Storyline

Balwant is a honest truck driver, who lives with his younger brother, Jaswant, and wife Sumati. Since his wife is expecting, he asks his Jaswant to drive the truck for him. Jaswant finds out that the truck is delivering smuggled and illicit goods, and refuses to drive it, and the owners of the trucking company and others beat him up, and eventually kill him. Balwant comes just in time to see his brother's assailants, and swears to bring them to justice. However, he himself is held by Inspector Amarnath for the homicide of his brother; his house is burned down by the trucking company owners; his wife is reportedly dead in the fire. Balwant escapes from prison and avenges his brother's death by severely maiming the truck company owners. Balwant continues to avenge the innocent, not through the rules of the corrupt police, lawyers, and an equally corrupt judicial system, but as judge and executioner, and calls himself "Teesri Adalat". All his sentences result in death. Years later, ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

excellent, brilliant - what more can i say?! Dharmendra, Sanjay, and Chunkey Pandey play excellent roles which truely give this film the edge!
1 January 2003 | by (London, Uk) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** A must see for all action and comic fans. An indian cross over of Batman, and other caped crusaders. Dharmendra plays the part of the caped crusader in this film 'Teesree Adalt' (third law). The story revovles around the life of Dharmendra, a poor, trustworthy Sikh Jatt (you can just about make out the picture of Guru Gobind Singh Ji in his house) married to a Hindu woman. And he has the job of all typical Sikh Jatts, a truck driver. He has three roles - Balwant Singh- the truck driver, a rich citizen, and Tesree Adalt. His brother is killed in fornt of his eyes and reporting to the police he finds himself behind bars as the inspector is part of the gang who kill Dharmendra's brother. To cover all possible clues the gang also burn down Dharmendra's house with his pregnant wife in it. But his Wife's friend is burned while his wife chucks herself out and is found by a couple who happen to be walking by. Dharmendra escapes prison and thinks his wife is burned to death and seeks revenge by cutting off the arm and leg of both leaders of the gang, and then runs away from it all. While this takes place Dharmendra's wife gives birth to twins, and is told that the police thinks Dharmendra is dead and so she leaves one child behind and runs off. This takes place some 20 years ago and in the present time Dharmendra is a rich citizen while his wife is a mad woman dependent on her eldest son Sanjay Dutt. Chunkey Pandey is the son of a police inspector not knowing he had been left by his mother. Dharmendra ahs sworn on his wife's and son's lifes(who he thinks are dead)that he will wipe out all gangsters who escape prison. The storyline is excellant, Chunkey Pandey helps his 'dad' catch criminals so he can be promoted (his number one priority is Tesree Adalt his own dad!) while Sanjay steals expensive jewellery off people for Shakti Kapoor so he can afford his mother's treatment which is only available in America. The end is an happy one, the family is reunited but Dharmendra goes to jail.
