The movie tells the story of two brothers, Vijay and Ravi Verma, who follow different career paths: Vijay is a smuggler and Ravi the policeman who is asked to hunt Vijay down. Vijay Verma (Amitabh Bachchan) and Ravi Verma (Shashi Kapoor) are the sons of a trade unionist, Anand Verma(Satyen Kappu), who was defeated and disgraced by the management of his firm using his family as bait. Unable to bear the public disgrace father deserts the family, and the sons are raised by their mother(Nirupa Roy)who brings them to Bombay City, who suffers the trials and tribulations of a poor single mother. Vijay Verma, the elder brother, grows up with an acute awareness of his father's humiliation and is victimized for his father's supposed misdeeds. In the process of fighting for his rights Vijay, who starts out as a boot polisher and becomes a dockyard worker in his youth, becomes a smuggler and a leading figure of the underworld.

What can you say about it!!
12 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What can you say about Deewar. There are some movies you watch and you remember them for your life. They are art work (not an art film). It is just pleasant to watch them again and again. I miss the count how many times I have seen Deewar and every time it is fresh.

Movies like Deewar, Kalia, Sholay, Mukaddar ka Sikendar, Silsila, Anand, Shaan, ... no matter how hard you try, but you just cant get bored with them.

Amitabh's performance (not because he got award for it) is simply great. That way Big B is truly Big B .. no doubt about that. But such movies make him even greater.

A must watch!!
