About Vaastav

Vaastav is a 1999 Hindi crime drama written and directed by Mahesh Manjrekar and starring Sanjay Dutt and Namrata Shirodkar. It also features Sanjay Narvekar, Mohnish Behl, Paresh Rawal, Reema Lagoo and Shivaji Satam in supporting roles.

"The Reality" as described by the film's tagline, refers to the harsh realities of life in the Mumbai underworld. The film is said to be loosely based on the life of Mumbai underworld gangster Chota Rajan.

The film was well received by both critics and audiences and is often regarded by many as one of Sanjay Dutt's best performances. The film was extremely successful both in India and overseas. It was nominated for and won many awards. Over the years it has become a cult film.

The film was followed by the 2002 Sanjay Dutt starrer Hathyar.

Vaastav opens with a family performing the annual rites of a dead person on the beach. When the young son of the deceased asks his grandmother all about the deceased, she begins to narrate the story.

As the film opens, Raghunath Namdev Shivalkar or "Raghu" (Sanjay Dutt) and his best friend Dedh Footiya (Sanjay Narvekar) (literally meaning "One and a half feet tall" in Hindi) struggle to find work in Mumbai.Raghu lives in the mumbai suburbs with his retired father (Shivaji Satham), mother(Reema Lagoo) and banker brother (Mohnish Behl). They decide to run a pav bhaji stall. But fate steps in when Raghu and Dedh Footiya accidentally kill a customer who turns out to be the brother of a notorious gangster, Fracture Bandya. Now on the run, the two of them soon end up killing Fracture Bandya and his men also, when the latter tries to find them and kill them both treacherously by arranging a meeting through Suleiman Bhai(Paresh Rawal), a middle man in the Mumbai underworld. Raghu and Dedh footiya now end up in the Mumbai underworld.
