Ahead Of Times
27 September 2015 | by manishduttmd-03936See all my reviews

This was the first Indian movie to have depicted the excesses committed on the ordinary people by the British implemented corrupt Indian police system which subsequent governments in free India have deliberately not reformed. This movie was released in an era when not many elite people wanted to visit the cinema halls and instead preferred viewing on the video, at home. The movie did not do well at the box office as it wasn't well conceived by the masses. To me, it is the best Sunny movie ever. Rahul Rawail at his best as the movie did succeed in stirring the souls of the viewers who understood it.

The genius of RD Burman is again on display in not just the songs composed but also the background score. All in all, a must for one's personal library.
