Meet Subhash Nagre - a wealthy and influential resident of Bombay. He lives in a palatial house with his wife, Pushpa; sons Vishnu and his wife Amrita and their son; a second son, named Shankar, in the United States. Subhash and his family are thrilled when Shankar returns home, in the company of a gorgeous long-legged young woman named Pooja, who he plans to marry soon. While Subhash adores both his sons, he shows his open disappointment for Vishnu, whose language, childish actions, and his affair with a Bollywood actress named Sapna are just few of his wrong actions. When Vishnu finds out that a Bollywood actor is attempting to start an affair with Sapna, he angrily guns him down in front of several witnesses. Subhash asks Vishnu to leave the house, and thereafter Vishnu is arrested and charged with murder. Then all hell breaks lose in the Nagre household when a politician named Motilal Khurana is killed, and the killer names Subhash as the person who hired him to do this killing. ...

2005 bollywood blockbuster
26 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Finally Ramu gets his masterpiece, I believe that a filmmaker can only hit a peak like this only once. After seeing Ramu experiment with different styles I believe ramu gets it right by using the correct cinematography accompanied by the colourful and sometimes intense background music's I think it's a marriage made in haven Big B taking on Marlon Brando role here I believe the public the actor and the fraternity wanted to see this happen.I believe, right from the opening scene Big B gives a cold stare implying I am in control of this role by doing this he puts his stamp on role and states I will do this my way. I think Big B has been waiting for Junior B to learn his craft before taking on this role. Junior B to his credit has puts a lot of thought into little mannerisms for which he has receive a lot of accolades. As a die hard Big B fan its even hard to comprehend that junior B has the capacity to outdo his legend of a father. This film suggests that Junior B with performances like this and his work in Guru his starting to fill those big boots
