No FIR, no arrest, no talk, faisla on the spot - the
dictum of one of the protagonists sums up the film in
one line. This cop story is one of tussle between father
and son to achieve the same goal through different methods.
Awadesh Pratap Singh (Vinod Khanna) is an upright police
commissioner who goes strictly by the decades old was
son Abhay Pratap Singh (Bobby Deol), an assistant commissioner
of police, believes in just the opposite no FIR, no
arrest, no talk, faisla on the spot - in short age-old
laws are redundant in today's world. So we see Abhay
taking law into his own hands throughout the film. In
this grim police scenario is added some romance. Abhay
falls in love with Sanjana (Amisha Patel) just after
meetings. She is introduced as a research scholar writing
a thesis on the Mumbai police.
all she does is prance about and romance with Abhay
- sometimes in the Swiss countryside or sometimes in
our own mustard fields (a la Dilwale Dulhaniya le jayenge-
particularly the song dil mein dard sa jaga hai is a
take off on tujhe dekho to yeh jana sanam as far as
the locales are concerned).
cannot be so simple for cops. So there's trouble in
the form of Mahendar Singh Rana (Kabir Bedi), a wealthy
businessman, who wants to cause unrest and harm. So
when he meets the daring Abhay he senses trouble. The
tussle starts between them. Cleverly Rana manipulates
Awadesh and gets Abhay jailed for offences he has not
committed. Abhay's mother Sushma (Rati Agnihotri) is
shattered and takes up the cause of her son with her
husband. Who will win this battle?
wise the cast fares all right. Vinod Khanna reprises
his role as a police officer after a hiatus. Rati Agnihotri
makes quite a glamorous mother. Bobby Deol with his
dishum-dishum punches gives a satisfactory performance.
All Amisha has to do is wear different outfits to cavort
around. Jatin Lalit's music is strictly average.
The film looks at change at a very simplistic level.
If this is the kind of revolution Kranti vouches (after
three ling hours) then people will be at the receiving
end for no fault of theirs. Watch the film (filled with
half a dozen unwarranted songs) only if you like cop
