Storyline

After being asked to leave by his Policewoman fiancee, Agni Sinha (Sandhya Mridul), Punit Sanyal (Arshad Warsi) is lying drunk on a street bench in Bombay, when he comes across a wounded man on the street, shot at by hoodlums owing allegiance to Gangleader, Gangu Tai (Pratima Kazmi). He decides to assist this male, Vishnu (Prashant Narayanan), owing allegiance to yet another crime boss, Ganpat Mohite (Anant Jog). Vishnu and Punit become close friends, though Punit is not asked to participate in any criminal activity. When Ganpat finds out that Punit's brother was a police informer, and his fiancee a policewoman, he instructs Vishnu to kill Punit, but Vishnu does not do so, and Ganpat issues instructions to have him killed also. In the meantime, Punit is abducted by Gangu Tai and held there. Gangu has taken a liking to Punit, as he reminds her of her son. When the police start an investigation against Gangu Tai, they assign Agni to go and arrest her, which she does. When Gangu is ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Suppperb script supported by some great acting and good music
25 October 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Arshad Warsi is at his comic best (once again after Munna Bhai) in the film. He refreshes the movie with his presence and brings subtle humor to scenes which could have turned quite cliché otherwise.. the ones I like best are the ones where he learns how to shoot and the other one in which he is made to sit next to Gangubai - his little squeak just throws the seriousness outta the sequence in a split second.

Equally intense in his performance is Prashant Narayan as Vishnu- the gangster with the simple, no-hassle attitude to life. The sorta chemistry between him and Arshad is somewhat reminiscent of the one we have seen in Satya movie between Bhiku and Satya. The friendship is like a Innocent, benign relationship budding amidst the morass of material conflicts, gang wars and pillage.

The director has done a great job at dealing with different issues in a lighthearted yet non-trivializing manner. At one end of the spectrum is the gory scenes with people mindlessly shooting one other, and yet there are moments which let you wander in the mushy,idealistic world of romance, friendships, ideals and all.

Music is another great add on to his movie.. Personal favs - Allah ke bande, Jism and Sajna.

Summary- Great movie. Shud have received much more attention.
