Maidan-E-Jung (1995)

  • LanguageHindi

Power in the hands of wrong people gives birth to anti-social activities. These politicians are the biggest threat to our society. One such criminal donning the garb of a politician is Daata Guru (Amrish Puri). While one of his sons, Gumaan Singh (Gulshan Grover) is just like him, his other son Karan (Akshay Kumar) is not a part of his notorious activities nor is he aware of his father's true identity, Chhoti Bahu (Jaya Prada), Daata Guru's daughter-in-law, is a widow. In order to put an end to Daata Guru's exploitation, Master Dinanath Shastri (Manoj Kumar) decides to contest the elections. Daata Guru wants to win unopposed. To teach Master Dinanath a lesson, Gumaan Singh rapes his sister Radha (Vaishnavi). Gumaan Singh escapes imprisonment and Master Dinanath is rendered helpless. Even Master Dinanath's brother, as S.P. (Mukesh Khanna), fails to do anything of note. Shankar (Dharmendra) works for Daata Guru. He never fails to raise his voice against injustice. Tulsi (Karisma Kapoor) is his sister. Tulsi and Karan are in love. Shankar foils Gumaan Singh's bid to rape Chhoti Bahu and to avoid further threats to her dignity, ties the know with Chhoti Bahu against Daata Guru's wish. This results in a rift between Karan and Tulsi but when Karan comes to know the truth, he leaves his father's house and starts residing in Shankar's house. Daata Guru is furious and unleashes a reign of terror in the village. This tussle between the villagers and Daata Guru is no longer a struggle, it's a war. Who'll be victor?

To know the answer, you will have to view K.C. Bodadia's 'Maidan-E-Jung'.
