police have issued shoot-at-sight orders for both of them. The question remains, why would two small-time crooks take it upon themselves to kill a Police Officer? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

An old plot but not much wrong or right
17 October 2009 | by (a usa) – See all my reviews

I had chance to watch this movie long ago but i didn't saw it full. With thanks to today's TV we now are able to see movies over and over. I watched for 80s and for Sanjay Dutt. He is along with his pair govinda a con man who us usually lacks a job and steals to feed himself. A typical master of villainous characters Late Puri. Gulu as he is. Strong emotions of fallen apart of sister due to poverty, honest police officer and the real hero in con man. Plot is worth watching if you like 80s action. Good songs and worth watching on DVD or TV. Its not going to sadden you. Both, actors are defined in their appearance and acting. Well, choreographed old songs, of beat dialects. Sanjay Dutt is the old action king so do watch. Some pariodic songs of ding dong, ek duje ke liye and many others. Recommended movie if you enjoy action, 80s movies other than 80s typical drama genre, and Sanjay, Govinda who later after decade join to give comedies like Haseena Man Jayegi and Ek aur Ek guarah and Jodi no. 1. Watch this.
