Sadak Movie 1991 recap –
The movie was a romance-thriller, where a taxi driver, Ravi (Sanjay Dutt) falls in love with a sex worker, Pooja (Pooja Bhatt). She’s employed by an evil pimp, Maharani, who runs a brothel, and despite her attempts to break free from there, is unable to do so. Meanwhile, Ravi has a traumatic past where his sister had run off with her lover, but he sold her to a brothel; and the former committed suicide on learning she contracted a sexually transmitted disease. This leads to frequent nightmares for Ravi.
Parallelly his friend, Gotya (Deepak Tijori) is in love with another sex worker at the same brothel, Chanda (Neelima Azeem). While Ravi begins spending time with Pooja by ‘paying’ for her for the night simply to spend time with her, Maharani figures out what’s happening and allows him to continue visiting, only if he uses Pooja for sex work. This leads to Ravi and Gotya fleeing from the brothel, with their love interests. Then a fight between these four and the brothel begins, with a betrayal by a police inspector whom Ravi trusted, which leads to the death of Gotya and Chanda. Finally, Ravi and Pooja find justice by burning down the brothel, him doing the jail time for taking law in his hands, and them reuniting for good after all of this.
