Honest and diligent Deepak Varma is framed for murder, he claims he did not commit. The Public Prosecutor, G.D. Thakral, while aware of his innocence, does nothing, and Deepak is hanged. His widowed wife goes to G.D. Thakral for assistance, but is instead humiliated, in the presence of her child, Arun. She runs away, and subsequently loses her mind, and no one knows about her whereabouts. Years later, Arun has grown up, studied law, and is now practicing law, and assisting people who cannot afford a lawyer. When he is approached by Geeta Mathur, to represent her brother, Dinesh Mathur, he initially refuses, but then reconsiders and is successful in this case. He then meets with G.D. Thakral, and memories which have haunted him for years, return, and Arun decides to wage war against Thakral, not knowing that in so doing, he may himself be entrapped as his father was.

High Emotions Drama
19 April 2006 | by (Multan) – See all my reviews

"People don't like warring with words" crowed a film magazine from 1985. This assertion gave me the impression that the movie would be replete with verbal wars between the contesting advocates in the court. However when I rented the movie to verify the claim, it had a little legal war, and that too was a bit stereotypical. The movie, however, had its other rewards to offer. A simple, no-nonsense plot about the woes of the family of a wrongly executed man, this film for the most part matches the reaction to the action with minimal overacting. The culminating scene wherein Anil Kapoor, apart from rescuing his mother, gives vent to his pent up feelings of righteous anguish and indignation against the vile acts of Amreesh Puri due to which he had to lead all his life in bitterness -- physical and mental -- is the highlight of the movie in my opinion. In this emotional tirade, we the viewers, have emotions exactly like a person would have, who has been victimised thus. This sympathy of emotions is the biggest achievement of this film. The music of the film is more than just good, specially the theme song, "Zindagi har qadam ik nai jang hai.." which is yet another spellbinding creation of Laxmikant- payarelal duo.
