A ex-convict must flee his mob boss, leaving his family to fend for themselves. His wife goes blind and his children are abandoned. They are adopted by a Hindu policeman, a Muslim tailor, and a Catholic priest. The Hindu-raised son becomes a policeman in his turn; his Muslim-raised brother becomes a singer; and the last son, played by Amitabh, becomes a happy-go-lucky Catholic who lives on the edge of the law. The boys meet again and their lives become entangled in an incredible plot full of unlikely coincidences and furious action sequences interspersed with songs. In the end, the grieving mother recovers her sight, the evil mob boss is punished, and the family is at last re-united.

How many likes for Amitabh Bachchan's cult scene wherein he mouths a dialogue looking into the mirror? The dailouge 'Pakka idiot lagtay' is still fresh in everyone's mind. Not many will know that while the mirror scene was shot, Manmohan Desai was shooting the climax of Parvarish on another floor of the studio. Amitabh Bachchan, while rehearsing, shot the scene in the absence of Manmohan Desai. In fact, the film was shot in separate schedules with each pairing. See more
