Angar (1992)

This movie portrays the problems of Mumbai lower class due to the nexus of criminal gangs and the fight against them by an angry young man Jackie Shroff. Though movie is typical for a one man fight against corruption similar to the Amitabh Bachhan movies and strongly resembles Arjun by Sunny Deol; still movie receives credit for strong performances by Kader Khan, Nana Patekar and the silent yet powerful acting of Jackie Shroff.

Cast: Jackie Shroff, Dimple Kapadia, Om Puri

The real-estate builders want to wipe off the slums in Mumbai and make five star hotels for fast profit. Jackie Shroff is struggling for a job and also pressurized by his family problems. While Nana Patekar’s gang is trying to isolate the slum, they get a head-on with Jackie and face repulsion. Nana’s brother Mazhar Khan goes to beat Jackie but gets killed by him during a fight. Nana kills Jackie’s father which ignited a fury to extinguish his evil empire.

Though Kader Khan is actually the Don and father of Nana, he only uses his powers to give justice to the poor and not oppress them. He detests Nana’s activities but is unable to stop him. He tries to persuade Jackie to forget the whole episode, but Jackie rejects and goes on his spree to destroy Nana. He places bombs in the illegal building constructions by Nana and eventually kills him. Dimple is ornamental as she was in Arjun, but looks graceful. Jackie was stunning and the movie also has a few good songs.

Overall this movie is considered as one of the good movie by Jackie Shroff.Beside him the role potrayed by Nana was well accepted by the audiences that led him to won the Filmfare Best Villain Award for his role.
