Sunil Dutt is known well for doing Dacoit roles with the intensity of a lightning and this movie can be easily rated as not only his best but one of the top movies in Dacoit drama. Vahida looks gorgeous and carries emotional scenes with ease. Watch out for the song by lata " Tere bachpan ko jawani ki Dua Deti Hu' It is a classic. Some other interesting Dacoit dramas are "Mera Gaon Mera Desh" "Pratigya" "Sholay"
