Rahgir (1969)

  • LanguageHindi

THIS IS THE STORY of a man whom the road lured away from his home and his hearth and who would snap all bonds at the beckon of the wide open road. 

Loved by everyone he met, he refused to let any family tie bind him. Instead, he chose to roam about and keep roaming to satisfy his endless craving, his unique wanderlust. 

This man was a far cry from the handsome, home-keeping hero. Yet behind his rugged exterior there lay warmth, a tender heart. He rambled, as he had to, under the spell of a fascinating influence, to strange destinations and to a stranger destiny.
