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)

A good movie with a strong message
13 May 2010 | by (Pune,India) – See all my reviews

Well,I would say 1980-90 has been the best decade for the Indian Cinema. Parallel Cinema came to rise n flourished. Salim Langde Pe Mat Ro comes under that category. The central character Saleem is an uneducated chap who fills his pocket by doing petty crimes. He dreams of settling down by doing something big.

The characters are the strongest point of this film. Actually had a doubt over Pawan Malhotra for this major role but he has been excellent.

The film depicts the thinking of the uneducated Muslims.The gradual development in Saleem is beautifully shown.He begins to question his integrity his existence.

Kudos to the director for not inserting any unnecessary vulgar scene.

His unemployed father, his mother,his friends,his courtesan girlfriend the somewhat gypsy,the hotel owner all leave their mark.

Recommend watching!
