Jan Nissar Akhtar Khan works as a Forest Officer, and lives with his wife Zakhiya. One day while on duty he comes across some poachers who were cutting sandal wood trees illegally. When challenged, they retaliate, a struggle ensues, and one of them, Ram Gupta, gets killed. Khan is charged with killing him, tried in Court, and sentenced to several years in prison. His shocked and devastated wife kills herself. Years later, an angry and embittered Khan is released from prison. One day he comes across another young man, Vijay Singh, and finds out that he is struggling with taking vengeance against two men who had traumatized and killed some of his family members, and decides to help him. It is then Khan finds out that Gupta is still alive and decides to kill him, quite dramatically in the same courtroom where he was convicted for his murder. Watch how this action will effect Khan's future, and Vijay's plan for avenging his family. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Amitabh too small role
11 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

ANDHAA KANOON(1983) the movie is remembered as a Bachchan film, the posters, promos everything show Bachchan in main lead but the film has him in a guest appearance

The main story is a revenge saga about crime done to Rajni- Hema's family and how Rajni seeks revenge and Hema tries to stop him from taking law in his hands

Amitabh's story is a sub plot but is most remembered for it The contrioversial Andhaa Kanoon dialogues, or the title track all are memorable

Surprisingly the villain's names are AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY The film does keep you on edge to know how Rajni will kill all of them but the handling is too filmy at times especially the murder scenes There is a funny accident joke towards the end which is too stupid Every time Rajni has to run from jail, a plan is hatched and Dharmendra(in a guest role) and Bachchan meet with an accident or something The climax is too clichéd and unjustified

Direction is okay in parts but at times too melodramatic Music is okay Amitabh has a brief role and he does well in his role He is at his best in the court scene, but his role could've more substance towards the end Rajni has the main role and he does it in his own style though he overdoes it in many scenes, also the red eye scenes are too much Hema is good, Reena Roy is okay Amongst rest Pran is good, Danny hams, Prem Chopra is as usual Amrish Puri is as usual in a small role Om Shivpuri is adequate
