Where did you watch this movie?

'Deewar' is a sentimental family-oriented drama that revolves around two brothers – one an exemplary cop, Ravi (Kapoor), the other a criminal, Vijay (Bachchan). The bridge between them is the mother they both adore, Sumitra (Roy) but whom Vijay cannot later visit for fear of being arrested. This evocative tale explores the reasons why Vijay is forced to choose a life of violence and crime, as he works hard at menial jobs and suffers many humiliations to pay for his younger brother’s education. Embittered by the prevailing social iniquities, Vijay is recruited by a dockyard gang of smugglers and rises to become their leader. Ravi has to arrest him. Vijay decides to marry his pregnant lover, the dancer Anita (Babi), and go straight but she is murdered, causing him to become a ruthless vigilante while his mother gives Ravi permission to hunt down his wayward brother. Will Ravi be so dutiful as to take down his own brother? Where will Vijay's journey on the path of crime and violence lead him?

Trivia:
This film was remade into Telugu as Magaadu (1976) with NTR and Ramakrishna, and also in Tamil as Thee (1981) with Rajinikanth, Suman, Manorama and Sripriya.

Vyjayanthimala was initially offered the role of Nirupa Roy but she turned it down.

The phenomenal success of the film turned to be a career-changing one for many who worked on the film,especially the writers Salim-Javed.

This is one of the few films which has established Amitabh Bachchan as a 'angry young man' of Hindi cinema and is regarded as a ground-breaking one.

In the death scene, the dialogues for Amitabh Bachchan were never written, Yash Chopra gave the actor the leeway to speak what came to his mind.

Gulshan Rai read the script twice and got so emotional and teared up both times.

Amitabh Bachchan's younger brother in this film, Shashi Kapoor, is actually 4 years elder to him.

Amitabh's role was loosely based on the famous Bombay smuggler Haji Mastan.
