Risk is a 2007 Bollywood film directed by Vishram Sawant. It stars Randeep Hooda, Vinod Khanna, Tanushree Dutta, Zakir Hussain, Yashpal Sharma and Anant Jog in the lead roles. The movie is based on the Mumbai underworld. Randeep Hooda plays the role of an honest cop, Suryakant Satam, fighting against the might of a Bangkok-based don (crime lord) Khalid Bin Jamal, played by Vinod Khanna.
For years, Khalid Bin Jamal has ruled the Mumbai crime underworld by staying in Bangkok, Thailand. Despite his distance from Mumbai, Khalid is able to control his Mumbai empire through keeping his the ruling members of his network very close to him. He is also ruthless and shows no hesitation to his enemies.
The Indian police has been trying for years to extradite Khalid to India but in vain. Suryakant has been on the police force a few years and has been keeping track of Khalid’s activities. He makes up his mind to put an end to Khalid’s criminal empire and bring Khalid himself to justice. To do so, he starts carrying out encounters against Jamal’s henchmen. Over the course of a few weeks, Khalid’s network suffers as his men are simply killed in encounters and raids by Suryakant.
Khalid becomes increasingly alarmed but comes up with a counter-plan. He arranges for one of his leading associates, the politician Devki Wardhan, to be attacked while Suryakant is arresting her. Her opponent, the home minister A.R. Sarang (Anant Jog), has been known to be in favour with Suryakant and is blackmailed by Khalid into opening fire on Devki Wardhan. This implicates Suryakant as being an accomplice to Devki Wardhan’s attempted murder. Soon, a string of allegations that include taking bribes from different crime lords is formed against Suryakant. His plan to capture Khalid with bold moves thus backfires because of Khalid’s premeditated scheme.
In jail, Suryakant receives messages from Khalid. His image tarnished, Suryakant is offered his police officer position by Khalid as long as he does his bidding. He is also handsomely rewarded. Suryakant starts working energetically for Khalid and wipes out Khalid’s enemies. Arbaaz (played by Yashpal Sharma), Khalid’s brother, travels to India to personally deal with Khalid’s sworn enemy, S.P. Naidu. Naidu is killed by Arbaaz but suddenly Suryakant reveals his true colours by killing Arbaaz and home minister Sarong and making it seem like Arbaaz had murdered Sarong.
