Suneil Shetty kept doing nonsense action films in the 90's after BALWAAN(1992) but post 1994 he kept getting flops BORDER(1997) was a godsend as it was a blockbuster and won him rave reviews and also his work started improving

Still he kept doing action films where he needs to fight mainly

VINASHAK too falls in the bracket though it's a decent film The film however has a good plot but it's handling is typical

The film has the typical 90's situations like the honest cop is blamed and then how he takes revenge

The film has some good scenes and writing by RKS is better then his most films but still it isn't anything novel

Direction by Ravi Dewan is good in parts Music is okay

Suneil tries hard though his role is similar to his debut BALWAAN yet he has improved a lot, though he still had rough edges those days Raveena is as usual Amongst rest The villains Danny, Tinnu Anand,Mukesh Rishi,Alok Nath are all as usual while Mohan Joshi is adequate Harish Patel is okay, Shivaji Satham leaves a mark in a small role
