Bachchan and the successful team that had made Hum (1991) went on to make this film which starts in an unspecified period in tribal Afghanistan. The hero Badshah Khan (Bachchan) goes to India to avenge the killing of heroine Benazir’s (Sridevi) father. He does so, but in the process becomes involved in an honour pact with a Rajput police officer (Gokhale), which eventually forces Badshah to take responsibility for the cop’s death when the latter is murdered by a drug-smuggling bandit (Kumar). Later, when an old Badshah is released from jail, his daughter, whom he has never seen, has grown into a second Benazir (Sridevi again), forcing Badshah to come to terms with his past. He overwhelms the narcotics bandit with the help of two young police officers (Nagarjuna and Shirodkar) who are more or less his wards by virtue of the old honour pact. Badshah’s action also reconciles him with his by-now nearly demented wife Benazir. The complicated plot is told via an extravagant camera style including numerous shots, often from a helicopter, of deserts and mountain vistas. The film is dedicated to Manmohan Desai.
