Drama / Action / Bollywood (2004) 176 minutes ~ Color
For a while now the Mumbai police force has been under siege, unable to cope with the Mumbai crime syndicate's stranglehold on the city. The underworld bhai - which means "brother," or as applied in this context, "don" - Yusuf Pathan (an intense Irfan Khan) is funded by a business magnate (Jackie Shroff) and protected by none other than the Home Minister himself. The local constabulary finds itself handcuffed, its roster peppered with traitors and shirkers and homicidal hotheads. Veteran Sr. Inspector Vikram Singh (Shatrughan Sinha), once a dedicated peacekeeper, has given up. Constable Khaled Ansari (Paresh Rawal) generates welcome levity in the precinct but struggles to provide for his family with his meager pay. Sub-Inspector Appa Kadam Naik (Sunil Shetty) is a loose cannon, an "encounter specialist" who hangs his hat on capital punishment. In fact, he tends to apply capital punishment on them villains he encounters. These police officers are all fighting a losing battle.
