PlotEdit

Tired of his older wife and son, the Thakur (Kamal Kapoor) remarries a much younger woman, and throws his wife and son out of his palatial house. His employees, led by Kalicharan (Shriram Lagoo), go on a strike, demanding higher pay and benefits, which are unacceptable to the Thakur. He invites Kalicharan to meet with him, offers him money, and when Kalicharan refuses, he has him killed. His second wife gives birth to a baby girl, Nisha (Zeenat Aman), and passes away. Years later, his past comes to haunt him when the sons of Kalicharan, Shiva (Mithun Chakraborty) and Karan (Danny Denzongpa), along with their widowed mother, seek revenge against him. To make matters worse, Nisha refuses to marry Ranjeet Ranvir Singh (Ranjeet), the man Thakur has chosen for her, for she loves Shiva; and the ultimate showdown between the Thakur and his now grown son, Iqbal (Amjad Khan) and Iqbal's lover (Kajal Kiran) and with Thakur's first wife.

CastEdit

ReceptionEdit

The movie was rated a 6.5/10 by IMDb.[1]

While its cast was full of stars at the time, the film ultimately did not perform well at the box office, and the movie was a flop.

The movie brought more credibility to actress Kim, a rising star who starred in films such as Disco Dancer and Naseeb the year before. She was famed for her acting as Sona, and for her bikini scene in the film where she makes a failed escape attempt from a river after being pursued by bandits.
