Sanjay Dutt, Jackie Shroff, as well as Manisha Koirala, featured in Kartoos, a 1999 Bollywood Hindi action film helmed by Mahesh Bhatt featuring Sanjay Dutt, Jackie Shroff, and Manisha Koirala. It’s indeed Mahesh Bhatt’s final film as a director before Sadak 2. (2020). The narrative idea for the film Kartoos comes first from the 1993 movie Point of No Return, which would be a remake of a French film La Femme Nikita, wherein Bridget Fonda plays a character that is quite identical to Sanjay Dutt’s. Paramasivan was indeed the Tamil remake of the film (2006).
A cop named ACP Jay Suryavanshi (Jackie Shroff) instructs a criminal named Raja (Sanjay Dutt) on how to take down underworld don Jagat Jogia (Gulshan Grover). When Raja has a mishap, Jay conducts surgery as well as implants a transmitter in his leg. As a result, anytime Raja travels, Jay can keep track of his whereabouts (even when he is in the UK). Raja met and fell in love with Mini (Manisha Koirala), despite Jay’s refusal to allow him to do so. Raja murders Jagat Jogia and his gang before being set free by Jay and living happily alongside Mini.
The synopsis of the movie ‘Kartoos’
A bomb goes off in Bombay’s Gangaram Park, killing around 150 people, many of whom are children. This case is assigned to ACP Jay Suryavanshi, and four people are quickly apprehended. Terrorist Jagat Jogia claimed responsibility for the killings, but authorities are unable to apprehend him because he is already in London, England.
Jay talks with his boss about it, as well as the two of them team up to hire feared killer Jeet Balraj, rename him, Raja, help him avoid death row, and offer him freedom in exchange for killing Jagat Jogia, which he accepts. Jeet is given money, a passport, and a place to live in London, whereupon he relocates.
He encounters Manpreet Kaur when he arrives, as well as the two of them, fall in love. With somebody to inspire them in life, Jeet chooses to leave his previous life behind, just to discover not only does Jay have other intentions for his, as does Jagat, but both of their goals are just the same: his killing.
