Storyline

In order to prevent honest Ramchandra from being elected as Mayor, Digvijay Singh alias Dharamdas sets his men upon him, his son, Ram Kumar, and his wife, all in vain, as Ramchandra wins. Shortly after his election, Ramchandra is framed and is forced to quit office after a scandal, and he hangs himself. Ram, his mom, and his sister, Chanda, re-locate and are not heard from again. Then a young man, Prince Chandrashekar from Johanneburg, South Africa, surfaces, claims he is a multi-millionaire, and would like to go into business with Digvijay Singh. This Prince also meets with Digvijay's sister and friend, Renuka, and Manju respectively and has an on-going affair with both at the same time. Digvijay is not happy with what's going on, and he asks his men to investigate the background of this Prince, and what they find will change Digvijay's life forever.

Shameless! Really...
17 March 2004 | by Arvind VyasSee all my reviews

Most of the early movies of AB had good theme and story lines. This is one of his early movies where the theme starts decaying.

AB lives in a village which is dominated by evil Thakur Amzad Khan. His father an honest teacher dies courtacy Thakur. Unknown to Thakur AB grows to become a Police Inspector. Comes back to village, posing as a prince, he wants revenge which is also rolled in the call of the duty.

Sarika has played role of Thakur's sister, who falls for Amitabh. Average stuff altogather. Deven Verma provides comic relief and watch for his comments just before intermission and end of the movie.

Overall an indifferent movie. Watch or not, hardly would make a difference.
