Yeh Desh (English: The Country) is a 1985 Hindi-language, Political film produced by P. Mallikharjuna Rao on Bharati International banner, directed by Tatineni Rama Rao.[2] Starring Jeetendra, Kamal Haasan, Zeenat Aman in the lead roles and music composed by R D Burman.[3] The film is a remake of the Telugu movie Eenadu (1982), starring Krishna in the pivotal role, which was his 200th film.[4]


Chandramohan Azad (Jeetendra) is an employee and a union leader. His zeal and hard work are detested by some of his fellow-workers and his employer, Sinha (Pincho Kapoor). He is framed for the murder of a fellow union worker and sentenced to jail for several years. After his release, he finds out that his brother-in-law, Deshbandhu (Utpal Dutt) is an MLA, and his sister (Seema Deo) is content with the way the things are. Chandramohan's right to assert what is truthful and right is frustrated at every attempt by a corrupt society and law enforcement officers. Will Chandramohan continue to fight inequality or will he himself become part of the system he fights now?
