Where did you watch this movie?

Evocative and heart-warming, this family oriented drama follows the fluctuating fortunes in the life of three brothers – Shankar (Dharmendra), Vijay (Vijay Arora), and Ratan (Tariq). On their father's birthday, their mother taught them a song titled "Yaadon Ki Baaraat" which symbolised the enduring love of their family, for each of them. As fate may have it, one day, the boys' father witnessed a robbery by Shakaal (Ajit), and his henchmen. To protect their identity, Shakal decided to kill the boys' father before he could go to the police. So one night, Shakaal and his men storm into the boys' father's room and kill their parents. Shankar and Vijay witness the cold-blooded crime and are forced to flee. They make their way to a passing train, where Shankar is separated from Vijay. Several years pass by and the boys have grown up. Shankar is haunted by the memory of his parent's murder and is now joined by his friend, Usman on a crime spree around the city. Vijay was adopted by a fairly wealthy man who is the grounds keeper to the love of his life, Sonita (Zeenat Aman). And Ratan, was raised by the boys' maid, with his name altered for safety. Will the brothers ever reunite and set the past right? How will they recognise each other and become a family once more?
