Surendra Nath and Satyendra Nath are two brothers who live in an old palatial home with their dad, mom, and sister. The Nath family is undergoing hard times as their property is under dispute, and a unfavorable decision by the courts, causes the family to lose face in the community. To make matters worse, Satyendra is arrested by the police for theft of Rs.10,000/- from his workplace. Satyendra thinks his brother stole the money, and is covering up for him, while the rest of the family is shocked and dismayed at this turn of events. All eyes and ears are now on the decision of the Court, which will decide who is guilty in the eyes of the law. Written by rAjOo (

Hum Hindustani..... Chodo Kal Ki Baatein.....
15 January 2014 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

Perhaps one of my all time favorite songs "Chodo Kal Ki Baatein," the film begins with this song and delves into the main message of the film which still holds true at the present time. The film inspires the youth to be energetic and fight for their present and don't accept to become the victim of prejudice which has been depicted through a beautiful story of two brothers played by Sunil Dutt and Joy Mukherjee, who have hard times to save their properties and fend the family; but despite all the difficulties, the brothers fight for their place in the world.

The simplicity with which the story has been narrated makes the film impressive. There are villains in the film, but they appear common men in the screen. The best thing of the film is all the characters appear natural and are down to the earth. Even the protagonists appear with their arrogance and make mistakes. The music and photography bring the essence of the film and performances are worth praising. Sunil Dutt and Joy Mukherhjee both give outstanding performances, but I felt Joy Mukherjee did a better job. So can be said about the female pair Helen and Asha Parekh. Overall, a classic which would entertain you is what I have to say about this film.
