Bulandi is a 2000 Bollywood action family drama film, a remake of the Tamil movie Nattamai. In Bulandi, Anil Kapoor portrays the protagonist, with Rekha and Raveena Tandon in supporting roles. Rajinikanth appears in an important role as the father of the protagonist, reprising his role from the Tollywood Film Pedarayudu. The hero's family brings justice to the village. Nattamai was also made in Kannada (Simhadriya Simha), starring Vishnuvardhan.
The story revolves around Dharamraj "Dada" Thakur (Anil Kapoor). Since the death of his father Gajraj Thakur (Rajinikanth in a special appearance), Dada Thakur has been the head of the village. His family consists of his wife Lakshmi (Rekha) and two younger brothers, Arjun and Nakul. Dada Thakur and Lakshmi are virtually like parents to Arjun and Nakul. Dada Thakur is highly respected in society and his word is considered law. Arjun gets married to a city girl, Meena (Raveena Tandon). At first, Meena resents her husband's subservience to his elder brother, but when she realizes that Dada Thakur helped her father in his business, she becomes respectful towards her brother-in-law. When Arjun is wrongly accused of raping a schoolteacher, everyone awaits Dada Thakur's decision, which affects everyone in the household.
In a later flashback Ghajraj Thakur was the father of Dharamraj orders his nephew Jagannath to marry a villagers daughter whom he raped, though he is his sister Manorama's (Aruna Irani) son. His brother-in-law Ranjit Singh (Ranjeet) shoots him as he is disappointed by his verdict. Enraged Ghajraj Thakur gives his final verdict before dying to abandon their family for 18 years and whoever visits his house will receive the same punishment and also not to share even a glass of water with them.Ghajraj Thakur also tells Dharamraj "Whenever we give a wrong verdict, that moment it is said that we die." At that second when he says that Ghajraj Thakur dies. Jagannath from then builds envy on his uncle's family and waits for an opportunity to take revenge on them. He plans to bring a lady as a teacher to the school in the village and tells her to make Arjun fall for her. She does so, however, Arjun refuses to betray his wife.
Angered Jagannath kills her and makes the villagers believe that she committed suicide due to Arjun's actions. Dharamraj sentences 10 years of exile for his brother's family. Now Jagannath comes to know of his daughter's love for the younger brother Nakul and tries to kill Arjun with the help of his goons. Arjun goes in rescue of his brother Nakul and pregnant Meena goes to watch an annual festival where her water breaks and she gives birth. Meanwhile, Dharamraj fights Jagannath, Dharamraj's aunt rushes to Dharamraj, kills Jagannath and reveals the truth and tells him that he punished his brother without committing any mistake and also tells him that the crimes that were thrown onto Arjun were really done by Jagannath.
Then Dharamraj immediately remembers his father's quote that whenever he gives a wrong verdict, that moment he dies. In that shock, Dharamraj dies on knowing that he gave a wrong verdict. Now Arjuna is shown taking the ancestral throne from his brother and continues the families traditions.
