  "Deewar" by Jyotika Virdi
The film DEEWAR appeared in 1976, roughly thirty years after independence (1947) in a decade that was characteristically different from the earlier two decades of the 50s and 60s that post-independent India had lived through.
Vijay Verma's life in DEEWAR, his rise from a humble dockyard worker to a powerful smuggler is paralleled to Haaji Mastaan's life and the occasion when he attacked Bakhia is compared to the moment in the film when Vijay goes to Samant's house (a rival smuggler in the film) and attacks him.
DEEWAR may also be read as a family melodrama of sibling love and rivalry; the son's (Vijay's) transgressive love for his mother, his inability to "separate" from her successfully, for which he is punished.

 Manas: Culture, Indian Cinema: Deewar
A film such as Deewar, to extend the argument further, represents the regression of the male into a state of childhood, an attempt to reinstate the primacy of the umbilical stage.
As is quite transparent, both Vijay and Ravi vie for her affection and attention, and when the manner in which Vijay is making his living becomes known to her, and she seems determined to leave the mansion he had brought for her, his only defense is that he has done everything in her interest.
It is at the risk of being captured by Ravi that he attempts to visit his mother at the hospital; more tellingly, when her life is hanging in the balance, he takes the unthinkable step of going to the mandir and asking God, though scarcely in a voice of reverence, for her life.

As we've said, 'Deewar' continues the journey begun with 'Ishq' in terms of musical outlook in that it consciously tries to shake off the strait-jacketing of the band in a music genre and tries to break free from the confines of stereotyping.
Two of the songs on 'Deewar', the excellent opener 'Taara Jala' and 'Sapney' have their music done by Ali and present a sound that is fairly distinct from the rest of the songs on the album.
What 'Deewar' does do however, is to prove the band's confidence in themselves and their desire to make music that is as much a real-politic statement as it is a reflection on their personal lives.

'Deewar' is one of the strongest links in the Zanjeer which chronicles the Bachchan story.
The typical Bachchan cult places 'Deewar' as the second step in the victory ladder, 'Sholay' being the final nail in the coffin of all other stars.
In that sense if 'Deewar' is to be seen on its own terms then it is a triumph for the writers rather than the star or the director.

 Manipulation of Demographic Shifts Masquerading as Plural Cinema in 'Deewar' [CCT Edition]
For Deewar’s time period, however, Bachchan’s emergence (and the corollary of female’s submergence) speaks to the fatigue society felt with the status quo.
Not that Deewar is a picture by the people and for the people, but if it is propaganda or pablum, it does a poor job of condoning conservatism.
Judging from Deewar, the answers lie not with either the elites or rural majority, but at the thin green line gradating the urban minority.

 Jabberwock: Revisiting Deewar
Sholay is the obvious example and I’ve written about it a couple of times, but another such film, one I think always gets short shrift, is Deewar, a movie that has been stereotyped endlessly, and is consequently all but lost today in a sea of parodies.
The fatalism and despair that mark Deewar’s final scenes is rarely ever commented on, because it wouldn’t fit too well with the popular image of the film as a pro-active, “angry young man” story.
Another scene that comes to mind is the one where Bachchan hesitantly calls his mother on the phone, arranges to meet her at the temple, then tries to say something more but can’t get the words out and just puts the phone down instead.

They were subsequently consumed whole by their own cola dilemmas and catch-22 scenarios, so much so, they have failed to record another album ever since 1995’s Hum Tum, in spite the fact that on a number of occasions they have tried to reform for a come-back release.
The dreggy “Ghoom Tana” is followed by the title-track, “Deewar.” Starts out well with an edgy and melancholic guitar intro, only to fall all over the place once Ali, Salman and (guest vocalist) Ali Noor start to take turns to plead individually about the walls of hate and mistrust (maybe between India and Pakistan?).
Also, Deewar's cover is probably the most unimaginative, horrendously ugly, nausea inducing piece of excrement Junoon has ever produced.

It recapitulates the basic frame story of MOTHER INDIA (1957), in which a mother recalls in a long flashback the chain of events that led her to destroy the favorite of her two sons because he had turned against the Law.
Like its distinguished predecessors in exploring the divided-sons theme, DEEWAR aptly illustrates how the commercial cinema can use image, character, and emotion to subvert and question its own surface messages.
The film opens at a police awards ceremony, where sub-inspector Ravi Verma (Shashi Kapoor), who is being commended for heroic service, insists that his medal be given to his widowed mother Sumitra Devi (Nirupa Roy).
