Storyline

Surjit Singh earns his living driving a truck, most of the time while consuming alcohol. One night he stops at Courtesan Chamelibai's, drinks, goes to bed with her, and gets up behind schedule, so he rushes out, drives his truck and accidentally kills a farmer named Ram Din. He is arrested by the police, charged, and brought before the courts. The Judge finds him guilty and sentences him the maximum time under the Indian Penal Code for 100 years - with a difference, he is not to spend time in jail but must labor to look after the surviving family members of Ram Din, which include his widow, Malti; his sister, Kamla; two young sons; a crippled father Ganga Din and his blind wife. A horrified Surjit attempts to convince the Judge to change his ruling, but in vain and he is transported to his new penitentiary where he meets with hostile villagers who would rather kill him than let him toil on their sacred land. But with police protection, he is permitted to go to Ganga Din's house, where... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Fantastic Movie!
7 October 2006 | by (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

DUSHMUN featuring once again the hit-lead Rajesh Khanna and Mumtaz is simply excellent. Based on a village this movie has everything to offer for instance melodrama and emotions by Meena Kumari, romance between Rajesh Khanna and Mumtaz, excellent soundtrack by Laxmikant Pyarelal, some powerful dialogues, comedy by Johnny Walker and fine cinematography.

Rajesh Khanna plays a truck driver who kills Meena Kumari's husband on an accident by his truck and the judge punishes him to serve Meena Kumari's family for few years. Then the story takes a beautiful turn. Will the family be able to live with a man who has killed their father? How will everything resolve? Will the driver be able to make them understand that it was just an accident not a murder? How does he help them? You must watch it to find out.

The chemistry between the lead pair is superb. They fight, they get romantic and sing some beautiful songs penned by Anand Bakshi after falling in love.

I would rate it as 9.8/10.
