Storyline

Shankar lives in a remote village in rural India with his mother and sister, Manju, and drives a horse-carriage for a living. The main employer in the region is a kind-hearted businessman Maganlal. When Maganlal announces that he would like to undertake a religious pilgrimage, his son, Kundan, takes over and wants to cut back on labor and mechanize the business - thus leading to loss in jobs. He also introduces a bus thus taking away business from the horse-carriage drivers. This angers the community and they ask Kundan to reconsider, and he flats refuses - but agrees to withdraw the bus provided Shankar races it with his horse-carriage. Watch the action unfold as Shankar unites a divided village, and how he sets about to keep his faith in winning this race between man and machine. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Inspiring Movie
18 August 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie is an inspiration to me and it is to all Indians, it really generates national spirit in every Indian, and should be inspire people world over, how we can build our nation.

As till date India still lives in the villages, development of villages, can been down without burdening on the government. People can change there lives with Sramdan, if all the citizens unite together and develop our motherland living all the differences,our nation will become one of the richest nations. So let us do it.

The song Saathi Hatth Badhan.... gives lot energy. This movie is see it again and again movie.

Vande Mataram!!!
