Storyline

After witnessing the sudden death of a woman, who was unable to afford hospital treatment, Dr. Ajay Kumar cancels his immigration to America and instead sets out to build a hospital that will cater to people who cannot afford treatment. Soon a hospital is built and is named "Amma People's Hospital". This attracts everyone's attention, and he becomes popular, especially with two women, Shweta and Sub-Inspector Ramya, and decides to marry Shweta. Shortly after Shweta gets pregnant, Ramya gets a distress call from her, claiming that she is being attacked by "Ajay". The police arrive to find her dead body and arrest Ajay for murder. Ajay's motive for killing her was monetary, as she is a wealthy heiress, and he is convicted and sentenced to death. While being transported to prison, the police van meets with an accident and Ajay escapes. With the police hot on his tail, he secretly meets with Ramya and tells her that he did not kill Shweta, and wants her help to catch the real killer. Will... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A movie which was a trend-setter in Telugu movies.
26 February 2015 | by rohitroxsterSee all my reviews

I can see a few people abusing the movie and its director for remaking a English movie.I guess the same people did not even know that this movie was a remake until recently when they realised it. The movie is a nice adaptation from the original and as a moviemaker has to make compromises to satisfy Bollywood and its viewers the movie turns out to be a good thriller for a 1990s timeline. Acting wise Nagarjuna excels in his actions both as a criminal and a doctor. Manisha Koirala and Ramya Krishnan were among the better actresses at that time and are glamorous. The comedy sequences are nicely mixed in between to divert the movie from being too monotonous. Gulshan Grover plays the villain role to perfection. Songs by M.M.Keeravani are a melody ride which are among the best songs in 90s era.
