Aar Ya Paar is a 1997 Bollywood action-thriller directed by Ketan Mehta and starring Jackie Shroff, Deepa Sahi, and Ritu Shivpuri. The movie revolves around a corrupt police officer, Inspector Vijay Khanna (Jackie Shroff), who is tasked with solving a murder case. The murder victim is a wealthy businessman, Mr. Verma, and the suspects are his wife, his children, and his business partner. As Inspector Khanna delves deeper into the investigation, he encounters a femme fatale named Reshma (Deepa Sahi) who has her own agenda. She becomes his ally and together, they try to unravel the mystery behind Mr. Verma's death.

The movie opens with a car chase scene where Inspector Khanna is pursuing a group of criminals who have stolen a precious diamond. After a thrilling chase, he manages to catch the culprits and recover the diamond. This sets the tone for the rest of the movie, which is full of action, suspense, and unexpected twists.

The murder case that Inspector Khanna is assigned to solve is complicated by the fact that every suspect has a motive for killing Mr. Verma. His wife, Chitra (Ritu Shivpuri), has been unhappy in their marriage and is having an affair with his business partner, Rai Bahadur (Paresh Rawal). Verma's two children, Pooja and Rohan, are both greedy and want to inherit his wealth. To make matters worse, all the suspects have alibis that seem to be foolproof.

As Inspector Khanna and Reshma investigate further, they discover that things are not as they seem. There is more to the murder case than meets the eye, and they must race against time to uncover the truth before another murder occurs. Along the way, they encounter several obstacles, including dangerous criminals who will stop at nothing to protect their secrets.

What sets Aar Ya Paar apart from other Bollywood movies of its time is its use of Western-style filmmaking techniques. The movie incorporates elements of film noir, with its dark and moody lighting and its complex characters. The music is also noteworthy, with a mix of Hindi and English songs that add to the overall ambiance of the movie.

Jackie Shroff delivers a powerful performance as Inspector Khanna, the tough and street-smart cop who will do whatever it takes to solve the case. Deepa Sahi, as Reshma, brings a touch of glamour to the movie and is the perfect foil to Inspector Khanna's gruff demeanor. Ritu Shivpuri is convincing as the unhappy wife who is caught in a web of lies and deceit.

Overall, Aar Ya Paar is a well-executed thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It has everything that one expects from a Bollywood movie – romance, action, drama, and music – but it also has a sophistication and style that sets it apart from the rest. If you are a fan of crime thrillers, then Aar Ya Paar is definitely worth a watch.
