Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi’s Hindi debut and, like his later Hindi films Aaj Ka Goonda Raj (1991) and Gentleman (1994), a remake of an earlier Telugu hit (Ankusham, 1989). Violent even by Chiranjeevi’s standards, it tells of an ‘honest’ cop Siddhanth (Chiranjeevi) who frequently breaks the law in order to punish criminals. He offers protection to and later marries Shanti (Chawla), an eyewitness to the murder of a politician. Pitting himself against the might of a liquor baron (Patel), a gangster (Reddy), a corrupt police official (Inamdar) and the State Home Minister (Kharbanda), he loses his wife, his job and eventually his life in the service of the Gandhian Chief Minister Satyendra (Somayajulu). Much of the rhetoric, apparently in defence of an honest police force, seeks to defend individual vigilantism.
