Vaastav - The Reality (1999)
(Released: Oct 15, 1999)
Suleiman (Paresh Rawal) is Bombay's chief criminal don. All the rackets somehow or the other are linked to him. He has recruited a hitman named Raghunath Namdev Shivalkar (Sanjay Dutt), who has made a reputation for himself. While Suleiman relies on Raghunath, there are some others who despise Raghunath, and are just waiting in the sidelines to see when Raghunath makes an error. Raghunath does so, and hence becomes an embarassment for Suleiman. Soon Raghunath is on the run, both from the police, and Suleiman's men. Raghunath knows now that he must protect his wife (Namrata Shirodkar), parents (Shivaji Satham & Reema Lagoo), and family, as they too are in danger. Then Raghunath comes to know that the police have been ordered to kill him in an "encounter", and Raghunath now realizes that there is no escape from this harsh reality.
