When the needs of the factory workers are not met he goes against his employers and in the process gets humiliated and abused. The owners of the firm who kidnapped his family forced him to agree to their terms and then betrayed him. This infuriated the factory workers who started to think he was a hypocrite and signed the papers for his personal benefit. To avoid further embarrassment he leaves his family and becomes a vagabond. This action hurts Vijay, the elder brother, who fails to live with the fact that his father was a thief. As life continues, the two boys live under a bridge in Bombay with their mother who works very hard to provide them with food and shelter. The elder brother, Vijay Verma, sacrifices his childhood by seeking work at a tender age so that his younger brother could receive an education. As they grow up, Vijay finds a job as a laborer at the dockyard and Ravi fails to find any job even after completing his education. Still haunted by his childhood memories which saw his father abandon their family, Vijay Verma turns into one of the biggest gangsters of the underworld. On the other hand, Ravi successfully passes his exams and goes on to become a police officer (Joshi, 2013).
The most memorable scene in the movie occurs in the second half when the two brothers, now very far apart from each other, meet under the bridge where they once grew up in poverty. Vijay, who by now has become a notorious smuggler, tells Ravi that he has created animosity with men from the underworld who would do anything to put an end to his life. Vijay also advises him to leave the city and look for some other place to settle down. But Ravi, a man strictly adherent to his principles, refuses to listen to his brother and vows to continue his fight against crime and criminals like him.
