     14Romeo (Kapoor), the handsome safecracker, 
     15encounters the sexy Seema (Sridevi), a rival in 
     16his profession. The two are hired by the 
     17criminal Chukran (Kher) to steal some 
     18diamonds. In return, Chukran promises to 
     19reveal the name of the man who killed Seema’s 
     20father. Chukran himself had killed both 
     21Seema’s and Romeo’s fathers, and both had 
     22grown up together at an orphanage and were 
     23childhood sweethearts. Chukran, the criminal 
     24mastermind, had also killed his own good twin 
     25brother Manmohanal (Kher again), which 
     26allows him to pose as a millionaire 
     27philanthropist. Jackie Shroff plays the honest 
     28cop, pursuing both Romeo and Chukran, who 
     29is revealed to be Romeo’s long-lost brother. 
     30The film’s mixture of elements from 
     31Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief (1955) with the 
     32penny-dreadful world of Spielberg includes the 
     33famous scene of Romeo and Seema hanging 
     34over a cauldron of acid before they are rescued 
     35by Romeo’s pet pigeon Django. Made as a 
     36spectacular and touted as the most expensive 
     37Indan film ever, it was a financial disaster, a feat 
     38later trumped by Ghai’s even more expensive 
     39Trimurti (1995). Most of the money was spent 
     40on spectacular sets and elaborate, sometimes 
     41innovative, song picturisations.
