"I Want Justice!" - well made social film.
29 August 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

When a smart middle-class girl Malati (Rati) finds out that her boyfriend Suresh (Mithun) does not take her seriously, she leaves him. But then she finds out she is pregnant, and Suresh does not want to take any kind of responsibility. While her parents fear an expected scandal and demand that she make an abortion, she decides to take him to court. She meets a lawyer named Shakuntala (Rekha) with whom she develops a friendship, while Suresh is represented by his father Dayashankar (Danny). Interestingly, the same story happened 20 years ago with the two lawyers. Shakuntala, who has an illegitimate child from Dayashankar, is decisive to win this case as she had already experienced this. And the story takes shape then.

Interesting and alluring, the film is very well directed by Rama Rao Tatieni. It is increasingly more intense as time goes by and the court scenes are very well done. The characters of Malati and Shakuntala represent the strong women of the society who will do anything to fight societal injustice. They don't spend time crying for their ill-fate. I liked the portrayal of their friendship and rapport and how both find ways to help each other (see the film to understand). The story is good, the dialogues are well-written, the music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal is melodious, and the film's style quite reminds me of Hrishikesh Mukherjee's style of film-making. The film is not overdone and for the most part does not go over the top.

The film belongs to Rati Agnihotri and she gets full scope to showcase her natural acting talent with the principled and uncompromising attitude of her character. Mithun is great in this semi-negative role. Danny manages to be as hateful as possible. But expectedly enough, the real show-stealer is Rekha, who plays her fantastic role of a decisive lawyer with great passion and conviction. She was not even 30 and played a 40 plus woman, yet she looks the most perfect choice for the part. Her facial expressions, dialogue delivery, body language are all spot on and evidently aim to show the determination of her character. The film's ending is a bit unsettling, but otherwise the film flows well and there are quite a few reasons to watch it.
