Catch Shatrughan Sinha’s unforgettable dialogues in ‘Vishwanath’
MUMBAI: Adhering to its core proposition ‘Woh Zamaana Kare Deewana’, Zee Classic, India’s only classic Hindi movie channel will air Subhash Ghai’s crime saga Vishwanath for the first time on Thursday, July 23 at 9 PM. The second successful collaboration between Subhash Ghai and Shatrughan Sinha, Vishwanath grossed around Rs. 7 Crores at the box office which could easily be valued at Rs. 287 Crores in today’s time.
Written and directed by Subhash Ghai, the film is known for its razor-sharp dialogues. It is said that whenever Shatrughan Sinha mouthed the ever popular dialogue “Jali Ko Aag Kehte Hain, Bhuji To Raakh Kehte Hain…” the fervent audiences uproared and voluntarily threw money at the screen, much to the theater owners delight.
The film revolves around Vishwanath (Shatrughan Sinha) a middle-class public prosecutor with a penchant for justice and a soft corner for the common man. Known to be an unstoppable force, Vishwanath wins a case against the son of noted industrialist GNK (Prem Nath). His prosecution awards life imprisonment to Jimmy (Sudhir) — the son and his henchman Khokha (Ranjeet) on charges of rape and murder. Not many in the city are aware that GNK is also an underworld don involved in all sorts of criminal activities. Fumed with rage and using every trick of the trade, he wants to get back at Vishwanath.
Will Vishwanath fall prey to an ordinary trick of GNK? Will he be forced into a life of crime or will he find vindication?
