Storyline

Compassionate Jailer Adinath refuses to document an attack on him by an inmate, Kishan, and instead permits him to see his children. He is then granted permission through the IG as well as the Jail Superintendent to rehabilitate six hardened convicts - all serving life sentences for single and multiple homicides. Amongst them are Veeru Choudhry - for killing his wife; Tamana Bildar for killing a relative; Goshai Kesavgiri for killing two young children; Jalia Nai for cutting the throat of a Sahukar; bandit Shankar Passi who had killed a Zamindar, as well as Kishan himself. He takes them to an isolated house on a plot of barren land, and this is where he expects them to cultivate it, grow crops and make a living. Challenges commence from day one when the Cook, ironically named Bahadur, quits in fear, and Adinath is compelled to cook for everyone. He permits Kishan to see his two children, Govinda and Gopal, as well as his aged, near-blind mother, and even permits the children to live ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Great movie.
2 January 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie which touches the hearts of the viewers.Actually, I wanted to watch this film only because this film is said to be to be one of the best ones directed by V.Shantaram. A simple story well presented with good performances by all the actors. The music is good and the best song is undoubtedly the "Ai Malik,tere bandhe hum". The film is all about how a young jailer reforms 6 hardcore criminals without using any sorts of violence. The film scores primarily in the sentimental part,especially in the climax.The major plus point of the film is that it never bores you even for a minute.Easily,one of the best films made in Hindi.
