     13Dirty Dozen (1967) -style film invoking 
     14‘terrorists’ backed by ‘neighbouring’ states. 
     15Rana Vishnu Pratap Singh (Kumar) is a 
     16benevolent warden of a jail who feels that 
     17people become criminals either because they 
     18are forced into crime by a corrupt society (in 
     19which case they should get a second chance) 
     20or through greed (which is unpardonable). His 
     21main hatred is reserved for Dr Dang (Kher), 
     22head of the Black Star Organisation, a group of 
     23international terrorists. The obstreperous Dang 
     24arranges to bomb the jail, killing inmates, and 
     25during his escape bid Dang massacres Rana’s 
     26family, except for his wife Seeta (Nutan), who 
     27goes dumb with shock, and his youngest son. 
     28Rana is put in charge of a special anti-terrorist 
     29squad comprising murderers condemned to 
     30death: Baiju Thakur (Shroff), Khairu (Shah) and 
     31Johnny (A. Kapoor). Rana trains them at a 
     32border post in the farmhouse of the former 
     33criminal Dharma (Dara Singh). The relationship 
     34between the condemned men and their leader 
     35forms the bulk of the film, interspersed with 
     36love affairs, until the quartet eventually 
     37overwhelms the villain’s heavily guarded 
     38military retreat.
