| A promising but underwhelming debut from India's biggest superstar
This film released in 1969, happens to be the debut film of India's greatest superstar- Amitabh Bachchan. The film partially inspired from the western classic Magnificent Seven is set against the backdrop of Goan Liberation Movement (incidentally this film is handful of films based on Goan liberation movement). Six men are sent on a mission to non violent guerrilla warfare to liberate Goa from Portuguese control with the seventh one joining in Goa. The biggest coup that the director has effected is all the actors are playing roles against their type. Like Malayalam actor Madhu portraying a role of Bengali footballer or Utpal Dutt enacting the role of a Punjabi farmer. All actors including Bachchan enacted their parts well. I was quite surprised to see that the social issues that people faced at that time are still prevailing in today's social environment. But the mid portions of the film affected the pace of the movie extensively & for a movie made in late 60s (especially in comparison with movies like Guide or Prem Poojari) the production values of the filmwere not so great.

On the whole it is a must watch for Big B fans & History aficionado but for a casual film goer it is a strict one time watch.
