Who in his dying state incarcerate his brother-in-law, his sister, Manorama and Jagannath by outcasting them from the village for a few years. Dharamraj alias Dada Thakur takes over from his dad and continues to mediate justice to the villagers; only to learn that he must assign a verdict in the form of a fair punishment for his younger brother Arjun who is found guilty in a rape and murder case - a verdict that may very well cost Dada Thakur his life.

Scenes where Rajinikanth says (Ghakraj Thakur ne ek baar kaha, toh samaj dena sau baar kaha - If Ghajraj Thakur said it once, understand he means he's said 100 times ) & lifts his shawl in style are clean tributes to the actor's hits from Baashha (1995) and Padaiyappa (1999). See more »

Paresh Rawal shines the movie
11 July 2012 | by gurdeepmann59See all my reviews

This film is OK Like all the other reviews even I think that this film should have been made in the 70s or 80s

The film has Anil Kapoor's noble family taking charge of the village and making almost every decision It does look kind of weird as it's like their family is butting into the decision of every other family in the village

There is also a side story which eventually goes into the main story and that is Shakti Kapoor who plays the villain of the film

Direction is outdated Music isn't very interesting

Anil Kapoor doesn't suit the old role but is passable in the young role Rekha is brilliant Raveena Tandon is interesting in the first half Harish is bad Paresh Rawal is funny Sadashiv Ampurkar is good Shakti Kapoor is purely evil as the villain
