A well-acted and simple story

The story of New Delhi times is nothing new at least at this age and time. The saga of corruption and criminal-political nexus has been beaten to death in Hindi pot-boilers. It may have been relevant movie when it was made.

What stands out though is a simple narrative, and excellent performances by Shashi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Om Puri and Kulbhooshan Kharbanda.

It is also one of the few movies made in India that looks at the difficulty and paradox inherent in a crime-journalist's profession. It is hard to maintain objectivity while covering a story and not feel empathy towards those suffering at the same time. The journalist played by Shashi Kapoor faces this dilemma while trying to uncover a dubious racket involving politics, riots and murder, and in the end decides to stick to what he thinks is right.
