Storyline

Peter D'Mello is arrested by the police for the brutal killing of the local municipal officer, Sharma. Peter is tried in court, and found guilty and sentenced to be hanged. Peter leaves behind a young son, John, who is orphaned. Mrs. Sharma, who lives with her young son, finds out that Peter had not killed her husband, feels sorry for John and decides to adopt him. She also finds out that Munjal Khurana, a powerful and influential builder was the one behind her husband's death, but is afraid of reporting this to the police. Unable to bear the taunts from his schoolfriends about his dad, John runs away. Years later, Mrs. Sharma's son is a police inspector, while John is a career criminal. Fed-up of Inspector Sharma's interference, Munjal hires John to kill Sharma, for a hefty fee, to which John agrees to. When John goes to kill Sharma, he finds out that the Sharmas are the very family who had shown some affection and understanding for him, and he confesses to them. Both Sharma and John...

decent bollywood entertainer
29 April 2008 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This film is a typical desi storyline of actor who's father dies by the bad guy and grows up for revenge. But luckily most of the film is not focused on the revenge side although it does have action scenes. This is a David Dhawan Movie and yes it does have comedy. Its like watching a game of cops and robbers, where Sanju is the cop and Govinda is the thief. The movie is very entertaining and i would recommend this to anyone looking for a decent entertainer. Neelam is alright, Anita Raj ain't too bad, Govinda and Sanjay are both equally great. They have made many films together and all have been hits. Do Qaidi, Jeete hain Shaan se, Haseena Maan Jayegi, Jodi No. 1 & Ek aur ek gyarah.
