The gangster Bulla (Mukesh Rishi) becomes the crime lord of Mumbai after killing his rival Lamboo Aata (Ishrat Ali). However, when his right hand man Kala Shetty (Rami Reddy) is arrested by police due to the intervention of a coolie and a good samaritan Shankar (Mithun Chakraborty), Bulla swears revenge. He manages to trap Shankar's sister Geeta (Sapna) into a sham marriage with Gulshan (Gulshan Rana) who is a scamster working for the pimp Lucky Chikna (Razak Khan). Bulla's younger brother Chutiya (Shakti Kapoor), who has long been impotent, becomes sex-crazed under the influence of London-imported pills provided by his loving elder brother and proceeds to brutally rape Geeta and ends up killing her. When Shankar's policeman father is also killed by the corrupt Inspector Kale (Rana Jung Bahadur), Shankar swears that he will kill Bulla, Chutiya, their ally Potey (Mohan Joshi) and the rest of their entourage within ten days.

Dare To Defy Newtonian Laws !! Then Watch This Antiphysical Exuberance at its Best !!!
27 March 2006 | by rockthegodSee all my reviews

Two words to describe it.. awesome and hearth robbing. This movie led to the development of Mithunda Fan Club at IIT Kharagpur. What brilliant action and tremendous screenplay !!(including random but dazzling background change). This is sure to lure out the best of Newtonian scientists out from their grave to reanalyze the natural laws which they had flawed. This movie depicts how common men can reach heights of wealth (like Mithun, who is a common dock worker, and his sister wearing fancy micro-skirts and mini tops to a college located in the mountainous terrains and Jungles). This movie also generates the option of creating an Indian video game on the likes of serious Sam, but the only changes will be auto loading Rocket launchers (whose 1 fire can cause 5 blasts) taken out from the Dickie of a Maruti Esteem and randomly fired at 1000s of random moving Auto-Rickshaws, but the obvious random factor coming into play and no rocket can hit its target. Coupled with this, enormous number of AK4x's firing enormous number of red bullets. This movie has everything: from Rape of the Century to The War of the Century. With amazing and absorbing story, brilliant direction, amazing dialogs (DI-a-LOGUES in real meaning), godly cast, and tremendous Mithun ACtion, Its a must watch for every movie fan out thr !!!!!
