Plot[edit]

Kali (Makrand Deshpande) is a local ruffian who harasses students in his college. The principal Satyaprakash (Alok Nath) is helpless to stop him because Kali is the son of Dabala (played by Paresh Rawal) who is one of the biggest gangsters in town. The principal has two sons and a daughter - Vikas (Vijayendra Ghatge), Vijay (Sunil Shetty) and Pooja. Vijay is in love with Priya (Somy Ali) a colleague of his in his engineering company.

Kali rapes Pooja, and then the corrupt inspector Shirke (Deepak Shirke) puts the blame on Pooja's fiancee, and has him killed while in custody. This enrages Vijay and he embarks upon a bloody and violent fight to cleanse the city of ruffians like Kali and Dabala and Shirke. (Mohan Joshi) shows up in a cameo as an honest ACP.

Reception[edit]

The film was a success at the box office; that was mostly due to the action sequences featuring Sunil Shetty. One particular long action sequence features Shetty and Ali on a motorcycle, with Shetty clenching a stun-gun in his hand. Also the raunchy song "Aa Ja Jaane Jaa", gained popularity among the masses, thanks to some steamy shots between the leads (Sunil Shetty and a wet Somy Ali).

The film won the Filmfare Best Action Award.
