Naajayaz (Illegitimate) is a 1995 Indian Hindi drama film. It performed below average at the box office in 1995 though Ajay Devgan was nominated for best actor at Filmfare for the first time in his career for his role in this film.


Inspector Jai (Ajay Devgan) is an upright and fearless cop who is given the job to take down the criminal empire of Raj Solanki (Naseeruddin Shah). Jai and his accomplice Inspector Sandhya (Juhi Chawla), who also happens to be his love, start taking down Raj's empire with a gusto. But Raj's cronies and benefactors are not the only ones to be upset by this.

Raj has problems of his own. He does not want his son (Deepak Tijori) to turn into a criminal like him. Raj is also aware of his minion's (Gulshan Grover) discontent; he wants to start many criminal activities that even Raj will not do. Raj tries to stop Jai without applying pressure or brutality, only to meet Jai's mother (Reema Lagoo) and realize that Jai is his son. Now Raj finds himself in a real tight spot.

Jai's mother does not like Jai trying to take down Raj, but Jai is determined. After some time, Jai learns about his relationship with Raj but continues his job nonetheless. Raj's legitimate son and his minion try to take down Jai individually, without knowing the secret.

How the story ends forms the plot of this film.



The biggest hit from soundtrack was the timeless song "Barsat Ke Mausam Mein" composed by Anu Malik and sung by Kumar Sanu and Roop Kumar Rathod. The song is one of the most popularly used song all over India by people at parties while drinking. The soul of the song comes from the deep voices of the singers and wonderful expressions given by Naseeruddin Shah in the video. The song was written by Sudarshan Faakir [1] The poetic depth in the song is excellent.
