Aditya Shrivastav is a deserted army officer. He has a brother, Anuj. Anuj gets angry at Aditya one day and runs away. ACP Yashwant Thakur helps Aditya in finding Anuj, and later tells him that Anuj was killed in an encounter. Aditya reads a police report, which stated that Anuj was running away with drugs, and was shot dead on the spot. Aditya can't quite believe this so investigates himself. He later meets Ramona, who reveals that ACP Yashwant Thakur and his two other police officers killed Anuj for no apparent reason and lied to cover it up. Aditya wants to take the matter to court and chooses Payal as his lawyer. However, after losing the case, Aditya decides to take matters into his own hands by holding the three until they confess their crime. This was successful and, having secretly recorded this evidence, shows it to the Police Commissioner. Written by gavin (

27 March 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Mostly Bobby Deol signed crap films except some This is one of his better films

it has a done to death story agreed, but the film is handled very well by E.Niwas though they are some snags

The film starts off well and comes to the point quickly and the entire scenes of Bobby searching for Ritiesh till the morgue scene are fantastic

The film does follow the beaten part but thankfully our hero is mostly realistic in his use of media.etc and doesn't go the sunny way till the Pre-climax

The climax does a about turn and looks stupid even the characterization of Ritiesh looks too confusing, like he is shown like a bad guy first and then completely honest

E-Niwas after the riveting SHOOL and okay LOVE KE LIYE KUCH BHI KAREGA gives a decent film Music is okay, luckily only 2-3songs and they don't distract

Bobby Deol excels in his part, his suppressed anger is well handled Earlier Bobby looked too uncomfortable in emotions but he has grown a lot and is awesome in his role though he reminds of Sunny in portions Lara is good, better then in many of her films Ritiesh is good in his small part Tara is less annoying as she was in MASTI Rahul Dev is okay Virendra Saxena is great
