Storyline

This is the story of the Shivalkar family. Stigmatized as a family of criminals, thugs, and gangleaders, each generation is subjected to the same oppression and the vicious circles created partly by themselves, and by the surrounding communities, including the police, politicians, and people in general. These are the circumstances under which Rohit Shivalkar (Sanjay Dutt) grows up under. Nicknamed "Boxer Bhai" by his friends as he excelled in boxing in his college days, Rohit grows up to be perhaps the most powerful of the Shivlkars. His reach is beyong the state's chief ministers, the police commissioners, and an election cannot take place before a deal is made with Boxer Bhai. Rohit has weaknesses, he cannot stand any woman being called a prostitute, because his mom, Sonu (Namrata Shirodkar) was one; and he has fallen hard for a married woman, Gauri (Shilpa Shetty), who is enduring a marriage with a phsycially abusive spouse. Rohit snatches her out of this abusive relationshisp and ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

The story is good the execution is flawed
15 April 2003 | by hmarcySee all my reviews

This movie is focused on the story line and the development of characters. It of course it has the obligatory songs but they are no too out of place and the production quality of each different as the plot changes. The story is about a boy whose father is a criminal and who is forced into this lifestyle because of pressure from outside forces. It takes to the life with a real favor and becomes a ruthless outlaw. The life he is leading is full of reflections bank on a troubled childhood and a family that was torn apart by his fathers lifestyle. He is going through the same things yet he seems to have some issues with respect for people he is close to. He has a good girl friend, loses the girl and gets her back but with dire consequences. His lifestyle begins to get him down and he becomes self-destructive. As I don't speak Hindi the movie's sub-titles were poor but the story was easy enough to follow. A lot of violence and double-crossing but this was the life he chose. If you like the Hindi movies that are up beat with humor and great dance numbers this is not the movie for you. If you want to be entertained by as decent story then sit back for three hours and watch this.
