    Vidhu Vinod Chopra's "Parinda" weaves an intricate plot that deals with the underworld's overpowering capacity to destroy ordinary dreams and pleasures of city residents. Karan ( Anil Kapoor) returns from America after completing his education, full of dreams and romantic feelings for his childhood sweetheart Paro ( Madhuri Dixit). These dreams are shattered when Anna( Nana Patekar), the eccentric underworld don, gets Prakash, a police officer ( Anupam Kher), killed, when he meets Karan at a favourite spot from their shared child childhood. Kishen ( Jackie Shroff), who works for Anna, tries to dissuade his brother Karan from appearing as a witness. Unable to work through the law, Karan gets involved with Anna and strikes a deal with a rival don to kill the rhree men responsible for Prakash's death. Subsequently, Karan marries Paro and decides to leave the city for their village. On their wedding night, Anna kills Paro and Karan. Unable to save his brother's life, Kishen finally kills Anna. The ordinariness of " Parinda"'s revenge plot is energized by a complex evocation of a space to show urban terror. " Parinda" does not use many location shots ; instead, the limited use of space is fragmented further through a skillful editing pattern. Parinda's Mumbai is fragmented into dark, morbid spaces with all characters framed within a light and shadow zone. The film is brilliantly scripted with convincing dialoges. Themes of loss, nostalgia, lack of clearr priorites and insecurites are presented primarily through mannerisms and style. Anna 's mannerisms are peculiar and his eccenricity and madness are linked to a taumatic event, the burning of his wife and child. As for acting, Nana has left an abiding impression. As psychomaniac he is superb. His cruelty, inhumanity have been compounded with hoax and pretext. As a typical villain he is unparellal. Jackie as the affectionate elder brother is brilliant. "Parinda" has displayed Anil Kapoor outrightly different. He is jolly in the beginning but revengeful. Madhuri Dixit has proned her worth umers.. R. D. has presented some melodiaous numbers. M
