Mediocre Movie, High End Music

Plot Summary:

Jacky Shroff is an honest officer posted in a village that is ruled by vile Amreesh Puri. Shroff decides to put an end to the corrupt practices of the Thakur right from the start. The animosity between the two thus starts. In the mean time Shroff falls for the village girl, Poonam Dhillon. Thakur has lustful designs upon Poonam. One night Amreesh Puri tries to rape Poonam who commits suicide to avoid being dishonoured. When Shroff comes back to Village and gets the news he vents his anger and anguish upon his pet dog for not saving his beloved. Later he comes to know that the quadruped could not have done anything for it had been shut up in a room at that time. Here starts the highlight of the movie -- the song filled with grief and gratitude, Teri Meharbaniyan teri qadardaaniyan...

Thakur's villainy continues unabated. He habitually tortures his dumb servant and tries to rape the girl who tries to commiserate with him. Both of them flee the clutches of Amrish Puri and take refuge with Jacky Shroff. Thakur as a revenge tries to kill all of them but succeeds to murder Shroff only. The loyal dog takes it upon himself to take revenge by killing all the accomplices in the murder of his master, one by one.


If it were not for the tragically enchanting music by Lakhmikant Pyarelaal, this film could not have left even a trace of remembrance. Worse than a pot-boiler plot and treatment, an extremely disinterested Jacky Shroff, a mundane Poonam Dhillon, a usual villainous Amreesh Puri, the saving grace in the movie were Asraani and the dog. Asraani does elicit some genuine smiles with his antics, whereas the quadruped surprises us with the kind of thorough training he has had. Still, omit the deeply and intensely tragical song "Teri meharbaaniyaan...." you have nothing left in the movie. I saw the movie only for this song and was not disappointed, at least to the extent of this unforgettable epitome of heart-rending tragedy.
