Storyline

Samir Sahni is a farmer living with his mom, dad, wife, Rama, a young daughter, and his younger brother, Veer. Samir gets an offer to work in the U.K., and departs accordingly. He would like to settle there, and after doing so, would like his family to also join him. The years go by, and Samir keeps in touch with his family regularly. Then the Sahni family stop receiving any letters from him, and are anxious to know what has happened to him. Veer is asked to travel to U.K. to find out, and he does so. What he finds are tens of thousands of East Indians on fake passports, working for less than minimum wages, poor unhealthy conditions, fear of being deported, and paying half of their earnings to fellow East Indians who had got them here through the underground. Veer finds no sign of his brother, and sets out to investigate, only to find deceit, murder, and his very own life in danger. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Devanand's last blockbuster
19 September 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This was Devanand's last blockbuster film at the box office. This film deals with the issue of illegal immigration which was quite a burning issue back in the 70s. It also serves to introduce Tina Munim on the silver screen.

Devanand, though growing old, still manages to give a capable performance aided well by the debutante Tina Munim and Prem Chopra.

Songs are good to listen to and some are beautifully choreographed like "Nazrana Laya Hai pyaar ka".

Though this film is not the best of Devanand's films, still it is one of the better ones.
