Storyline

Shankar is a hoodlum who lives in a shanty hut with his pregnant wife, Kanta, and makes a living as a career criminal. He prays to Lord Shiv that if he is blessed with a male child, he will ensure that the child does not take to his path, but instead grows up to a decent and honest human being. His wife does give birth to a baby boy, and Shankar loots the ill-gotten gains of another hoodlum named J.K.. A furious J.K. hunts down Shankar in an attempt to abduct his son, but Shankar takes his child and switches him with one belonging to renowned stage artist, Ashok Kumar. Shankar gets into a scuffle with J.K. and his men, killing one of them, getting arrested, tried in Court, and being sentenced to 14 years in jail. Kanta passes away, while Dharam is left in the care of a wrestler, Bhim Singh, and a mid-wife, Ganga. Dharam is taught to be a hoodlum, but wants to focus on becoming a singer, while Ranjit has taken to alcohol, gambling, and a life of crime under J.K. himself. After his ...

A surprise piece of shoddy work coming from RK films
22 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

RK films known for their slightly higher standard films does a rarther miserable job of this film. directed by Raj Kapoors son Rhandir Kapoor, the film suffers in alot of places. the editing is not up to scratch and the story is plain rubbish. The idea of doing good deeds rather than being lured to the dark side of life is potrayed poorly. Rekha whose fashion sense in the film is rarther questionable acts well but is nothing special. though there is one thing good and that is the soundtrack of the film. especially one all time classic....
