Storyline

Gangaram Verma has worked for the local municipality for several years, and is known in the community for being honest. Contractors' many attempts to bribe him have all been in vain. One of the contractor's, Prem Kumar, decides to teach Gangaram a lesson. He hires Gangaram's only son, Vijay, in his office, and subsequently gets him married to his only daughter, Sapna. The three then scheme to get Gangaram to trust them, and upon doing so, they get him to sign his property to them, leaving Gangaram and his wife, Laxmi, homeless. Vijay and Sapna bring up their son, Ravi, and tell him that his grandparents are dead. Years go by, then one day Ravi comes across a coolie who resembles his grandfather. He follows him home, and gets to hear the truth from his lips, and decides to treat his mom and dad the same way they treated his grandparents, with shocking results.

honor your parents or else
2 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got this movie because I have become quite a Govinda fan. I almost didn't as it had no reviews and only a few votes. Did only relatives vote? But Govinda and his dancing and his smile won out and it was worth the view. A little heavy handed in the message, but Bollywood does that.

We have a son who's greed for money has him rejecting his honest father and his views of life. The son marries the daughter of the honest father's worst enemy. They become estranged. Then the son has his own son. The grandparents become close to the grandson The grandson comes to prefer his grandparents over his parents and so are thrown out into the cold cruel world to fend for themselves and the child is told his grandparents are dead.

20 years later the child is all grown up and finds out his grandparents are still alive and decides to teach his parents a lesson.
