Storyline

Salim has been born lame, and lives with his mom, dad, and a sister who is old enough to be married. He and his dad search around for a suitable groom for her, and he meets Aslam. Salim rejects Aslam, as Aslam is not making enough wages that are commensuerate with his qualifications. Salim meets with some gangsters, who promise him that they will make him rich soon, and all he has to do is incite religious riots, pitting Hindus against the Muslims, and he will be well rewarded. Salim has always wanted to be rich, but will he take this opportunity to be wealthy? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

24 August 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Saeed Akhtar Mirza who gave us Mohan Joshi Haazir Ho and many good films, gives yet another good film The film has a good plot and it's well handled. It narrates a story of A tapori and his life and it's brilliantly handled. In it's short length of 1 hr 45 minutes it brings you a wonderful journey of a poor tapori and also throws light on goons.etc

Direction is good The film doesn't have many songs and there are okay

Pavan Malhotra is fantastic as Salim Langda, Vikram Gokhake is fab, Makrand Deshpande and Ashutosh Gowareikar are fab, Neelima Azim is fab Vikram Gokhale is apt, rest are all good
