During March 1993, after his Ambassador car is being fished out of water, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Agnel Wilson, narrates to the Commissioner as to how he commenced his investigation against an underworld gangster, Sultan Mirza. He details how Sultan had survived floods in Madras, shortly after Independence; his arrival in Bombay; and his employment which earned him a mere 25 Paisa daily. Agnel's attempts to rein in Sultan fail, but he keeps tabs on him and his romance with Bollywood actress, Rehana; as well as his new recruit, Shoaib, the son of Sub-Inspector Khan. Agnel will find his investigation slipping out of his hands after Sultan temporarily delegates complete responsibility to Shoaib. Written by
This film is based on the true-life tales of Haji Mastan and Dawood Ibrahim, the top racketeers of Bombay and the very first to be considered celebrities. Mastan ruled the Bombay gangland from the 1960s-70s, before being succeeded by Ibrahim in the 1970s-80s. See more »

I am thrilled to see these kind of movies from my childhood.We never get tired of stories of Underworld Dons in India.This one is a fabulous effort to recreate the golden era of Mumbai...the 70's and the director Milan Luthria successfully does that.
Basically it is the story of a Smuggler Sultan Mirza and His Confident Shoaib khan.Running parallel to this is the romantic tracks of both of them..
Sultan is a man of the people.having reached Bombay during the floods, he had smuggled Gold and watches from his childhood and on the other hand Shoaib, the spoiled boy of a police constable, was interested in Stealing. the Film progresses with the Sultan's Reign in Bombay, His eventual fall and Rise of Shoaib khan.It is told from the viewpoint of a police officer .
Ajay Devgn gives a Rock solid performance as Sultan Mirza.He portrays the role with ease......even though its similar to his role in Company. The first half entirely lies on his his shoulders.
Emraan is a treat to watch.He is extremely good in portraying the angry young man who is hungry for Power.His best performance till date......
The 2 heroines are hardly there ......there is not much importance to them.....Romantic tracks were good........ Dialogues are spectacular.....which keeps us glued to our seats...
choreography is excellent.....
Songs are top class......Pee loon is excellent...Other songs are also very good... .
Altogether, This Movie is a treat to watch for Real movie Lovers.....It is indeed an outstanding Cinematic experience considering the boring movies releasing nowadays......
Well for Me, I had watched it 2 times in theater....looking for ward for the DVD release......
