Storyline

Gowda is a goonda (an Indian Mafioso) whose octopus like tentacles have a hold on illegal numbers game (matka), brewing and distribution of illicit liquor, smuggling of firearms and other contraband. To aid and abet him, he has the cooperation of a senior police officer, a minister and the entire official machinery under their control. Three brothers, Ajit (a military man - Fawzi), Bhagat - a policeman and Jai, who is unemployed are on a collision course with Gowda and his goons. Within the police, Pawar, the honest Commissioner and Bapat, his deputy are on a collision course. The Minister is orchestrating both the administrative and the Mafia bosses, and their underlings. While this is a formula film of the mid 1990's an ageing Dharmendra still puts in a credible performance. Rest of the acting is at best, mediocre. The plot and dialogues are predictable. The usual elements of corrupt politicians, police, honesty, patriotism, values are present in this B Grade film. Worth watching ... Written by mg-gopalan
