Storyline

Master Dinanth (Amitabh Bachchan) is a freedom fighter and led the war against the British in 1942 and eventually won the independence in 1947. But after independence, the people's love for their country seems to be diminishing and they are too busy betraying it like rich businessman Thakur Pratab Singh (Amjad Khan). Masterji finds out about Thakur Pratab Singh's illegal activities such as smuggling of weapons and ammunition and gets him arrested. In revenge for putting him in prison, Pratab Singh gets Masterji's wife Bharati (Sharmila Tagore) and daughter Priti (Parveen Babi) kidnapped by Thakur's partner in crime Sher Singh (Kader Khan) to try and change his ways but to no avail. Thakur also provokes an attack on Masterji's home by the local villagers who accuse Dinanath of betraying his country and he is forced to flee his home with his young son Raju. His wife becomes a victim of leprosy and escapes from Sher Singh leaving her daughter Priti in a friend's care. Masterji is ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Chat with full Indian Massala
17 March 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Manmohan Desai, who in his earlier movies "Amar Akbar Anthony" and "Naseeb" introduced formula of "Hindu-Muslim-Christian unity", has gone beyond the formula. Here he has the formula for "east-west-north-south unity of India". Of course, he has his usual spice.

Dinanath (Amitabh) is a freedom fighter - married to Bharati (Sharmila Taigore). During the freedom struggle, though freedom is won but, he looses Bharati - who leaves as she is affected by leprosy. He is given shelter in Bharat Nagar - as four underworld dons of Bharat Nagar (representing east - great bengali actor Uttam Kumar - who died during filiming the movie and the rest of his role was played by hair dresser to Amitabh Bachchan), west (Parikshit Sahani), north (Shammi Kapoor) and south (Prem Nath)). However, his son (again played by Amitabh) right from childhood realizes that the dons are using his father's stay in Bharat Nagar to cover up their wrong doings. So he starts "hafta-wasooli" and grows up just opposite of his father. He is mistakenly married to Hema Malini while trying to run away from police hides behind "sehra" in a mass marriage ceremony organized by his "Father".

How the son and the Bharat Nagar is reformed that is rest of the story.

Lot of massala is there and that include Amitabh Bachchan mimicking his idol "Mehmood"!

Overall load of fun!
