The film was a remake of Tamil movie, Suryavamsam which was directed by E. V. V. Satyanarayana. In Bollywood version, the film cast Amitabh Bachchan in dual roles of Thakur Bhanupratap Singh and Heera Thakur.

In the movie, we know that Bhanupratap and Heera don’t share a good bonding because Heera is not educated. The film takes many twists and turns and finally Heera becomes a recognizable man in the country. In the end, everything goes according to a typical Bollywood film.
