Before I talk, I need to know if I am talking to a brother or a police officer?

I guess after Sholay this is one of the best movies in Indian cinema. A must see. This movie is one of the finest blend of movie in Indian cinema. What a terrific performance from Mr. Bachchan, the direction, dialogs, acting everything mixed so well.
This story loosely based on one time underworld don "HAJI MASTAAN", he was a dock yard worker, which played by Amitabh Bachhan (vijay).
Story started with a union leader who fought for their rights. But the owners of the factory plotted conspiracy and termed him a thief. His family could not face the society and moved out from that place. The older son could not forget this and became a sensitive person. In circumstances he kept his feet in criminal world and soon became underworld don. But his brother became a cop and he's now trying to nab his brother. Director tackles this story quite well.
