After feuding with his dad, a judge, Raj Raghunath leaves home and falls in with criminal Jagga. Once he realizes that his new friend is a key figure from his family’s past, Raj kills Jagga. As the crime happened in the elder Raghunath’s jurisdiction, Raj’s case is set to be heard by his father.

Our take

Raj Kapoor makes a deeply layered film within the ‘Bollywood’ template, trusts his audience to go along for the ride, and they trust him back to deliver. And he delivers! Epic drama and set pieces, stunning dream sequences, dashing and luminous leads, and a colossal Prithviraj Kapoor. -VM
