Gripping realistic tale of 1980s politics in Maharashtra as well as India
12 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

As pointed out by another reviewer, it really is a gem of a movie. While Bollywood was waking up to the genre of hard-hitting political films, this film comes out trumping all of them, as well as the rest of the Marathi movies. The cinematography, music, dialogues and the closely-knit story having an array of strong realistic characters, portrayed by the most gifted Marathi actors who were fledglings at that time-Mohan Agashe, Nana Patekar and some others as well as the senior ones-Arun Naik, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo complete this compelling and tragic portrayal of the political scenario.

It amazes me how the film entrains so many themes-coalition governments and resulting instability, trade union strikes, new- found socialism for governments of the day, the degrading morality among people, dalit atrocities, urbanisation problems faced in Mumbai, etc. and still manages to spin a truly moving tale.

This movie is a must-watch for anyone who intends to understand India and its political equations.
