a faded and contrived crime drama done with a style......
19 May 2015 | by SumanShakyaSee all my reviews

A happy family with a police commissioner father, his wife, daughter, and two sons. One of the sons is a police sub inspector and other is a lawyer. The city is full of crimes with a villain in a run to destroy the happiness of the police commissioner's family. The daughter is raped and later commits suicide. The police commissioner who is convicted for a murder escapes from the gallows to kill the villain. His own son relentlessly pursues to catch his father and other son pursues to save his father from the gallows. Perhaps this story is heard of umpteenth times and the villains are also the same crap. However, the film still isn't a total let down as the film has been done with some style owing to a good direction and a gripping role of veteran, Raj Kumar. The convulsion of two sons against their father also makes the story interesting. Besides these reasons, rest of the film isn't worth remembering for. For me, the film was a dated crime saga with some interest else was nothing more than a forgettable crap.
