The most inspiring movie ever seen!!
8 May 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie is about an army major who fights with the system which is corrupt & full of people who watch the oppression by goons, politicians and silently suffer it. Very normal for everyone of us. An absolute truth has been reflected about the Indian society & its way of accepting things as it is but cometh one man who does not believe in accepting things as it is. There have been many masala movies in Bollywood where the protagonist takes up the same challenge but this movie does away with all the unnecessary masala. The story line is very simple & touching. Major Chauhan's character is an outcome of his childhood, his scope of interaction with the society is very limited but his determination to clear the society of evils is impacting. His cadet's death creates an impact on him and the same impact happens on everyone of us when a close one dies. The best thing about this movie is its closeness to reality. Real life commando training, real life situations and a different response to them. What this movie will teach you is that don't accept things as it is. Learn to change them. The ending of the movie is its best part. Major Chauhan says "Chiku, jis din tumhare jaise mere bahut saare dost ho jaayenge, us din main azad ho jaunga". Clearly he gives the message that things will change when people start reflecting to his thought process.
