More about the movie
There are times when a movie is released with much fan-fare, and a good cast, but is downright unsuccessful in making any kind of impression in the heart of the viewers, regardless of quality, style, or substance. Indrajeet, remains Amitabh Bachchan's most underrated movie. This otherwise famous Bollywood movie narrates the tale of an honest and brave police officer who is finding it rather hard to build a house for himself. He then creates a good home for his only daughter, acted by Neelam in the movie. While he was trying to achieve all these, he was also finding it hard to deal with the many losses and misfortunes that strike his personal life one after another, to his consternation.
To make matters even worse, the demons from his own past appear suddenly to shatter all dreams to smithereens. Finally, Indrajeet tries to find refuge in the same law that he used to serve for equity, as well as support. Soon he is cast aside and ignored by the dishonest officials of the whole legal system that he has served so faithfully until now. Finding no other way out, he comes to the bitter conclusion that he cannot find any help from any quarter. As a result, he finds that he has no other choice except to take matters in his own hands, and proceeds accordingly.
Unlike the scores of movies that deal with political injustice, this particular movie does not deviate into areas of the improbable, unpalatable or unbelievable. Through Indrajeet, Amitabh Bachchan proves yet again that he is always regarded as the all-time superstar and Shahenshah of Bollywood cinema. And Indrajeet is indeed a classic movie that is unjustly overlooked! You can shop for this DVD online and have it delivered at your doorstep.
