     12Aamir Khan’s first starring role prior to his 
     13breakthrough with Qayamat Se Qayamat 
     14Tak later in the year. The story, told in 
     15flashback, focuses on a young man whose 
     16interior monologue accompanies the film. The 
     17hero (Khan) helplessly watches his girlfriend 
     18(Pathak) being gang-raped. To refurbish his 
     19male pride (the woman’s suffering is trivialised 
     20in the film), he spends the rest of the film, 
     21aided by a good cop (Kapoor), avenging the 
     22slighting of his manhood by the gangster and 
     23his henchmen responsible for the rape. The 
     24revenge story is presented as a fatalist 
     25meditation on ‘meaning of life’. Using closeups, 
     26flashing lights and throbbing music 
     27(composed by the rock drummer Ranjit Barot) 
     28under the dialogue, the film tries to induce the 
     29viewer to wallow in the choreography of 
     30violence.
