     14Nihalani returned to his familiar 80s genre (cf. 
     15Ardh Satya, 1983) of the fast-paced political 
     16thriller with this story about terrorist 
     17movements in Northern India. Abhay Singh 
     18(O. Puri), the emotionally insecure head of an 
     19elite anti-terrorist squad operating in a terrain 
     20made to resemble 1980s/90s Kashmir, sends 
     21two insurgents to infiltrate the terrorist group 
     22led by Commander Bhadra (Vidyarthi). Bhadra 
     23is captured and, for much of the film, matches 
     24wits with Singh using knowledge provided to 
     25him by his own informers within the police. 
     26When Singh’s own senior officer (A. Puri) 
     27commits suicide after being revealed as a 
     28terrorist informer, Singh breaks down and turns 
     29informer to save his wife (Vasisth) and child 
     30from the all-pervasive terrorist menace. In the 
     31end he kills Bhadra, and succeeds at the cost 
     32ofhis own life in placing his own man (Gunaji) 
     33at the head of the terrorist gang. The rapid 
     34editing, extended use of close-up and tight 
     35dramatic control - Nihalani’s hallmark - 
     36dominate the long and tortuous story.
