Storyline

16 December, 1971 was the day when India won the war against Pakistan, and was also able to liberate Bangla Desh from Pakistan's rule. Although the ruling dictator of Pakistan surrendered unconditionally to India, some of the hard-lined Pakistani soldiers were bitter and angry at the surrender, as they wanted to continue fighting the Indians until their last breath. They retreated in silent and later came together to form their own groups of Jihaadi soldiers to carry out terrorists attacks against neighboring India. One of them was Dost Khan (Gulshan Grover). Although the Indian authorities were aware of Dost Khan's terrorist activities, they were unable to apprehend him as he kept changing disguises, and always kept one step ahead of the authorities. This matter was assigned to Chief of Revenue Intelligence Vir Vijay singh (Danny Denzongpa) and his team of Vikram (Milind Soman), Victor (Sushant Singh), and Sheeba (Dipanita Sharma). Their investigation led them to the conclusion that ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

One hell of an Indian film
5 January 2006 | by coolraj003See all my reviews

This film deserves a 9 out of 10. I can say that because this films stands out completely from the crowd of typical Bollywood films with their stories about romantic drama. This film has proved that even bollywood can come up with hi-gadgetry and more of a Hollywood style stuff rather than normal dancing around the trees. I loved the idea of saving a disaster using modern technology and trying new things than doing some of that old fashioned stunts and spying.The computer effects were also pretty decent. This is one film that i would recommend to all those who are tired of watching romantic dramas from bollywood. Totally off the scale. The story is superb with the actors performing real good. I hope to see more of such films coming from bollywood. brilliant work.
