Storyline

Right from Peon to Principal, and from the most lowly menial staff to the office of the Prime Minister, modern secular India is embedded in corruption by officials who brag that even if Mahatma Gandhi were to approach them to grant access to his very own Sabarmati Ashram, he would not be spared. In this era a honest man is defined as one who readily accepts a bribe and does the needful, while a dishonest man is one who accepts a bribe but refuses to do the needful. It is in this atmosphere that the Kapoor family live. This family consists of Suresh Kumar Kapoor, a Professor at a Delhi college; his wife, Sarita, who is a Librarian, and a son who is Captain Rohit in the 7th Jat Regiment of the Indian Army.

Slow, but Good!
9 February 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This movie does the same thing as a typical Indian movie - exposing the corrupted government officials in India. But what makes this movie different is that it is based on a true story.

With solid acting from Om Puri and Revati and its moving true story, you have a movie that is slow-movie but really worth watching.

The only thing I did not like about the movie was its numerous songs spread over the movie, many times seem to just thrown in.

7.5/10. (Quite Good)
