Storyline

Naive, simple-minded Ramdin Pandey lives a poor lifestyle in Nasik, India, along with his sister, Shanti, and works as a Havaldar in the Nasik Central Jail. He arranges Shanti's marriage but the prospective groom's family want Rs.5000/- which he is unable to afford. To make matters due to his simplistic job performance he has not been promoted. Then their jail gets a new inmate, the dreaded Rehmat Khan, who has been found guilty of killing Ranga for allegedly attempting to molest his prostitute mistress, Zareena. Rehmat finds out about Ramdin's weakness, befriends and then uses him to escape on the pretext of visiting his ailing mother in Bombay, and never returns. A furious Jailor, Sharma, asks Ramdin to travel to Bombay, locate Rehmat, and then return or else he will not only lose his job but also be prosecuted. A hapless Ramdin agrees to do so - little knowing that soon he will be at the mercy of the cunning and cruel Rehmat as well as Ranga's vengeful brother, Jaggi.

Well acted
10 January 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

If you are a Raj Kapoor fan, see this one. His performance is natural. I always had an feeling that his talent, as an actor, was never fully explored. He just had 'Teesri Kasam', 'Jaagte Raho' and few other movies to his credit. Though I remain in doubt regarding his directorial abilities. His career graph as a director may have been very successful, but there is hardly any movie worth remembering, except 'Aag', 'Aawara' or 'Shri 420'. He was without any doubt multi-talented, but his later directorial efforts, though successful, remained mediocre.

This movie also has Shatrughan Sinha's one of the very few fine performances. As always though, he is loud, yet believable. He and Raj Kapoor has chemistry, that works. Dulal Guha's direction is okay, but the main attraction remains Raj Kapoor, an policeman and a simpleton! 7 out of 10.
