(Released: Nov 16, 1979)
Durga (Nirupa Roy) and Vikram Singh (Amjad Khan) have been married for years. Vikram has taken to crime in a big way, and as a result has antagonized a rival gangster, Jaggi (Kader Khan). Durga gives birth to twins, and Jaggi steals one of them, and sells him to a bootlegger, Pascal (Jeevan). Durga is upset when she finds her son missing, but is devastated when Vikram abandons her. With a lot of difficulty, Durga brings up her son, Kishan, and has given up on finding her other son. Kishan (Shashi Kapoor) has grown up and is now a dedicated police officer. On the other hand, Pascal has exploited Amit (Amitabh Bachchan), kept him illiterate, doing petty crime, and alcoholic. This gets him in confrontation with Kishan, but ironically the two settle their differences and become fast friends. Vikram is still alive, and is not aware of his two sons and wife being alive. Without revealing his identity, he hires Amit to kill Kishan during a Navratri dance at Maa Sherawali's temple. Amit informs Kishan, and together with other police personnel, keep vigil. Things do not go as planned, they are attacked, and Kishan loses his eyesight, and may never get to see again, leaving the onus of Amit to try and locate the person(s) behind this crime.
