Storyline

Dr.Rao (Girih Karnad) is a Vetinary doc, who comes to this village with the aim of starting a Milk Co-operative society for the welfare of the villagers. But the wealthy businessman Mishraji (Amrish Puri) and Sarpanch (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) are unhappy about this. How Dr.rao succeeds in his mission to make the villagers self reliant, with the help of Bindu (Smit Patil) and Bhola (Naseeruddin shah) is worth watching. Written by Reshmi Sharma (Roshni....A ray of Light)

Unique Film
9 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have seen this film about 15 years ago but still remember quite well, may be because I come from the region plotted in the film. The story of farmer's revolution is true and today in reality is the world's largest co-operative dairy AMUL. This film has actors, who at that time, were either newly graduated from Film Institute or had few films on their names but I think that is the charm, where the director could squeeze out the natural talent to show overwhelming expressions in the characters. In the later years most of these actors became kings of art cinema. The direction is superb; the songs and music are unique. I would recommend this film to everyone who wants "THE TASTE OF India".
