Storyline

Wealthy, powerful and influential Seth Dharamdas leads a financially secure life in a palatial mansion. He is known to come to the aid of all people who are beyond any hope of assistance, and this leads to him being known as "Dharmatma". But Seth Dharamdas does have a number of skeletons in his closet, and a parallel life as a gangster. The only person Dharamdas hates and fears is none other than his very own son, Ranbir, who has sworn that he will never compromise with his father's dark career, and threatens to expose him. Dharamdas has never conceded surrender or defeat at the hands of any mortal, and will never even consider to do so - even if this means the death of Ranbir. Songs include "Tere cheherey mein woh jadoo hai..."; "Tum ne kisise kabhi pyar kiya hai, pyar bhara dil kisiko diya hai...". Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

'Dharmatma' is not merely a film but an epic of life -
2 April 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Great men live and die by their ideals, their beliefs and firm convictions. "DHARMATMA" is film dealing with such men. Their values of life are strong, their passion and hatred are equally strong.'Dharmatma's' story emerges from a strong conflict between father and son - a story which keeps the gigantic characters standing miles apart in their approach towards life. Father believes strongly that the end justifies the means. The son negates this dogma - he believes that the means are as important as the end. This basic conflict creates an unbridgeable gulf between the two and keeps the son apart from the father. It takes the son away to the rugged land of Afganistan, to the picturesque valley of Bamiyan, to the ink blue lakes of Bande-Amir. Here the story takes a most dramatic turn and leads you through an unforgettable saga of love where only the fittest could survive.'Dharmatma' is not merely a film but an epic of life - where one event leads to another, where a man lays down his life for the sake of his ideals, a man who is an institution unto himself. The film with its technical and visual brilliance has a strong message to convey. A message to the youth of this nation, a message to the leaders of our nation, that patriotism not a mere sentiment - it is an action of principles based on the strength of character beyond the narrow circle of self interest.
