Jo Bole So Nihaal (also transliterated as Jo Bole So Nihal; literally meaning "Whoever utters shall be fulfilled") is a 2005 Bollywood action comedy film, directed by Rahul Rawail. It stars Sunny Deol, Shillpi Sharma and Kamaal Khan in lead roles, whilst Nupur Mehta and Surekha Sikri appear in major supporting roles; the director also plays an antagonistic role in the film. Singer Kamaal Khan appeared first time on big screen in a negative role. This movie was his debut movie as actor.
The film's release was met by protests from Sikh groups, who took offense at its use of a Sikh religious phrase as its title, as well as scenes in which a Sikh police officer is shown being chased by scantily-clad women. Two bomb attacks on 22 May 2005 on theatres in New Delhi showing the film killed one person and injured 49, prompting cinema owners to pull the film, in some cases voluntarily and in some states as a result of a government order.
Nihaal Singh (Sunny Deol) is an honest and beloved constable from Punjab.
A chance encounter with the criminal Romeo Kamaal Khan changes his life forever. Romeo is an unstoppable mercenary who moves from country to country in a wave of terror. When Nihaal Singh unwittingly aids the terrorist in his escape, Nihaal is labeled a traitor. He finds himself suspended from his job, ridiculed, and hated by his village.
Meanwhile, Romeo has taken his merciless campaign to New York City. Intelligence reports reveal that Romeo has entered the US in a plot to kill the President. Now, FBI are desperate to find Romeo, but the villain is a man without a face and therefore invisible. The only person who knows what the menace looks like is Nihaal Singh.
The FBI recruits Nihaal Singh to come to New York and aid them in capturing Romeo. Guided by bilingual FBI Agents Bhatnagar (Thomas Tevana) and Kaur (Shilpi Mudgal) among others, Nihaal hunts Romeo for the safety of America. He asks for one thing in return of Romeo's capture: to bring the villain to his hometown in Punjab, thereby clearing his name and restoring his former glory.
