Storyline

Assistant Commissioner of Police Ramakant Chaudhry lives with his wife, Revati and younger son, Vishaal. His eldest son Vikas was murdered by criminals who are still at large. Vishaal tends to be hot-headed and cannot stand injustice in any form which often gets him into trouble now and again. Ramakant's honesty and dedication towards his job starts to create problems for the criminals in Mumbai city so much that he eventually stands accused of killing one of his fellow officers, is arrested and placed before the court of law. In court, Ramakant is proved mentally unstable with orders to be confined to a mental asylum. The same day the police also arrests Vishaal for physically assaulting the Police Commissioner, Desai. Looks like a criminal gang is coming down heavily on the Chaudhry family to get them out of their way. Written by gavin (racktoo@hotmail.com)

Greatest Hindi Action Film
2 January 2005 | by rockey129See all my reviews

The movie Elaan is relatively unknown among audiences, but I found it to be one of the best action movies in Bollywood history due to its intensity. The performance and stunts of Akshay Kumar are truly remarkable as Elaan, Mohra, and many other hits became the base on which Akshay has built his successful career. Being one of his biggest fans, I would recommend this movie to any other Akki fan because the movie truly delivers. There is something magical about the whole film as all its components come together in a wonderful fashion to create a movie worth watching over and over again. Amrish Puri also is great in the movie as he performs at his peak. Elaan is one of the best movies in Bollywood ever made!
