David is an old prisoner, released after twenty-four years in a penitentiary for a crime he hasn't committed. The three men who framed him and sent him away, are now prominent citizens of his town. David walks out of the prison straight into a confessional booth at his church. He tells the priest that he is about to kill three prominent men, for which he seeks God's pardon in advance. He must find his old friend, bootlegger and the custodian of David's only son. David had believed in his friend to bring up his son as the worst criminal and seek revenge from the men who put him away. On meeting him, David finds that his son is a Cop instead. Devastated, David continues on his own. When he is about to kill the three men, his son has vowed to protect the citizens under any circumstances. David and his son are at war, personally and the smarter of the duo would win. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


As the original screenplay was translated into Hindi and the director didn't know Hindi. Every morning, Amitabh Bachchan would go through the script and ask the director to deliver the dialogs in Tamil so that he would understand whether the emotion had been conveyed properly in Hindi. The director used to emote all the scenes for the benefit of the others. See more »

Revenge at its Fullest !
21 January 2009 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Amitabh has done a good job, in the father role (David), although he is shown aged and with a rugged beard. Amitabh always outperforms in angry, emotionally charged and frantically suspenseful roles. While portraying anguished roles in tough situations ridden with crises and brazen suspense, Amitabh is second to none.

His dialogue delivery and screen presence is a feast for the eyes when he utters the deep rooted words with stoic vengeance bursting from his moist smoldering eyes. He has always excelled in melodramatic and angry scenes which happens to be the culmination of his acting prowess.

With Dewaar, Sholay, Shakti and Kabhi Kabhi(to a lessor extent), this movie qualifies to be a must see picture, with all the suspense which would defy Alfred Hitchcock's effects and all the melodrama which would overshadow the skills of William Wyler.
