(Released: Feb 18, 1983)
Young Shankar lives in a small town with his mother, father, and sister, Shanti. Shankar likes to participate and pray in the nearby temple, and also sing bhajans. On one occasion, the Deity Bhagwan Shri Kishan is being covered by expensive jewelery and ornaments. This is the day that Shankar's dad is seriously ill and unable to walk. So when the prayers end, Shankar carries the Bhagwan Kishan so his father (Bharat Bhushan) can get the blessings. His father overhears that someone is going to steal the jewelery, but before father and son can do anything, the local Zamindar young Tiger and his men accuses them of stealing the jewelery-laden Deity, and kills Shankar's father. Shankar's pleas that they are innocent are all in vain. Their hut is burnt down together with his mother and sister in it. After the funeral rites, Shankar breaks into Tiger's house and stabs him in the left eye, partially blinding him, and runs away. Tiger (Amjad Khan) grows up and uses one glass eye. Meanwhile, Shankar (Amitabh Bachchan) has become an atheist, and has taken to a life of crime. Years later, Tiger and Shankar will meet again, both will be unaware of each other. Tiger will be an underworld gangster, still looking for the man who blinded him, and Shankar a career thief and atheist, who is looking for a man with one glass eye. Both are certain of one thing only - that only one will survive their next encounter.
