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)

Trivia

Mithun Chakraborthy became a lead hero, known by his own name, only after Disco Dancer became a hit. Ashanti is all about Rajesh Khanna as the lead actor and his life intertwined with lives of three women. Ashanti is not a two hero film. Mithun plays the supporting role and not the leading man.

Ashanti....Good entertainer
18 January 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The film was Good entertainer, in line with those days. Those days such films with so many actors/star cast was liked by the masses. It was big Hit among front chairs, though those audience who prefer Class didn't quite like the movie. Rajesh Khanna's performance was very average. Mithunda was at his peak those days & above all all three heroines Parveen, Zeenat & yes even Shabbo looked very beautiful especially in the Lavani song. Amit Kumar-Asha Bhosle's duet became Hit whereas Lavani song & Chandrashekhar Gadgeel's "Shakti day" were moderately popular. Film did well in many parts whereas it could celebrate Silver Jubilee in 1 or 2 Centres. This might be last Hit from House of F C Mehra, Celebrated Film maker of yesteryear's.
