Storyline

Madhukar and Jaggu are Hitler-like tyrants who rule over a small community with an iron hand. They prefer to keep the inhabitants illiterate, so that they can continue to oppress and abuse them over time. But one young lad, Ramu, educates himself secretly with the help of the local school-master, Srikanth. Years later, Ramu has grown up and is now a formidable force to reckon with. Madhukar and Jaggu see him as a threat and soon spin a web of lies and deceit around him, leaving him with no alternative except to retreat, leaving the poor villagers once again at their mercy of their oppressors.

A good social subject
27 April 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie has a good social subject and is about caste ism and monopoly in villages of India. The hero takes up the fight for the commoners and ultimately executes the tyrants. Rajesh Khanna the Super Star is the hero of the movie and is supported well by Sridevi, Jaya Prada and Padmini Kolhapore. Kader Khan plays the tyrant supported by Ranjeet. The movie is mounted well, good sets, good editing, good direction. The movie had above average music by Bappi Lahiri. This hit is a must see for Rajesh Khanna fans as he plays the role of the protagonist to perfection and puts up great performance. He is good in dance and action scenes also in the movie. Him dancing with young Sridevi is a treat to watch.
