Storyline

Ram Avtar, a barber in a small village, comes from a poor family, widowed, but has his wife's sister, Sushma, looking after him and his kids. Ram Avtar cuts, shaves, and grooms all males in his village, including Minister Digvijay Singh. When Digvijay's political party is in need of someone to stand in the forthcoming election, Digvijay recommends Ram Avtar as his choice. Ram Avtar accepts this challenge, and then begins the race of getting votes. To his surprise, he wins, and goes on to become a Member of the Legislative Assembly. Sushma watches from the sidelines as to how the changes affect this simple-minded and straight-forward barber. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Remake
26 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie was a hurriedly made remake. The movie had Rajesh Khanna the superstar as its central character. The movie was a better movie than the political movies made then - Inquilaab and Yeh Desh but suffered may be due to the fact that it had all the negatives of a movie made in a hurry. The dialogues, screenplay were hurriedly written and could have been made better. Bappi Lahiri's music is not jarring. Shabna Azmi puts in a good performance but Shatrughan Sinha screams his way in the movie and looks a misfit. The characters are loose but Rajesh Khanna the Superstar fresh from his success of Avataar tries to hold the ground. A good remake which suffered due to its hurried release. Otherwise a good watch for Rajesh Khanna fans, He has done justice to his role - from a barber to a Chief Minister. This movie shows his class. A true Super Star ACTOR.
