Lakhon Mein Ek is a 1971 Bollywood film directed by S.S. Balan. The movie stars Mehmood, Pran Sikand, and Ramesh Deo in lead roles. Lakhon Mein Ek is a story about a man who has strong intentions but faces multiple challenges as he tries to bring about change in his community. The movie opens with Janardhan, the protagonist played by Mehmood, returning from the city to his village. He is disappointed with the way things work in the village and decides to take action. Janardhan wants to build a hospital for the villagers who are in dire need of medical facilities. However, he doesn’t have enough money to fund the project.

Janardhan comes up with an idea to stage a fake miracle to convince people to donate money for the hospital. He convinces a group of people to play the roles of gods and goddesses, and the act is successful in raising enough funds for the hospital. Janardhan is able to build the hospital and start providing medical services to the villagers.

However, not everyone is happy with the changes that Janardhan is bringing to the community. A wealthy businessman, played by Pran, doesn't want the hospital to be built as he believes it will impact his business negatively. He tries to sabotage Janardhan's efforts by bribing government officials and creating hurdles in his way.

As the story progresses, Janardhan faces several challenges and setbacks, but he never gives up on his dream of helping the villagers. He also falls in love with a beautiful girl, played by Bela Bose, who supports him in his endeavors.

The movie highlights several social issues prevalent in rural India, such as lack of medical facilities and corruption. It also has a strong message of perseverance and following one’s dreams no matter what obstacles come in the way.

The performances of the lead actors, Mehmood and Pran, are noteworthy. Mehmood, who was primarily known for his comedic roles, delivers a powerful performance as Janardhan. He brings a lot of depth and emotion to the character, making the audience root for him throughout the film.
