Main Balwaan is a 1986 Indian action film starring the legendary Dharmendra, the versatile Mithun Chakraborty and the beautiful Meenakshi Sheshadri. The movie is a masala film with a mix of action, romance, and drama. The plot revolves around the life of Dharamraj (Dharmendra), a disciplined and honest cop who is dedicated to his work. However, he faces numerous challenges while dealing with the corrupt system and the criminals who have a grip on society.

The movie begins when Dharamraj loses his wife and son in a car accident. He is shattered by the tragedy and decides to leave his job as a cop. However, he is persuaded by his friend, Inspector Balwinder Singh (Mithun Chakraborty), to rejoin the department. Balwinder's motivation stems from his belief that Dharamraj is the only one who can help bring down the local crime lord, Kedar Nath (Danny Denzongpa).

Kedar Nath's criminal enterprise is vast and he has the support of corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, and police officers. Dharamraj faces an uphill task to bring the criminals to justice, but he is undeterred by the challenges. Along the way, he encounters Kavita (Meenakshi Sheshadri), a young and beautiful woman who is a witness to a crime committed by Kedar Nath's men.

Dharamraj decides to protect Kavita and enlists Balwinder's help to hide her from Kedar Nath's men. In the meantime, Dharamraj continues to investigate Kedar Nath's operations and soon uncovers evidence of his involvement in the illegal drug trade. Kedar Nath realizes that Dharamraj is getting dangerously close to exposing his criminal empire and orders his henchmen to eliminate him.

The movie's climax is an action-packed sequence where Dharamraj takes on Kedar Nath's men in a violent showdown. The action scenes are well choreographed and showcase Dharmendra's strength and agility. The fight against corruption and crime is ultimately won by Dharamraj when Kedar Nath is brought to justice.

The movie is notable for its performances by Dharmendra, Mithun Chakraborty, and Meenakshi Sheshadri. Dharmendra's portrayal of the honest cop struck a chord with audiences and earned him critical acclaim. Mithun Chakraborty, too, was praised for his portrayal of the supportive friend while Meenakshi Sheshadri's performance as the damsel in distress won her accolades.

The movie's soundtrack is also worth mentioning. Composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal, the songs have a catchy tune and sweet lyrics. The most popular song from the movie is "Hum Aur Tum Ab Nahi", which is still played on the radio and is a favorite of many.

Overall, Main Balwaan is a typical Bollywood masala film that will appeal to those who love action-packed dramas. The movie is a perfect blend of action, drama, and romance and features some of the most talented actors of the time. The story may seem a bit dated now, but the movie's message about the importance of fighting corruption and standing up for what is right is still relevant today.
