A zamindar and his family called "The Sooryavansh family" of Bharathpur village has a God like image among the villagers. This generation is headed by Thakur Bhanupratap Singh. He has 3 sons, the youngest, Heera he considers to be the black sheep, and most illiterate of the family, and he will not have anything to do with him. Deshraj Thakur, a village badman goes to jail as a result of the judgement given by the Panchayat headed by Bhanu Pratap and ignoring his own misdeeds develops vengeance against Bhanu Pratap. Bhanupratap is enraged when Heera proposes to marry his ward, Gauri; and even more angered when Heera flip-flops, albeit at the request of Gauri, and refuses to marry her. Heera is shunned by one and all in the family, including Gauri. And then Radha enters his life; she marries him; encourages him to live independently; and helps his business flourish. Soon they are blessed with birth of a son. In a strange situation Bhanu Pratap meets his grandson and friendship blossoms ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Best Bachchan Movie in Years
26 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

Though a flawed film. This movie is the best Bachchan film in years, with the Big B giving a restrained performance. The comedy sequences are out of place, with little relevance to the plot. It's a shame that this movie flopped. Die hard Big B fans will enjoy this film
