Bandhe Haath is a 1973 film produced and written by O.p. Ralhan starring Amitabh Bachchan in a dual role as Deepak and Shyamu.  Along with starcast of Mumtaz in the lead role and Ajit, O.P. Ralhan, Ranjeet, Madan Puri, Asit Sen, Tun Tun and Pinchoo Kapoor as supporting star cast.

A remake of the film Mulzhim, the story is of a thief named Shyamu (Amitabh Bachchan) who makes his living by stealing after the death of his mentor Madan Puri.  On the run from the police after committing a number of robberies in the past, Shyamu ends up in a village and he comes across his look alike Poet Deepak (Amitabh in the dual role). Shyamu with a wicked mind decides to kill Deepak and steal his identity.  However, when he realizes that Deepak is already on a death bed due to his illness. When Deepak dies he takes over his identity and informs the police that Shaymu had died and he was Deepak.. The Police are suspicious.

Shaymu in the meantime changes his life from being Shaymu the thief to Deepak the stage artist . Mala( Mumtaz) is also a stage artist and she falls in love with him. He also realizes that Deepak before he had passed away had his lover Rajni(Kumud Chhugani) who mistakes Shyamu for Deepak.

The story gets intense when he wants to retrieve all the letters written by Deepak to Rajni with a fear of the Police conducting a handwriting test,  with a script that evolves as an eye opener for the society that evil men can also transform into the path from crime to becoming a good human being.
