Chorni is a Bollywood film released in 1982, directed by Jyoti Swaroop and starring Jeetendra, Neetu Singh, and Shreeram Lagoo in lead roles. The movie is a drama and action-packed story that revolves around a blacksmith named Shyamu, who is falsely accused of theft and murder. The story begins with Shyamu (Jeetendra), who lives with his mother and younger sister. He is a skilled blacksmith and is respected by everyone in the village. One day, while working in the forest, he meets the beautiful and kind-hearted Gauri (Neetu Singh). They soon fall in love, and their romantic scenes are one of the highlights of the movie.

Trouble arises when Shyamu is falsely accused of stealing a precious necklace belonging to the village's wealthy landlord, Thakur Pratap Singh (Shreeram Lagoo). The landlord has a grudge against Shyamu, as he believes that the blacksmith knows about the illicit relations between his wife and his younger brother.

Shyamu is arrested and tortured by the police to confess to the theft and murder of a policeman. But he refuses to admit to a crime he did not commit. Gauri and his sister try to get help from the authorities, but they are either intimidated or bribed by Thakur Pratap Singh.

The movie takes a dramatic turn when Shyamu’s mother dies of shock, and he decides to take revenge on the people who have wronged him. He escapes from the police custody and starts living in hiding. He takes on the persona of Chorni (the black one) and becomes a bandit, robbing the rich and helping the poor.

The rest of the movie showcases how Shyamu, as Chorni, uses his intelligence and strength to outsmart Thakur Pratap Singh and his goons. He also rescues Gauri from the clutches of the villain, who wants to marry her forcibly.

The climax scene is an adrenaline-pumping action sequence where Chorni takes on Thakur Pratap Singh and his men. The fight scene is well-choreographed, and the suspense keeps the viewer engaged until the very end.

The music of the movie is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal, and the songs are sung by legendary singers like Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, and Asha Bhosle. The song ‘Chorni Tere Naam Ki’ is still popular among Bollywood fans.

Overall, Chorni is an entertaining movie that showcases Jeetendra’s versatility as an actor. He shines in both the romantic and action sequences, and Neetu Singh complements him well. Shreeram Lagoo is also impressive as the conniving and ruthless villain.

The movie deals with themes like injustice, revenge, and love. It also highlights the social issues prevalent in rural India, like corruption and the nexus between the rich and the powerful.

In conclusion, Chorni is a must-watch for fans of classic Bollywood movies. Its captivating story, intense action scenes, and soulful music make it a timeless entertainer.
