A different face of the Indian Cinema

As opposed to the general notion of Indian movies, this is not a regular run-of-the-mill film.

It is a sensitive movie, with intense performance by Naseeruddin Shah in the role of a self-respecting visually-impaired principal of a blind school, who hates the society for pitying people like him. He works towards making his students self-reliant. Shabana Azmi plays a social worker who has a troubled personal life supporting him as a volunteer. The movie depicts the relationship between the 2. The pride of the man and the sympathies of the woman are the cause of turbulence in their relationship.
