Amitabh Bachchan Absconding For Justice The Tale Of Rajesh In Faraar 1975

We welcome you to the episode of Amitabh Bachchan’s filmy journey and today we will talk about his film Faraar that was released in 1975.


A murder thriller film with suspense released in Hindi language, the film is produced by Alankar Chitra and is directed by Shankar Mukherjee. The film starring Amitabh Bachchan, Sharmila Tagore, Sanjeev Kumar in the pivotal roles, has also Sulochana, Sajjan, Agha and Bhagwan Dada in supporting roles.  The music is my Kalyanji Anandji and the film was remade in Malayalam by Priyadarshan. Faraar which means absconding had very popular songs by Kishore Kumar. One of  them was Main Pyasa tum saawan…. Which went on to become a hit. The writer for this film was Gulzar

The story is of a middle class man Rajesh essayed by Bachchan sahab. He lives with his sister. He is in love with a nice woman and they have decided to marry, but like any brother wants to get his sister married and then settle down. However, his sister is one day raped and murdered. The police are unable to find the killer and unable to bear this, Rajesh takes law in his hands, traces the murderer and kills him to avenge his sister’s death.  He is now on the run from the police himself.


To save his life from the police, Rajesh takes the help of a little child as a hostage in his home only to release that the house belongs to the Police inspector (Sanjeev Kumar) who is now married to his former lover essayed by Sharmila Tagore. He is also badly injured due to the bullet that has hit him. His former lover helps him with the dressing but keeps it a secret from her husband that the murderer is hiding in their house. She in the meantime tries to convince Rajesh to surrender himself and that he would get justice.  But Rajesh has lost faith on law and refuses to hand over himself. 

After several attempts to arrest him Sanjay finally manages to capture him and he beats him up until Mala who has changed her name from Asha intervenes.  Sanjay suspects Mala.  Their only child goes missing and in the scuffle hurts himself and needs blood.  Rajesh’s blood group matches that of the child and he donates blood to save their child.  He leaves a message for Sanjay not to suspect their relationship and she is as pure as ever and to accept her.  As he fled, Sanjay takes pity on him and asks Rajesh to come out of his hide out but when Rajesh refuses he orders Mala to bring him out. The moment he comes out the police shoot him and he is dead. Before dying on Sanjay;s lap he tells them not to grieve that he only took revenge for his sister’s death by rape and murder and to ensure a better life for other women who would have been a target too. To ensure others are safe. The film ends with Rajesh’s pyre lit.


In his earlier films like Deewaar, and Sholay Amitabh Bachchan has been hit by a bullet but he is saved as the hero of the film but here in this film, in the climax the central character dies. Audience do not like to see their hero dead and the film didn’t do as well at the block buster as it did in the earlier two films.
