Storyline

Dharamchand is the Chair of Olympic Bank, which is due for a final audit by the 30th of the month. Shortly thereafter, his daughter, Hema, finds his dead body in his bedroom. She phones her brother, Ratan, who arrives, finds a suicide note in his dad's room, clarifying that he had embezzled 20 lakhs from the bank, is unable to repay it, and hence is killing himself. Ratan decides to protect the good name of the family and does not tell anyone about the suicide note to anyone, including Hema. Shortly thereafter, Ratan is approached by a blackmailer named Shekhar, who threatens to expose Ratan's secret if Ratan does not participate in a bank robbery that will take place two days before the final audit. Ratan assists him, the robbery takes place, the money is looted, all bank records are burnt, and the robbers make a successful getaway. Ratan is relieved that his problem has been resolved and the family name is not tarnished. The only problem is that Hema saw the robbers in action, and ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Amitabh before Zanjeer
5 October 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is one of the movie before Amitabh hit stardom He starred for the first time with Jeetendra and played brother to Hema

The film is a typical commercial film and it's like those films made in 1970's

Here we have grey shades to both characters in parts which you need to watch out for and perhaps the once in a lifetime achievement to watch Amitabh and Jeetu together

Direction is okay Music is okay

Amongst actors Amitabh does his part very well though there is a lot of rawness as Bachchan hadn't yet matured to the Bachchan of Deewaar or other films Jeetendra was good in his part though awkward in some Hema was decent Prem Chopra was excellent
