Deewaar was a ground-breaking work. It was one of a slew of films establishing Bachchan as the “angry young man” of Bollywood cinema and Parveen Babi as the “new Bollywood woman” whose character Anita is “a liberated working girl, smoking, drinking and sleeping with her lover, defying every Hindi film heroine rule.” The movie cemented the success of the writing duo Salim-Javed, who went on to write many more blockbuster films. It is said that after the success of this film, the value of film writers skyrocketed thanks to Salim-Javed, and they soon were being paid as highly as some actors at the time

As a youth, Vijay struggles as a dockworker. Eventually, he becomes a leading figure of the underworld, while younger brother, Ravi, is an educated, upright policeman. But in the end, it all comes down to, who does mother love more?
