Storyline

Advocate Gautam Mehra lives in Bombay with his wife, Anju, and a daughter, Rakhsa. One day while returning from court he sees a woman being molested. He stops, phones the police, and then tries to stop the molester, in vain, though as himself gets attacked and loses consciousness. But the police do arrive and arrest the molester. Raghuvir's attempts to convince Gautam to change his testimony are in vain. Gautam goes on to testify against Raghuvir Singh, and gets him sentenced to seven years rigorous prison. Six years later, Raghuvir re-enters the lives of the Mehras, and he is not going to disappear until he has had his vengeance against all three. Efforts to stop him through the police are in vain, as he has not committed any crime yet. The Mehras decide to re-locate to their farm house near a lake without notifying anyone. While they are being re-located Gautam finds out that it is not just Raghuvir who is out for vengeance - there is someone other than him who wants them dead. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A SPINE CHILLING REMAKE OF CAPE FEAR
13 November 2000 | by beenaanandaSee all my reviews

"Kanoon Kya Karega"or "What can justice do"?got a very talented young director Mukul S Anand his first film award of the most promising director of the year in India.It succeeds in reproducing the spine chilling atmosphere of this famous story of a hardened criminals lust for revenge and the havoc it wreks on the family of the lawyer who sent him to prison.The sensitivity of the indian context and the rigour of the original render the sparing use of stock in trade mainstream indian cinema devices such as song and dance to further the thematic furthering of the narrative make it a must viewing for all Mukul S Anand fans.
