Storyline

Ravi lives in Bombay city with his blind and ailing mother, who cannot withstand any excitement. His dad works out of town, but manages to send them money for their livelihood every month. Then one day the Police come and knock on his door, and inform him that his father has passed away. He is devastated, but hides this fact from his mother, and arranges the funeral with the help of friends and neighbors. He comes to know that his father was killed by a man named Shiva, and he vows to avenge this. One day he gets into a fight with hoodlums, and a man named Tony comes to his aid. They become fast friends, and Ravi even takes him to live in their house. Subsequently, Tony's mother also comes to live with them. And then Ravi finds out that Tony is not who he claims to be - but maybe Shiva in disguise - perhaps out to complete the work of killing everyone in Ravi's family.

A diligent migrant worker stumbles on a secret. His son Ravi and his friends son Shiva are trapped in a web.
21 June 2014 | by (New Zealand / India) – See all my reviews

Govinda as Ravi, cares for his blind and sick mother while his diligent dad works in a distant place. Shiva is the son of the dad's friend who are all snared in the web of a gang who are involved in concealing explosives in toys.

Both Govinda and Jack Daud carry the film, while most of the support cast are props. The storyline could have improved Mandakini's role from being just a lovey dovey person who emotively responds to stimuli.

The bad guys are a wee bit exaggerated and stereotyped, but that is the nature of most B-Grade movies. Songs and dance sequences are a bit insipid, the choreography could have been better. Stunt sequences are a bit contrived.

The plot however is nicely developed through to the denouement. There are boring spots, where one would wish the the director would mosey things along. Thankfully there are no rape or attempted rape scenes, but with the violence I would give it a PG rating, in other words, watch it first before you let your 14 year old watch. Definitely not recommended for younger children.
