Storyline

Jhanga (Ajit) is a cruel, brutal, and heartless dacait, who has terrorized the entire countryside. The police are unable to capture him, as he has several hideouts and nearby villagers are afraid to give out any informaiton, fearing the reprisal of his wrath. A black cloaked horseback rider (Feroz Khan) is looking for Jhanga, to avenge the death of his dad, a judge (Satyen Kappu) who had convicted and sentenced Jhanga, however, whenever he comes close, Jhanga manages to escape. Then five men, all petty criminals, come to claim the reward for handing over Jhanga to the police. These five men do not trust the horseback rider, and will not have anything to do with him. While these men waste time who gets to Jhanga first, Jhanga is safe in his hideout, planning more attacks on the hapless community. Will Jhanga ever be apprehended?

This is the exciting story of those five adventurous young men !!
4 April 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

False currency is the current currency in our society. This is the exciting story of those five adventurous young men who earn there livelihood in the city by doing all kinds of odd and unusual jobs. All five of them are strikingly different five specimens of humanity. Each one of them is a master of his own peculiar art. Each one of them has a unique style but they are all together.

Dacoit Junga's exploits have created panic and terror in the village. He commits the murder of Ramu's father. Ramu travels alone from the city to the village to bring his cousin Jaggu to the city. Jaggu happens to be one of those five "fake coins". All five of them, after mutual consultation. Plan to go to Ramu's village. These happy-go-lucky five young men have their first encounter with Jaggu's brother and associates at the premises of the singing-dancing girl Rani. After the encounter, these five are rewarded with prizes which the police had announced for anyone who could deal with these Dacoits. With that prize money, they buy weapons to ensure the safety and security of the village. One of them, Feroze Khan obsessed with the idea of avenging his father's murder, shadows Junga day and night. There is a soft corner in his heart for the girl named Rani. In the village Feroze Khan clashes with these five young men but ultimately he also joins them for the pursuit of a common goal. But Feroze has taken a decision that he alone will square his account with Junga and will not allow anyone else to settle the score for him.

Having settled in the village, these five young men now channelize all their activities in the service of the village community. The village people and the head man of the village ultimately stand bail for these five young men and plead with the authorities that they be given a chance to reform themselves. After reformation, these five young men become the finest assets of the village and the five "fake coins" of the city turn into genuine gold for the village. The teenage widowed daughter-in-law of the head man of the village spends he life with her little child, groaning under the cruel treatment in the house of her mother-in-law Jaggu succeeds in welcoming her one day into his arm and the shelter of his love. These five young men band up to work against the Dacoits in the interest of the village. After uniting the villages, these five young men put up a bold fight with the Dacoits.

How far they succeed and to what extent their courage and idealism is able to thwart the conspiracy of the Dacoits forms the thrilling climax that is the very soul of "KHOTTE SIKKE".
