Mohan Kumar's diligence and honesty lands him in trouble with Balwant Singh Kalra, Jugal Kishore Ahuja, and Mr. Bhandari. Together the trio frame and imprison Mohan and make him watch helplessly as his wife is killed. Years later, Mohan Kumar is released from prison, his only goal in life is to avenge his humiliation and wrongful arrest at the hands of the trio. With the help of Dinesh Verma, he establishes himself again, and starts the process of bringing death and destruction to the trio. The trio are well aware of his presence, and decide to send one of their men, Ravi, to spy on him. Ravi falls in love with Verma's daughter, Roma, and decides to change sides to help Verma and Mohan, but Mohan will not have anything to do with Ravi, and asks him to leave. Ravi then becomes a target by the trio and their men, and has to save himself, and the only way he can redeem himself is by turning the tables over Mohan, who is none other than his own father.

A Star Studded '80s Blockbuster with the Regular Formula.....
6 June 2016 | by SumanShakyaSee all my reviews

Dramas blended with crimes, smuggling, revenge, lost children, and reuniting have been an instant recipe of most of the Hindi Movies from '60s. By the time this film came, the story has been seen so many times that there remains nothing new to be explored. The story is familiar, the villains are well known, the characters are buyest, music and songs if not mediocre are still not very memorable. A sequence if I'm not mistaken is taken straight from the Oscar Winning "The Sting" in which Rishi Kapoor steals cash. If something is good in this movie, it's an impressive performance from Thespian Dilip Kumar and a cameo by Saira Banoo. Dilip Kumar made yet an another remarkable performance in "Mashal" in the same year. Today the film if remains watchable is only for the due respect to him. Lastly, with this review, I would like to pay a homage to Late Sulabha Despande, who appears in a brief role in the film. Sadly I got the news of her demise while I was watching the movie. She should be remembered for her modest roles in social dramas like Pet Pyar Aur Paap, Bahu Ki Awaaz, Kamla, and many more.
