Storyline

Wealthy, powerful and influential Seth Dharamdas leads a financially secure life in a palatial mansion. He is known to come to the aid of all people who are beyond any hope of assistance, and this leads to him being known as "Dharmatma". But Seth Dharamdas does have a number of skeletons in his closet, and a parallel life as a gangster. The only person Dharamdas hates and fears is none other than his very own son, Ranbir, who has sworn that he will never compromise with his father's dark career, and threatens to expose him. Dharamdas has never conceded surrender or defeat at the hands of any mortal, and will never even consider to do so - even if this means the death of Ranbir. Songs include "Tere cheherey mein woh jadoo hai..."; "Tum ne kisise kabhi pyar kiya hai, pyar bhara dil kisiko diya hai...". Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

this movie has everything in it
28 February 2011 | by pvsavlaSee all my reviews

An excellent adaptation of the 1972 Hollywood movie 'Godfather' to Bollywood standards, including its title in Hindi. It has been perfectly Indianised with its melodrama. It has excellent music by Kalyanji Anandji with melodious songs. Feroz Khan has acted beyond expectations equally supported by both the heroines Hema Malini & Rekha. Has mega locations of Afghanistan, reminding one of the western cowboy movies. The movie keeps one engrossed right from the beginning till the end, there isn't any dull moment. This movie can easily figure in one's must-see list. Each and every character has been appropriately casted beginning with Premnath as 'Dharmatma'. Worth watching any day.
