Storyline

Honest truck driver Balwant watch helplessly as the owners of the trucking company he works for mauled his brother, Jaswant to death. When he lodges a complaint with the police the inspector instead arrest him for this crime; the trucking company owners then burn his house killing his pregnant wife Sumati. Years later Balwant who now calls himself Karamvir operates a court called 'Teesri Adalat' by sentencing wrong-doers to death in a judge and executer style. However he is unaware that Sumati is still alive and has given birth to twins Rajesh and Mahesh; while Mahesh was separated at birth and grows up with Inspector Ram Avtar and his wife - Rajesh is taking care of his mother as she loses her mental balance in the trauma. Rajesh and Mahesh do get to unite as the girls they are in love with are link to each other. After a few misjudgments of situations at hand Rajesh and Mahesh decides that they will bring Teesri Adalat to the court of law - at any cost. Written by gavin (racktoo@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.
