Storyline

An ex-boxer Baldev Choudhary has had a stain in his boxing career. He wanted to wash it with his son Angad's success, but times were hard and a financial crunch kept him from achieving this dream. Though Angad pulled through fine, Baldev never forgot who ruined his chance. An opportunity strikes Baldev in the form of a T.V. Show. He trains a local boy to get into this media hyped boxing show, but is ditched for a better coach at the last minute. Baldev's younger son Karan has just launched his first music album. Realizing his father is in a crises, he gives up his dream of a musical career to get into the game of boxing. Karan works hard and wins all through thinking that his victory will bring the two pillars of his family together. After winning within the nation, he wins all over the world. The final match is with the current world heavy champion. Written by Raj Singh

Boxing chick flick
16 July 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Yes, it is an oxymoron. A boxing movie designed to cater to the females in the auditora is as unappetizing in thought as it is in execution. There is far too much sobbing in this depressing tale of a disgraced Indian boxer (Dharmendra) who cannot move on with his life. Dharmendra has always been a great actor, but in Anil Sharma's hands this time around, he is reduced to a weeping, willowy, little girl trapped in a man's body. What happened to the super-strong Dharam-paji of Anil Sharma's super-hit Hukumat? Heck, Dharmendra was a thousand times more engaging in the recent Anurag Basu venture, Metro. Sunny is ten years too old, and one hair piece too ugly, for his role as the misunderstood eldest son. And Bobby's transformation from a rocker to super-athlete is impossible to digest. Skip it. If you want to enjoy better Deol fare, there are a thousand other choices out there. (Try Chupke Chupke, Ghulami, Yateem, Dacait, Damini or Gupt.)
