Culminating the end of a career that "spanned" nearly seventy years in Indian cinema, Jhanjhaar was Shantaram's last released film, and a commercial failure at the box-office. Shantaram was 85 years at the time of making Jhanjhaar.

The film is set in a village where a man claiming to be a freedom-fighter takes advantage of the villagers for his own evil purposes. The story then follows the rise of the villagers against him.

Plot

Pushpa and Gayatri are the daughters of an ex-army man, Veer Bahadur, now retired to his village. He fights against the atrocities inflicted by Nagoji, a man pretending to be a freedom fighter. Nagoji uses this as a way of fuelling wrongdoings in the village. When Veer Bahadur opposes Nagoji, he is killed. Bahadur’s daughters vow to avenge their father and save the village from Nagoji. They are helped by Nagoji's son, Santosh, who despises the evil ways of his father and more so when Nagoji attempts to molest Pushpa. Gayatri, Pushpa and Santosh together with the help of the villagers manage to bring an end to Nagoji’s wicked ways.
