Storyline

Under the directions of the Minister for Information and Broadcasting, the Indian Censor Board prepares a list of cuts for Bollywood film producer, Vikramjeet's new movie "Aane Wala Kal". Vikramjeet is unhappy and decides to meet the Minister himself to appeal against these cuts, only to find out that the Minister favors even more cuts. Then Vikramjeet shows this movie in a private theatre to an audience from all walks of life, he then takes their written opinion, smuggles a copy to America, just in time to ensure that it is nominated for an Oscar. This is where Vikramjeet's troubles start as the Censor Board refuses to grant a "U" certificate; he is arrested for smuggling the movie without permission from the Reserve Bank of India. The only way he can escape the wrath of the authorities is getting some fans and stars of his movie to gather some dirt on the Censor Board members and expose them publicly. But will this pacify the authorities, or will it aggravate the situation. Watch ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

dev anand special
1 March 2010 | by sharankandhaiSee all my reviews

This is another one of the Dev Anand specials from the 80s and 90s. The story is chaotic. The movie stars Dev Anand, Mink, Anita Ayub (from Pakistan), Ajit, Anil Dhawan, Bindu, Deepak Tijori, mamta Kulkarni, Jogindar, Arjun, Sudhir, Alok Nath, Rakesh bedi, Navneet Nishan and others. The film is so bad that its actually fun. The story, as far as there is one, is about Ajit who falsely accuses Dev of rape and gets him in prison and his sons who rape girls. Dev comes out 12 years later and together with his discoverys who are rape victims take revenge on Ajit and his sons. Not many familiar faces like in Sache Ka Boil Bala (which was actually fun), Awwal Number or the worst Dev film, Censor, but fun nonetheless
