Storyline

Honest and dedicated Police Inspector Kumar Chandra Singh intercepts a bank robbery, and is in the process of arresting the bank robbers, when he himself becomes a suspect, and is apprehended with a suitcase containing some of the cash stolen from that bank. Kumar is stripped of his powers as a policeman; is arrested; tried in court; and sentenced to prison. As a result of his arrest, his mother dies of shock and disbelief. He is crippled in an accident, and must use the help of crutches to walk. When he is released from prison, he has only one goal in his life - to find the culprits responsible for his ruin, and humiliation. And for this he finds support in Kamini, Sonia, Sunita, and Shanker Dada, little knowing that one of these women was herself involved in getting his arrested. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Action filled entertainer
16 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

This film is from F.C Mehra, one of the fairly good directors in his time. It is a multi-starrer with Kaka in the lead. The 1st half belongs to Kaka totally. He plays an honest police officer who loses his legs just before the interval. He then has to seek the help of Mithun & the 3 heroines - Parveen, Zeenat & Shabana.

Mithun is his usual self. Amrish Puri is menacing & Zeenat & Parveen look gorgeous even while performing action. Shabana is a misfit here. The film celebrated silver jubilee in many centers.

Though it is close to 3 hours, it keeps your entertained, though the music by RDB could have been much better, considering his association with Kaka.

The film kept Kaka fans happy since it added to his list of hits.
