Storyline

A young, dashing, and honest Police Inspector, who lives with Mr. and Mrs. Prasad, goes to a small town in Southern India to be introduced to a prospective bride, Koyal, the daughter of Gopinath. The Police Inspector falls head over heels in love with Koyal and wants to marry her. Koyal too falls in love with him. When the time comes for finalizing their marriage, a man comes forward alleging that the Police Inspector is not who he claims to be, but a man who is a bastard, born out of an unknown biological father. This leads to the postponement of the marriage, and the Inspector questioning Prasad and his wife as to who he really is and who his father was. Prasad starts recounting his mother, Gayetri's, life, the fact that she married an obnoxious man named Amavas - a man who was selected by a shady politician to lure the innocent public to vote for him - so that he can plunder the nation to no end.

Mithunda's award winning villainous turn.
15 September 2020 | by nadkarnisumeetSee all my reviews

Jallad review :

Mithun Chakraborty, an excellent actor that he is, could rise above any godamn script to make an entertaining film. A thrice National award winner, Mithunda gave another winning performance in Jallad (1995) which fetched him the Filmfare award for Best villain.

Before a few of you start sniggering about Mithunda, I would advise you to please watch his Mrigayaa (1976), Tahader Katha (1992) and Swami Vivekananda (1998) to understand what a great actor he is!!

Anyway, Jallad was a part of Mithun's mid 90s Ooty phase where he made some three dozen odd films in span of five years all directed by TLV Prasad. This was the best amongst them all and featured Prabhuji (Thats how Mithun is still referred to in North India interiors which formed the loyal market for his Ooty products. Prabhuji, by the way, means God) in a double role of baap-beta.

As Baap, Prabhuji is called Amavas, an opportunist, who uses a fellow politician Kader Khan to win the local election and renames himself Vijay Bahadur Kunwar. He also marries the much older Moushumi Chatterjee while deserting his pregnant girlfriend Madhoo.

In a world class ham scene, Madhoo gives birth to Amavas' child while arguing with Bhagwaan in typical Amitabh Bachchan style. Phew! Anyway, beta grows up to be a cop and stiff opponent to baap's nefarious activities. The voluptuous Rambha forms the love and lust interest of both son and father respectively.

The baap beta confrontation scene is the film's highlight :

"Arre paida hi hona tha, to apni maa ki shakal leke paida hota, humri kahe lee?" asks baap Mithun.

"Main tere paapo ka saans leta saboot hoon", the son Mithun retorts..

Quite naturally, there is nothing in Jallad other than Prabhuji Mithunda and his villainous act is simply brilliant. Whether ordering a riot for political gains or gyrating to Sonu Walia's item number, Mithun Chakraborty is first rate. The film is not.

Regards, Sumeet Nadkarni.
