Storyline

Indian Army Captain Amar Kumar lives with his father, Ram, and mother, Saraswati. Ram has been associated with top freedom fighters during India's struggle for independence from the British. Almost all of these freedom fighters had taken advantage of their involvement and have taken up important positions in India's administration, and these include Jagrathan, and Mohanlal. While others like Vaisakh Ansari and Ram have chosen not to. Amar goes to Delhi and meets Mohanlal, who offers him a position of personal secretary with Jagrathan. Then a chain of events lead to the death of Jagrathan's pilot son, Surender, resulting in Jagrathan threatening to expose the powers that-be unless they come clean and admit their involvement. Then Jagrathan is killed in a vehicle accident. Before dying he asks Dr. Shabnam to hand-over a key to Amar. Before Shabnam could do so, she is attacked by two unknown men, and wounded.

Political thriller
25 March 2014 | by sanjayppcSee all my reviews

Awam is a political thriller directed by B.R.Chopra. It was perhaps his last film with Rajesh Khanna. It had many stars - Ashok Kumar, Raj Babbar, Smita Patil, Poonam Dhillon & Nana Patekar in a minor role.

The minus point of this film is it's running time which is close to 3 hours. It tends to drag at a few places.

Songs are also average.

There is a nice little twist in the climax but you have to wait for it.

It is a routine role for Rajesh Khanna & he performs as expected. His pairing with Poonam Dhillon is quite good. Since it is a multi Starrer, justice has not been done to all the stars.

The expectations of the film were sky high but when the film released, many were disappointed. It proved only an average success.

Just another addition to Rajesh Khanna's list of films.

One expected much more from the BRChopra-Kaka combination after Karm.
