Hard-hitting tale of political corruption
22 August 2002 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Simhasan ("throne") was a gem of a movie set in the seventies in Maharashtra, against the backdrop of a political struggle for Chief Ministership. The story is told through the eyes of a journalist who witnesses the now-cliche nexus between politicians and criminals. The black-and-white treatment made the realism even more believable. The dialog was also very realistic: famous line: aamchya maage adusashta ahet, adusashta -- sixty-eight!
