Produced by Dharmendra, Deol’s father, and designed to create a definitive screen image for Deol as the urban Rambo-type vigilante (like Stallone, Deol has in every film, at least once and sometimes on several occasions, a scene where he is chained, insulted and physically tortured as the camera lingers over his sweating and bulging muscles). Here Deol plays Ajay, whose elder brother Ashok (Babbar) becomes involved with drug-dealing villains led by the politician Balwant Rai (A. Puri). When the politician collaborates with legal top brass to convict Ajay for murdering his own brother, Ajay becomes a one-man army against the state. He kidnaps the police commissioner (Kharbanda), informs Balwant Rai that the day of judgement is at hand and finally gets his man in a huge Coney Island-style amusement park. The film established Raj Kumar Santoshi, the son of P.L. Santoshi, song-writer and director of C. Ramchandra musicals, as a director in his own right.
