Storyline

For years Ravi Kumar is considered as the black sheep of the Kumar's family; is unemployed, does not have a stable future and gets himself involved in fights at the drop of a hat. In spite of these bad qualities there exists one good quality in him that is he is willing to fight against injustice so much that when a gangster is killed he is accused, charged and placed before the court. Ravi's parents and the witnesses know that he is innocent but unfortunately no one comes to testify in favor of him resulting in Ravi getting incarcerated. Written by gavin (racktoo@hotmail.com)

Great movie!
17 November 2015 | by luigi700See all my reviews

This was a movie I really enjoyed, great story and good acting have breathed life into these characters in the film. Anil Kapoor shows off both his comedic timing and great dramatic chops when the time is right. The music was pretty good for most of the film,but it wasn't my favourite soundtrack. Usually David Dhawan is known for his comedy films, but here he shows he can make an excellent serious movie with bits of comedy here and there. There was another review who mentioned the main character as being named loafer, but actually the character's name Ravi. Anyways I thought the film was great and it was very enjoyable.
