Kuchhe Dhaage (1973)
(Certified: Jun 18, 1973)
In the state of Madhya Pradesh, India, particularly in the Chambal Ravine there are abundance of bandit gangs, chiefly consisting of Brahmans and Thakurs, both carrying on their age-old rivalry and hatred for each other from generation to generation. Our story revolves around Brahman Pandit Tulsiram (Kabir Bedi) who betrays Thakur Bahadur Singh (Dev Kumar) to the police, and as a result Bahadur is sentenced to be hanged. Widowed, pregnant and devastated, Bahadur's wife Devaki Singh (Nirupa Roy) swears that she will raise her child to hunt down and kill Tulsiram at any cost. She gives birth to a son, names him Lakhan (Vinod Khanna), and lets the bandits teach him their way of life. As soon as Lakhan grows up, he kills Tulsiram. Hearing of his father's death, army-man, Roopa (Kabir Bedi in a double role), resigns and openly swears to kill Lakhan. Unknown to both of them, a beautiful young woman named Sona (Moushumi Chatterjee) enters their lives, making them wish that they were living a honest life instead, and both fall head over heels in love with her. Both are on the verge of changing their lives when they find out that the other also has fallen in love for Sona, and they return back to their bitter oaths - kill or be killed.
