Gowda is a goonda (an Indian Mafioso) whose octopus like tentacles have a hold on illegal numbers game (matka), brewing and distribution of illicit liquor, smuggling of firearms and other contraband. To aid and abet him, he has the cooperation of a senior police officer, a minister and the entire official machinery under their control. Three brothers, Ajit (a military man - Fawzi), Bhagat - a policeman and Jai, who is unemployed are on a collision course with Gowda and his goons. Within the police, Pawar, the honest Commissioner and Bapat, his deputy are on a collision course. The Minister is orchestrating both the administrative and the Mafia bosses, and their underlings. While this is a formula film of the mid 1990's an ageing Dharmendra still puts in a credible performance. Rest of the acting is at best, mediocre. The plot and dialogues are predictable. The usual elements of corrupt politicians, police, honesty, patriotism, values are present in this B Grade film. Worth watching ... Written by mg-gopalan

Complete Intense and high voltage drama ... must watch
20 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

I've watched this movie multiple times. Still it urges me to re- watch over and over and over.

There is an absurd plot of youngest brother jai that too only for 10 mins in total.

Acting by Villain (Gawda) is very intense and he played that excellently. Half of the movie is centered to Inspector bhagat singh, he has proved himself as tough cop but unlike other Indian heroic movies, he gets killed in half.

thereafter Dharmendra comes in full form, with so much good dialogues and action (realistic) he helps the team to win the show.

In this whole movie, I liked the guys worked behind the canvass. The story writer (Hats-off) for such excellent dialogues. Screenplay writer was brilliant, director was awesome and then come actors.

Although, this movie was cut by censor (esp. death of Gawda) which was sad demise.

Anyway this was B-grade movie with veteran actors but still it wins the show.

Highly recommended for everyone. You will see why it has more reviews than other movies of same title among the world.

That is why this movie was remade the same year by another director Kanti shah,as Loha (with almost same cast). Which is low as it was c-grade but it also gives the kicks.

Give it a try you will not regret.
