Storyline

Inspector Ashok Sharma is assigned to take over as Inspector In-Charge of a remote police station, which he does. Upon his arrival there, he comes to the rescue of a blind man and a widow, and has a fist fight with Nishikant Shah and his men. The next day, Shah finds out that the person his men fought with is no other than the new Inspector In-charge, and he goes to pay homage, but Ashok refuses. Then Shah and the local MLA spin a web of lies and deceit, in which Ashok is accused of killing a man in custody, and as a result he may face criminal charges and also lose his job.

When does society change? What is an agent of change?
9 June 2014 | by (New Zealand / India) – See all my reviews

I am writing this in 2014, where rapes and other violence is in the press each day. I did never watch vernacular films, when I lived in India, during part of my youth. I am more than making up for it now.

This is a clean movie about an honest and upright officer, who comes across departmental corruption, power of landed aristocracy and the role of politicians in the decay of the moral and social fabric of India.

As other reviewers have said, this is a film with a difference:

1. No rape scenes 2. No overt violence 3. No mushy love songs

The social aspect of the lovely movie is the role of an orphaned boy and and a widowed woman. Further masala (spice) is added through the role of money and power in rural India.

Even 30 years later, in my travels, I find that nothing much has changed. People have cell phones and TV, but they are crippled through corruption of bureaucrats and other authorities.
