Storyline

Master Dinanath is an ex-freedom fighter. When he gets Thakur Pratap Singh arrested for arms smuggling, he has Master's wife Bharati and young daughter Priti kidnapped and also turns his locality's public against him. Dinanath escapes with his young son Raju and they settle into a slum named Bharat Nagar. Meanwhile, Bharati contracts leprosy and escapes from her kidnappers, leaving her daughter Priti in a friend's care. Dinanath is led to presume that his wife and daughter are dead. Bharati Nagar is ruled by four underworld dons, each representing a different Indian community. Dinanath persuades them to live in harmony and once they settle their differences, the four dons use Dinanath's stay in Bharat Nagar to cover up their own illegal activities. Fast Forward to 15 years later, the year is 1962. Dinanath's now grown-up son Raju turns out to be the opposite of his father by being drawn into the underworld, committing crimes to earn money with his father unaware of what he does. Raju ...

Chat with full Indian Massala
17 March 2004 | by ArvindVyasSee all my reviews

Manmohan Desai, who in his earlier movies "Amar Akbar Anthony" and "Naseeb" introduced formula of "Hindu-Muslim-Christian unity", has gone beyond the formula. Here he has the formula for "east-west-north-south unity of India". Of course, he has his usual spice.

Dinanath (Amitabh) is a freedom fighter - married to Bharati (Sharmila Taigore). During the freedom struggle, though freedom is won but, he looses Bharati - who leaves as she is affected by leprosy. He is given shelter in Bharat Nagar - as four underworld dons of Bharat Nagar (representing east - great bengali actor Uttam Kumar - who died during filiming the movie and the rest of his role was played by hair dresser to Amitabh Bachchan), west (Parikshit Sahani), north (Shammi Kapoor) and south (Prem Nath)). However, his son (again played by Amitabh) right from childhood realizes that the dons are using his father's stay in Bharat Nagar to cover up their wrong doings. So he starts "hafta-wasooli" and grows up just opposite of his father. He is mistakenly married to Hema Malini while trying to run away from police hides behind "sehra" in a mass marriage ceremony organized by his "Father".

How the son and the Bharat Nagar is reformed that is rest of the story.

Lot of massala is there and that include Amitabh Bachchan mimicking his idol "Mehmood"!

Overall load of fun!
