The major Hindi hit of 1989. Billed as a ‘volcanic saga of three angry men’, the story has renegade policeman Karan (Deol), Ravi (Shroff), the son of the police commissioner (Kher) and a Rajasthani villager Jaisingh (Shah), defeat the criminal Bhujang, aka Bhairav Singh (Puri). The often convoluted plot has Karan fall in love with Divya (Dixit, in an early film), who is abducted by the criminal, but rescued by her brother Ravi who in turn agrees to join Bhujang’s gang. Bhujang had earlier killed both Karan’s and Jaisingh’s fathers. The film is remembered mainly for its mega-hit song Oye oye, and for Shah’s enactment of the ‘tirchi topiwala’. Its elaborate picturisation was an early success of the noted 90s dance choreographer Saroj Khan.
