Storyline

Inspector Ashok Sharma is assigned to take over as Inspector In-Charge of a remote police station, which he does. Upon his arrival there, he comes to the rescue of a blind man and a widow, and has a fist fight with Nishikant Shah and his men. The next day, Shah finds out that the person his men fought with is no other than the new Inspector In-charge, and he goes to pay homage, but Ashok refuses. Then Shah and the local MLA spin a web of lies and deceit, in which Ashok is accused of killing a man in custody, and as a result he may face criminal charges and also lose his job.

Rajesh Khanna has mostly been branded in the press & media as a romantic star. But the fact is he has experimented in various kinds of roles even in his earlier days. His very first film - "Aakhri Khat" - had him playing a father on the lookout for his on.

He played a double role in his 2nd film raaz. His film - Baharon Ke Sapne - championed the cause of labor. His Ittefaq was a song less film

  • a rarity even today.




He played a hero without a heroine in Anand & Baawrachi, something which other actors never dared to do.

He played a man caught between 2 wives in Daag, a psychopath killer in Red Rose.

No other star took this kind of risk in Hindi cinema.

In Shatru, also, this trend continues. This film has no heroine, something which is unthinkable. It primarily portrays the relationship between a man & a boy.

Rajesh Khanna's performance is excellent. On one hand he shows his toughness as a police officer & on the other, his scenes with the little boy will bring tears.

He has been well supported by Prem Chopra. Their combination has clicked mostly & this is no exception.

The director deserves special mention for making such an offbeat film.

It did fairly well at the box office.
