"This film centres on a female pickpocket named Sapna who gets caught.  She goes on to become a popular singer and dancer after she is released by the police. Interestingly, this showcard focuses on the male lead, Inspector Kumar, with his large colour portrait in the centre. The two other frames show Sapna as a traditional Indian woman and not as a criminal. The “box style” composition is one used in billboard design as well.

The film Jazbaat (1980) was produced in 1980 by Tarachand Barjatya of Rajshri Productions and directed by Suraj Prakash.  Music by Raj Kamal, colour, Hindi, starring Raj Babbar, Savita Bajaj and Master Bhagwan."
