Bashir is arrested and taken to Court, where Justice Diwan finds him guilty and orders that he be hanged. Then a man named Bhurre gets killed, and the evidence points to Rajan, who is also arrested and produced before Justice Diwan, who also finds him guilty, and sentences him to death.

Multi starrer treat
19 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Dharm & Qanoon features 2 mega stars - Rajesh Khanna & Dharmendra, with Vinod Mehra, Jayapradha, Danny, Asha parekh etc., Rajesh has a double role of father & son while Dharam plays his friend. The story line is quite good & the tight screenplay keeps the viewer interested.

Rajesh get to do some action scenes here & is good. Dharam is as usual in his elements in the action sequences. But it is the scenes between the elderly Rajesh & Dharam that move the audience. They are a treat to fans of both the stars.

The director has cleverly balanced the roles of the 2 mega stars & kept the fans happy.

Music by Kalyanji anandji is average.

The climax is heart wrenching.

The film was a success at the box office & also made in tamil with sivaji ganesan in the lead.
