Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Shakti Kapoor has the "bad guy" part -- and, by default, the most interesting role -- in the Indian production Taaqatwar. Kapoor plays a crooked builder who murders municipal officer Anupam Kher when the latter refuses to take a bribe. Schoolteacher Anil Dhawan is framed for the killing, and duly hanged. Years later, Dhawan's son Govinda, a petty thief, and Kher's son Sanjay Dutt, a police official, team up to square accounts with Kapoor. Taaqatwar runs 148 minutes, which for an Indian production is virtually a short subject.
