Storyline

Ajay Mehra lives with his elder brother Ashok and sister-in-law Indu. He leaves for Bangalore in order to train to become an international boxer. On his return to New Delhi, he finds that Ashok is missing. He lodges a complaint at the police station but to no avail. He decides to search for his brother himself but still does not find him. Later on, Ashok's body is found and Ajay is accused of killing him as well as having an illicit relationship with his sister-in-law. While in jail, Ajay makes friends with some other hardcore convicts, who are good at heart. Then one day, they escape the jail by overpowering the guards. Ajay only has one thing on his mind: to kill Balwant Rai, a wealthy, powerful and corrupt businessman who had used Ashok's business as a front for his illegal activities. Ajay's new friends and his love interest Varsha, a journalist, help him in his mission. Written by Soumitra

One of the Best Bollywood Movies!!!
30 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie was probably last original bollywood action film. The Actors are tremendous, One of Sunny Deol's best performance if not the best. This movie marked the end of an Action Era in Bollywood, which was ruled by actors such as Amitabh, Sunny, Sanjay and Anil and many others before love stories of late 90's caught the attention such as Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and DDLJ and many more. Sunny Deol is brilliant in this film and so is Amrish Puri who sadly passed away last year, and will missed by billions of Indians. The confrontation of Sunny and Amrish Puri is amazing...acting at its best. Sunny won National Award for this film. If you want to know bollywood inside and out I highly recommend this movie, not the movies that are being shown today, most of the today's movies are either have the same story or a remake of a Hollywood movie. This movie is a must watch movie!!!
