Storyline

A small town in rural India gets to witness a confrontation between two fathers - one a rich, powerful, influential, and cruel Zamindar Thakur Avadh Narayan Singh - who wants the man who filed a police complaint against his two sons to be killed immediately. And the other is Rudra, a poor laborer employed by Avadh, who wants justice when he finds out that his nine year old daughter, Durga, has been beaten and brutally raped by Avadh's sons, Bachhu, and Bhola. Amidst this background we have a corrupt doctor, who is willing to change his medical report after he is bribed appropriately; and a Police Inspector, Ramnarayan Bhardwaj, who is willing to drop any charges against Avadh's sons provided he gets his "dues" from the Thakur.

Good intention, bad execution
13 May 2007 | by (California) – See all my reviews

The movie is laudable because of the mature theme it chooses to deal with. The actors are convincing throughout the movie. The portrayals are believable. Sanjay Dutt, Nandita Das and Om Puri impress.

However, the movie loses its steam and meanders after the first quarter. The director might have thought he was creating a lot of gray shaded characters but instead he ends up creating non-credible and confused ones. Unnecessary flashback songs, and a dragging narrative don't help either.

In the end it's another Bollywood Masala movie where the impossible is made possible by a single man's efforts. The only thing that distinguishes this movie from other pot-boilers is the cause for which the hero fights for and it's a worthy one...
