Rahul Rawail is the best !!
11 April 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

The mention of the word "DACOIT", is enough to send a silver through the spine of man. But has one ever thought as to what are the circumstances which lead a normal human being to take up the life of a DACOIT? Rahul Rawail's film 'DACAIT' is one such story.

Bordering the Chambal river, are the deadly ravines around which there are numerous villages. In one village lived Arjun Yadav (Sunny Deol) along with his mother Devi Chodhrain (Raakhee), his elder brother Amrit (Suresh Oberoi), his Bhabi, nephew, and younger sister.

Arjun had completed his education in the city and come back to live with his family. The Zamindar, Thakur Bhanvar Singh (Raza Murad) along with his brother Badri (Dan Dhanoa was a greedy and ruthless man who had design to take over all the land owned by the poor farmers of the village, by tricking them into signing the land papers in his favor. The Thanedar of the village Bishnu Pandey (Paresh Rawal) was hand in glove with Thakur Bhanvar Singh thus making life extremely difficult for the poor villagers. Devi Chaudhrain managed to rally all the villagers together and along with her son Amrit opposed Bhanvar Singh. When Bhanvar Singh realized that this family was becoming a thorn in his plans, he attacked the villages and in the carnage that followed, Arjun's family was massacred, his mother became insane and he was left with no alternate but to take to the life of a Dacoit.

How did Arjun take his revenge from all the cruel people who led him into this life? What had destiny in store for a peace loving boy who was forced into a life of violence by oppression?
