The story of two brothers, Vijay and Ravi Verma, who follow different career paths, Vijay is a smuggler and Ravi the policeman who is asked to hunt Vijay down.
First time I have seen the whole movie. I had a big realisation about the limitations of my knowledge of old Hindi movies. Almost all the iconic scenes or dialogues that I remember from old movies are from this film. The iconic 'Mere Paas Ma hai' being on of it.
The movie is a story of two brothers, caught in opposite sides of law. Considering the time-frame it is one of the best movies ever made. Apart from the mainstream success, which was sure to be considering the riveting plot lines, the acting by both Amitabh and Shashi Kapoor are admirable. Particularly Amitabh with his cold blooded stare to agile action sequences.
As one of my friends put it, those were the times when the film-makers and action directors used to respect gravity. This can be one which I'd love to watch again sometime.
The Indian classic Deewaar is the story about a mother and her two children, Vijay and Ravi, who have no other choice then to leave their village to find a better life in the city of Mumbai. The life in Mumbai is tough. Their mother have to work hard for low wages, so does Vijay, in order to send his younger brother Ravi to school. The two brothers goes their separate ways. Vijay (Amitabh Bachchan) becomes a smuggler, while Ravi (Shashi Kapoor) becomes a policeman, who must take his brother down.
As in the US, India's youth was also rebelling against the old and corrupt government. While US actors like Jack Nicholson and Robert De Niro reflected the angry youth…
Hindi blockbuster. Memorable dialogues. This is mainstream hindi movie at its best.
Classic film of two brothers who take different paths, one a police officer another as a criminal. Great dialogue and great acting all round especially by the two stars: Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor. Has held up well with time except for the overly dramatic music.
The kind of movie where a man wipes away his tears with a gun.
A tale of two brothers-one growing up to be an underworld don while the other becomes a cop. Memorable dialogues and some power performances.
My favourite movie
