Storyline

Fellow Police Inspectors Arjun and Pyare work in the same Police Station in Mumbai, India. Although they work together, they have an unhealthy rivalry between them - leading to considerable acrimony and inefficiency. Then things get worse when a series of crimes and robberies take place - with witnesses coming forward and identifying them as the culprits. Their seniors view this matter very seriously, hold an inquiry, get evidence of their involvement, and suspend them. Now Arjun and Pyare must fore-go all past rivalries, band together and find out who framed them - and why? Written by Sonia

Watch the first 2 hours, then shut it off.
19 January 2000 | by hammer_pantsSee all my reviews

The first 2 hours are okay, but then it just turns to garbage, but fun garbage nonetheless. The songs in this movie are great. I understand that the first two hours of the movie was supposed to be a take on the movie Bad Boys, but after the bad boys story line is over the movie just goes into a downward spiral. I give it a 5 out of 10.
