Storyline

Dr. Anju Khanna is admonished by hospital administration when she gets upset with a male for assaulting his wife. She then recounts her very own story of being forcibly confined by Bijnor-based Jaswant Sisodiya, an influential gangster, who loves her insanely but refuses to marry her. Her as well as doctor father's attempts to seek justice are all in vain. Then Jaswant's protégé, known only as Rajvir's son, re-enters Jaswant's life. He is very loyal and dedicated to the latter, and does everything he is told without question. When attacked by a group who oppose Jaswant, he kills seven men, is arrested, tried in Court, and acquitted. He then saves Jaswant's life from an assassin allegedly hired by S.P. Bhupen Singh, and then ensures the latter's demise. Then Jaswant's life faces more challenges when the Criminal Investigation Department from Lucknow launches an inquiry following a complaint from Anju and her dad. It is this move that will compel Jaswant to force Dr. Khanna to withdraw ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Nothing remarkable
1 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The wikipedia article of this film says it was a disaster...no doubt.

The story is about a young medical student who is kept forcefully in the house of a local don as his concubine,and when his younger brother arrives here to assist him in his business, he finds the girl and pities her, and does all he can for her, amidst gangsters, cops and his own conscience.

The truth is, this film is too simple for anyone to watch. The best thing is Manoj Bajpai's acting, and the ending track - that's all. Everything else is alright but nothing remarkable...the cinematography, direction -nothing.

It is NOT a bad film, and CAN be watched, but I don't see how this film could've run, and I don't understand why money and resources are wasted on such films.
