Storyline

Bhrastachar tells the story of a disparate group of characters whose lives overlap- Bhavani, a journalist fighting injustice and corruption; Janki a widow who becomes the mistress of local hoodlum Fatte to save her blind daughter; Inspector Ashutosh, to whom Bhavani entrusts Janki's safety and who maintains that even the police can take no action against Fatte, because politicians need hoodlums to remain in power; Purushottam, Fatte's political godfather who tries to win votes by promising the people a fair and an ideal government and Sattar, who, although himself a Don of the underworld, is not a vicious and depraved person like Purushottam and tries to help Bhavani.

Watchable
22 November 2011 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Ramesh Sippy after making Sholay and Shaan the super hits of the 70's just like Manmohan Desai came to average movies but MKD gave disasters while Sippy gave flops. Bhrashtachar is an example of a bad movie but because I'm not like other whiney reports complaining about all Hindi movies doing bad, I give it a 5/10- Watchable. The movie has no new story but it is based on India's corrupt government and current problems. Because it is a movie in the late 80's, its not that bad. The movie has no realism because of girls like Rekha fighting with her fists. There are some really corny and weird scenes. However, the movie is still good because of its action. The dialogues are good, the powerful expressions and the action scenes are top class. Actors are bad but Rekha saves the day. Overall, an average watchable movie.
