     13The hit film that introduced Devgun as a new 
     14star for the 90s. The plot is a drama about 
     15machismo in which the orphaned Ajay 
     16(Devgun) battles the drug-peddling son of his 
     17college trustee. When violence breaks out, he 
     18is mysteriously saved by a mafia don (Puri) 
     19who, it turns out, is his unacknowledged father. 
     20Ajay marries and has a son who is kidnapped, 
     21first by the gangster-father and then again by 
     22the don’s enemies. Ajay is reconciled with his 
     23father and together they eventually confront 
     24the real villains of the story. Much of the film’s 
     25violence is choreographed more effectively 
     26than is usual in Hindi films (cf. the locker-room 
     27fight in the men’s hostel and the hero’s Mad 
     28Max-type motor-cycle stunts). The virtual 
     29absence of a romantic sub-plot is typical of the 
     30aggressive crime thriller, using extensive 
     31political references, that came to dominate 90s 
     32Hindi cinema (cf. Prahaar, 1991). The several 
     33musical hits confirmed the music directors 
     34Nadeem-Shravan as major film composers of 
     35the early 90s.
