Storyline

When newly married bride, Neelu, was brought in the brothel by her husband, Appa Rao, on false pretences, Muskaan Bano, a courtesan for several years, also remembered her unfortunate story. Things change when the police raid the brothel, and apprehend the patrons and the courtesans. Inspector Sawant takes a liking to Muskaan, and decides to promote her to another "market", albeit more sophisticated, to which she agrees. Thereafter there is no looking back for Muskaan, who is now known as Malika, and the sky is the limit, including avenging herself against her Arab husband, who sold her at the flesh market, with deadly results, as well as a chance at meeting the person who really runs India.

Finding a good movie is like looking for a good food, you have to know your taste buds. This is a delightfull movie but for the content which is gut-wrenching. Manisha Koirala, is an underestimated actress who thrives in the portrayal of a prostitute in the Bazzar (Market). The script is written by the characters that we see in the inner sanctums of decadent society of corrupt law and legal System. Like "Haasil," another down to the core movie that parlays the inner cities this movie exposes the ruthless atrocities unabashedly with real dialect and acting. The movie does not waste time on mundane stuff but comes with a message that is so blunt that keeps you thinking and admiring for the courage to bring to the surface the ills of the Society that should be cured not band-aided.
