Dinanath Shastri (Madanpuri) is a devout Hindu firefighter. One day his son, Shankar (Mithun Chakraborty) brings home a young girl, Salma (Rameshwari) as he felt sorry for her. Dinanath thinks she is Hindu and calls her Shanti, and thinks of making her his daughter-in-law, as she nurses him and looks after the entire household after he has an accident. One day Dinanath meets with a blind man who he recognizes as Dr. Varma (Om Shivpuri), who he has known for many years. Dr. Varma's daughter, Neetu (Ranjeeta Kaur) and Shankar were childhood sweethearts. This news breaks Salma's heart but she does not let anyone know. Dr. Varma's arch enemy the wealthy, powerful, and seemingly generous Agnihotri (Amrishpuri) finds out he is alive and sets his goons out to kill him. Why would a rich and generous man want to kill a harmless blind man? What will be the reaction of the devout Dinanath when he finds out that Shanti is Muslim? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Good Attempt
22 December 2016 | by ravisinger86See all my reviews

Aadat Se Majboor Directed By Ambrish Sangal is A Romantic Drama. Script is Well Written . Screenplay is Good To Below Average. Editing is A Bit Let Down. Action is Less & Effective . Chemistry is Good Between Mithun & Ranjeeta.

Movie Starts With Joginder Singh(Amrish Puri) Who Murders Someone, Seen By Shankar. He Tries To Kill Him. Shankar Loses His Eye Sight. Dr.Verma(Om Shivpuri) Operates Him. Meanwhile Joginder Singh Damages Verma's Eyes And Makes Him Blind.He Has A Daughter Neetu. Neetu Likes Shankar. Dinanath Shashri(Madan Puri) A Devout Hindu is Father Of Shanker. He Along With His Son Move To Mumbai.

Now Shankar(Mithun Chakraborty) is A Tourist Guide.He is Kind Enough To Help Others. He Works For Agnihotri(Amrish Puri). Neetu(Ranjeeta) Loves Shankar. One Day Shankar Saves Salma(Rameshwari) From Goons. Shankar Asks Her To Change Her Name To Shanti & Stay With His Family.

Acting By Madan Puri & Ranjeeta is Better Than Most Of The Cast. Mithun is Fine. Rameshwari is a Poor Actress. Amrish Puri, Om Shivpuri Are Fine.

Music is Good By Usha Khanna. "Andar Ki Baat Hai" By Shailendra Singh is Best Of The Lot.
