Storyline

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 (gunmasterM@hotmail.com)

Finally, a hero who uses his brains!
21 July 2004 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

Although though the story is not new, the movie's approach to it definitely is. Basically, when "those" scenes arrive where you can guarantee what is going to be the outcome, usually the opposite happens. I liked Bobby Deol's character. He was more realistic and less irritating than your typical bloodthirsty protagonist out to seek vengance for the guy who killed his brother, mother, sister, etc. You know those moments when you're like talking to the characters and saying stuff like "Why did you do that? You should have done..." Well, in this movie, Bobby actually uses his brains! Wow! Hooray! He simply is seeking for justice and doesn't waste his and our time fighting every "gunda" that gets in his way. Lara Dutta's character is also nice. She plays an honest and intelligent lawyer and Bobby's ex-girlfriend. The entire cast, who hasn't appeared in a movie for a quite a while until this movie released, brings a fresh feel to the film, especially Rahul Dev. Songs are good.
