Fun movie with several holes in the story
23 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A brother sacrifices his career for raising his sister. Right from childhood, he becomes a horse carriage driver (tangewala). Marries her sister into a nice family. But what a coincidence! The family's head was allegedly murdered by hero's dad. So the nice family kicks the sister out and she is pregnant, what a shame!

The brother goes berserk and starts beating up folks. Gets jailed for 6 months, what a coincidence! Runs into his father. After realizing that his father was falsely convicted due to a plot conducted by bad guys, the son swears revenge to cure the injustice.

Very flimsy plot to trap the bad guys and make them confess and then everything returns back to normal. Bad guys punished, good guys rewarded, everyone happy.

Randhir Kapoor as tangewala is not very convincing, does not look poor, Babita as nomadic (banjaran), please! Too fake. But the story moves fast. Rajendranath acts his usual stupid self. A few songs are good. The action scenes are OK.

Family values, comedy, action, music, dances, everything is there. Not an outstanding movie but a typical 70s movie. That's when heroes did not touch alcohol, only villains did! Wife from decent home does not divorce even after getting kicked out of the house, she meekly touches her mom-in-law's feet and leaves the house.

If you like stuff like that, then worth watching once.
