Director: Rajkumar Santoshi
The story of a small group of honest men in uniform taking on the system may not be a novel idea, but Rajkumar Santoshi gives this anti-establishment film a whole new colour with his honest treatment of the subject. DCP Anant Srivastav (Amitabh Bachchan) is assigned the arduous task of bringing a terrorist (Atul Kulkarni) to Mumbai from Chandangarh. The DCP's team includes a senior inspector, Shekhar Verma (Akshay Kumar), who is clever but corrupt to the core, and sub-inspector Ashwin Gupte, who has all the good intentions and values in place. What starts off as a routine affair turns out to be a shocking revelation in several ways. One such shocker is Angre (Ajay Devgan), an ex-police officer who is the face of the corrupt in the system. The DCP's team ultimately takes on the establishment in a fight-to-finish.
