An action drama, considered one the big classics of Indian cinema, inspired by true events and follows three different men as they band together in order to fight the rampant corruption at the coalmine. First we meet Vijay Pal Singh (Amitabh Bachchan) a disgraced naval officer who was discharged from the navy and disowned by his parents for abandoning his ship with 300 people still onboard. He is haunted by guilt and humiliation and commits to a self-exile from his past life starting a job at the Coalmine, where he meets and befriends Ravi Malhotra (Shashi Kapoor) the engineer at the coal. He also attracts the unwanted attention and rivalry of Mangal (Shatrughan Sinha) an ex-convict on the run and keeping low at the mine. The mine it self, is a hazardous and dangerous environment, and their calls for new equipment and medical supplies goes unanswered, till one day water starts seeping thru and flooding the main tunnel and thus endangering the lives of more than 400 trapped workers. The three men must unit their forces to save the trapped workers and their own life from both their physical and emotional shackles, breaking free at last.
