Elaan focuses on Baba Sikander (Mithun), a harmful and dangerous terrorist who abides by his own laws to achieve his aims.

He kills anyone who dares get in his way. One such man is Kantilal Shah, who refuses to yield to his demands and pays a terrible price.

Arjun Rampal

But then, there is also a man by the name of Karan Shah (Rahul Khanna) who will defy all odds to capture this villain. And that's his Elaan (meaning aim or ambition)

Karan was once a street urchin selling tea in an office. Now he's a business wiz kid and heir to a formidable empire.

It was Kantilal Shah who took Karan under his wing and made him what he is now.

Hugely indebted to this man, Karan decides to capture his criminal and bring him back to India where he can be tried in court.

So to carry out his mission, he seeks the help of Arjun (Arjun Rampal), Abhimanyu (John Abraham), Priya (Amisha Patel) and Sonia (Lara Dutta) who also want to get rid of Baba for their own personal reasons.

Mithun Chakravorty
Mithun Chakravorty is the dreaded Baba in the film

Arjun, a former police officer, used to enjoy his work but during a crossfire, he lost his wife.

Due to this incident, he was forced to give up his job. But try as he might, he could not give up his love for his country.

Abhimanyu is a petty thief who graduated to a drug dealer. But when he decides to go straight, he is betrayed and imprisoned.

A Casanova by nature, Abhimanyu loves money and women. His specialist knowledge involves the enemy's hideouts.

Sonia is a bar dancer, whose innocence and faith unwittingly put everybody's life in the greatest danger of all.

She beleives that Abhimanyu will give up being a crook for her sake. So she waits for that day to arrive.

Then there is Priya, a television reporter who will stop at nothing to get a sensational story for her channel. She noses around, eavesdrops and even tries a spot of blackmail - all in the line of duty!

Her fascination for Karan and her desire to get the main lead for her newspaper brings Priya close to the other three people with one mission - and that is to capture Baba alive.

Rahul Khanna

Director Vikram Bhatt returns this time round with an action/crime thriller which has been shot extensively in Europe.

Locations such as Mumbai, Goa, Venice and Munich have been used as we get subjected to some realistic car and boat chases and ambushes pure Hollywood style.

Trailers for this film, which are being screened in cinemas across the UK, have already enticed audiences with their slick editing and Hollywood style narration.

Elaan not only showcases the talents of Mithun but also introduces Rahul Khanna in a Bollywood commercial film after crossover movies like 1947 Earth and Bollywood Hollywood.

This film is expected to release in January 2005 by Venus Entertainment, London.
