underrated Bachchan classic
17 February 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is much better than many people think. Story : Amitabh is a simpleton in a village with a wife, Waheeda Rehman, and a sister. 3 guys from the city come (Anwar Hussain, Sujit Kumar and another one) andtell Bachchan to come to the city and they will help him. Bachchan and Waheeda get a son and movie to the city where the 3 guys rape his sister, sent Amitabh to jail and much more happens to him. Emotionally devastated Amitabh kills them and becomes an underworld don. Years later the son, Amitabh again, wants to marry his girlfriend Neetu Singh. That when things take a turn. Watch out for an yet unknown Kadar Khan as inspector Khan who wants to arrest bachchan senior but is also his friend as he has seen the transformation in Bachchan happen in front of his eyes. One of the few movies in which not Kishore but Mukesh sings for Bachchan. And the songs are known till date " Humka aisa waisa na samjho" , " Kung Fu" and the classic " Behna o Behna Teri Doli Main" are some of the songs. A tearjerker!
