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)

Action Suspense Thriller
19 July 2010 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

It is the first & last movie of Jeetendra & Anitabh together, when the movie was released Jeetendra was a already a established actor & given several hits, while Amitabh was struggling, Gehri Chaal was a master piece suspense thriller that time, script was very superb,while action scenes were very well composed specially Jeetendra Jeep entering into truck through wheeled ramp, gun fights in Prem Chopra's den, Jeetendra looks dynamic in big eye glasses, he has done brilliant as CID officer role, he is a all rounder performer, Hema too acted well & looks glamorous, While Amitabh looks not so good his physique was not too good as Jeetendra & even the dressing sense that of Amitabh was very poor, Acting wise he is good, Prem Chopra gives his good performance as Main Vallian, Bindu as vamp too good, Gehri Chaal must a watch movie for those who like action suspense thriller type movies.
