(Released: Feb 12, 1988)
Inspector Srivastav (Kader Khan) is framed by a wily and cunning gangster, J.K. (Amrish Puri), and unable to prove his innocence, hangs himself, leaving behind his wife (Rohini Hattangadi), and son, Vijay. Years later, Vijay (Amitabh Bachchan) has grown up and has joined the police force as an Inspector. Unlike his dad, he is corrupt and does accept bribes to turn a nelson's eye to crime. The City Police are assigned the task of apprehending a customed man called "Shahenshah", who operates at night and targets, tries and kills gangsters in a "Judge and Executioner "style. No one knows the real identity of Shahenshah, as he is feared by the police department, and respected by the poor and middle-class.
