A group of three corrupt army officers, Virender (Dalip Tahil), Pratap (Suresh Oberoi), Jaswant (Salim Ghouse) and a smuggler called DK murder Vijay when he refuses to join them and betray his country. They declare that they killed him when they found out that he was a traitor. Vijays wife (Raakhee) knows that her husband was framed but has no proof. She sends her son away with Kapoor, (Ashish Vidyarthi) a family friend, as she wants to protect her son from being hurt by the villagers. Virender and his younger brother (Sharat Saxena) along with Pratap flee to Australia and smuggle weapons there to become tycoons. Jaswant and DK stay in India. Twenty years later, Vicky (Bobby Deol) gets a fax from Kapoor, who is now the Police Commissioner. Vicky is ordered to murder Jaswant and he does so. Then Vicky goes to Australia, and his mission there is to kill Pratap and Virender. In Australia, Vicky comes across Preity (Preity Zinta) who is Pratap's daughter, and they both fall in love. Vicky turns out to be Vijay's son, now out to clear his father's name. In an unexpected turn of events, the mastermind behind the plot to frame Vijay is revealed.
About the Actor
Bobby Deol was born Vijay Singh Deol on 27th January 1967. He is the son of the much adored star of yesteryears Dharmendra. His mother is Prakash Kaur. His older brother is the successful actor Sunny Deol; his step-mother is Hema Malini; his step-sisters are actress Esha Deol and not-yet-an-actress Ahana Deol. He is married to Tanya Ahuja and has two sons, Aryaman and Dharam. Bobby was ten years old when he first faced the camera in Papa Dharmendars film Dharam Veer which released in 1977. He played the childhood part of his fathers role His debut as the Bollywood hero happened only in 1995 with the release of Barsaat. It was one of the most hyped star kid launches in Bollywood. His co-star was Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadias star daughter Twinkle Khanna. Though the film didnt live up to the hype generated, he did win the Filmfare Best Debut Actor Award. But his 1997 release, the very slick thriller Gupt with Kajol and Manisha Koirala was unquestionably one of the biggest hits of the year. His other release Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya with Aishwarya Rai did not enjoy a similar reception. The following year saw two films Soldier and Kareeb. While Soldier co-starring Preity Zinta became a hit, Kareeb hit an average at the box office. In the years that followed, his films worth taking note of were Ajnabee and Humraaz. He was nominated for the Filmfare Best Actor Award for his role in the latter. He acted in two films, Dillagi and 23rd March 1931: Shaheed, with big brother Sunny but did not strike a hit. In 2007, his film Jhoom Barabar Jhoom was a below average performer with Indian film-goers while it did good business overseas. In Apne, he shared the screen with his father and brother. It did reasonably well. The year 2008 saw him in Dostana as Abhimanyu wooing Neha, played by Priyanka Chopra.

Preity Zinta's first movie as the heroine got herself some good image as the film did click well in the box office as well as the songs too worked well. She looks good at romantic scenes with that cute smile on her face and seems to be suited for comedy in the most appropriate manner. Well, she looked much different from the current Preity, well time has passed too fast, I think.
Dilip Tahil and Suresh Oberoi were good as the dons and Ashish Vidyarthi did his small role really well. Johny Lever did bring the much needed humour into the movie as expected as a person wandering here and there searching for his twin brother who was lost. He comes at all occasions when we are in need of some humour. We do want some humour in thrillers so that we can relieve the high pressure.
but the dvd have some screeched it like used dvd........
I actually bought this because i have fond memories of "Soldier" as the film that made me go back to watching hindi films after about a decade of not watching hindi films. The songs too were definitely worth buying as i got the audio CD from India. If one is able to get a good copy of the film, its definitely worth buying and watching the young Preity Zinta and Bobby Deol in a storyline that will leave you both surprised and shocked!
The vendor has really spoilt it for me!!!
