Storyline

Naive, illiterate Bhola Nath lives in a small village in India, which has yet to receive electricity. Bhola is helpful to everyone around him, and even speaks out against the local politician, Chatriprasad. Perturbed by this, Chatriprasad first accedes to all of Bhola's demands, and then asks him to re-locate to Bombay, and find employment with a former villager named Jagganath Tripathi, to which Bhola agrees. Upon arrival, Bhola is welcomed by Jagganath, and is even hired to escort young women to meet with their brothers. Bhola enthusiastically takes on this opportunity and works diligently to earn the respect of everyone around him. During the course of his duties, he meets with a beautiful woman named Roopali, and it is then slowly it dawns on Bhola about the true nature of his duties - that a pimp. But will this realization be enough for Bhola to reverse the regression in order to redeem himself? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A Classic!
22 January 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Partho Ghosh's 'Dalaal' is one of the finest entertainers from the mid 90's. It was a Mega Blockbuster at the box office, when it released in 1993.

Performances: Mithun Chakraborty is my all-time favorite actor, he gives a stunning performance once again. Raj Babbar delivers a hilarious performance. Tinu Anand also excels in here, Shakti Kapoor causes hatred, yet performs superbly.

Songs: The Songs are awesome in the movie, though mostly all of them with double meaning.

'Dalaal' is an amazing watch...

Don't miss 'Dalaal', catch it as soon as possible.

'Dalaal' a 1993 classic hit.
