He gets up angrily and assaults the old woman, Ramvati, who was washing the floor. His abuse is interrupted by the arrival of Ramvati's son, Jeeva, who intervenes.

Last Dacoit!

In "Mother India", though the movie belonged to Nargis, Sunil Dutt (as he son), becomes a Dacoit. This role was hit and Sunil Datt revived role of Dacoit in "Mujhe Jeene Do". This was trend setter to Dacoit Movies. But this movie is made almost at end of the trend.

Amitabh Plays a poor villager, Birju who is made to become a dacoit courtacy evil Thakur, Amzad Khan. The movie is just a run of mill stuff. But, there are good performances by Amitabh Bachchan , Rekha and I S Jouhar.

The movie has a haunting melodious sound "Maano to main ganga maa hoon na maano to bahata paani...". And this song is the most memorable thing about the movie.

My rating is 7/10.
