Storyline

Raju comes from a middle-class family, and lives with his mother. He meets with nurse Shobha, and both fall in love. The only problem is that Raju somehow or other always gets mixed up in problems, and ends up getting in trouble with the police. As a result, he ends up getting in jail very often. One day he really gets into trouble by antagonizing a notorious gangster, and has to run for his life. Due to his "trouble maker" character no one really believes him, and it is upto him to save himself from this problem, without ending up in prison again. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

raju keeps ending up in jail!
22 November 2006 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

one of the greatest entertainers of the 80s Jail Yatra makes for great viewing even today.

Made at a time when Amitabh Bachan ruled, VK shows in in movies like this & Khuda Kasam how very close he was to Bachan.

His comic timing is second to none as he plays Raju the simpleton who keeps ending up on the wrong side of the law.

He ends up buying a brand new Mercededs Benz for 51 rupees & the murder & mayhem that follow are hilarious. Reena roy, Amjad khan even Jagdeep are in top form. Ashok Kumar shows his versatility & plays his role very well. all in all, still makes great viewing. The likes of David Dhawan would do well to watch Jail Yatra.
