Storyline

Shankar lives in a remote village in rural India with his mother and sister, Manju, and drives a horse-carriage for a living. The main employer in the region is a kind-hearted businessman Maganlal. When Maganlal announces that he would like to undertake a religious pilgrimage, his son, Kundan, takes over and wants to cut back on labor and mechanize the business - thus leading to loss in jobs. He also introduces a bus thus taking away business from the horse-carriage drivers. This angers the community and they ask Kundan to reconsider, and he flats refuses - but agrees to withdraw the bus provided Shankar races it with his horse-carriage. Watch the action unfold as Shankar unites a divided village, and how he sets about to keep his faith in winning this race between man and machine. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Terrific performances
8 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie brings together the histrionic talents of Dilip Kumar and Vyjayanthimala. Made with a very strong social theme that was very relevant to its time, this movie boasts a brisk narrative, evocative performances and an unforgettable soundtrack by O.P. Nayyar. From "Mai Bambai ka Babu", to the patriotic "Yeh desh hai veer jawanon ka" to "Maang ke Saath Tumhara" set to the clip clops of the horse, every number is a collector's item.

Watch out for legendary villain Ajit, "saara shehar jise loin ke naam se jaanta hai", who turns in a great performance as Krishna, the bosom buddy of Shankar (Dilip Kumar). A throughly enjoyable classic from BR Chopra.
