This sweeping, melodramatic saga of a powerful father, and his two sons, presents an honest view of the rugged life and goals of a simple farming family against the lush green agricultural lands of Punjab. It begins with a Kisaan, Dayal Singh (Jackie Shroff), who’s immersed in the legacy of his ancestral lands as he raises two very different sons; Aman, (Arbaaz Khan) is formally schooled to become a city based lawyer while Jigar (Sohail Khan) whose lack of inclination towards anything other than farming has kept him by his father’s side. When Sohan Seth (Dalip Tahil), a shrewd businessman, convinces many beleaguered farmers to sell their lands for his commercial interests shattering the harmony of village life, the family is jeopardized. It spin tails them down a direction they can never return from, leading to a shocking turn of events when in the struggle of land and brotherhood, tragedy befalls forcing each man to re-examine his convictions. Is blood thicker than water? Will loyalty and honor outlast stubbornness and pride. Because land, land will outlast them all. Kisaan, the story of a farmer.
