Heera lives in a small rural town in India with his father, a Magistrate, and housewife mother. He meets with the town's moneylender Dhaniram's daughter, Asha, both of them fall in love, and hope to get married soon. Before that could happen, Changu's daughter is killed, and the police are notified. They find evidence at the scene of the crime, and link it to Heera. As a result Heera is arrested, held in prison, tried in Court, found guilty, and sentenced to be hanged. Heera protests, pleading his innocence, but all in vain, as no one believes him, including his very own dad. In prison, Heera escapes and runs off into the ravines and it is from here emerges a new Heera - a bandit - who is cold-hearted, ruthless, and will not hesitate to kill anyone - his only goal in life is to clear his name, by finding the real killers - that is if they and the police, who have launched a manhunt for him, give him enough time to do so.

Did You Know?


The film's heroine Asha Parekh and villain Shatrughan Sinha had worked together before on Sajan (1969). Sinha stopped talking to her on that set, because of a misunderstanding. He ignored her on "Heera" as well. Many years later, he felt that his behavior was immature and recommended her to an important post. She called to thank him and they started talking again. He said that she was "very gracious about it". In 2017, he came to support the launch of her memoir "The Hit Girl". See more »

This is how Shatru made a leading man!
14 October 2011 | by Boy_with_no_nameSee all my reviews

Shatrughan Sinha and Vinod Khanna are two actors who started out as baddies but Shatru cause of his dialogue delivery and ability to upstage other actors(watch him kick Big B's butt in Kaala Pathar)and V.K. cause of his good looks were "promoted" from being villains to heroes and rest we all know.This is one of those movies where you end up rooting for the bad guy cause he is so cool.Shotgun Sinha as Balwant kills,plunders,lies,cheats,blows rings with cigarette smoke,tortures,gives punch-line after punch line and walks away with the whole show.And although I love Mr. Dutt,Shotgun is just too good in this film.Besides that the film doesn't have much to offer.Special mention should be made of the action sequence where Dutt Saab takes on a gang of goons including Mac-Mohan in an under-construction building.It's done really well and very stylishly.
