Storyline

Journalist Roma Singh is the daughter of a jailer. While taking a tour of the jail, she is molested by some of the inmates, and an inmate, Vishal Agnihotri comes to her assistance. She finds out that Vishal is in for four homicides, and decides to investigate further. She finds out, with the help of the owner of her publications, Jindal that Vishal was compelled to take the law in his own hands when the courts failed to punish the assailants of his sister and sweetheart. Soon, Vishal is released from prison, and begins to work for Jindal. It is then that he realizes that he has just walked from a walled prison, to an open prison, as the truth behind his release slowly but surely starts to dawn on him.

Trivia

Destiny, they say, plays an important part in every person's life and so it was with Raza Murad. He made his debut in the Amitabh starrer, Ek Nazar. Sonam (his niece) was not even born then. In fact, Raza's sister was pregnant with the possibility of delivering Sonam who was to later become a star. As Raza goes in flashback mode, he remembers how, when he attended the premiere of Ek Nazar at Novelty, Bombay, with his pregnant sister, he would hardly have imagined that 252 films later, he would be attending (on 29th June '94) a trade show of a film made by none other than Sonam's husband, Rajiv Rai, at the same Novelty cinema. And this time, in the company of Sonam herself! Yes, Mohra is Raza's 252nd film. Time flies and how! But such quirks of fate make for pleasant memories. See more »

tu cheez badi hai mast mast....
8 July 2003 | by jx007See all my reviews

....is the main reason I saw the movie, and recently too.....nostalgic for that super-hit song which I haven't heard in a while. The movie overrall was "eh". I don't know Hindi, but I can tell the acting wasn't all there based on other Hindi movies I have watched. The songs were amazing albeit having nothing to do with the movie itself. The plot was decent but could have been strengthened with better acting especially from the big Bollywood names that were in this movie. Anyway, classic because of the songs, not much the movie itself.
