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. Suresh is pitted against the corrupt system when he receives word that his son has been killed in Kargil, when the fragile truce between Pakistan and India was broken, resulting in thousands of deaths on both sides. In condolence, Suresh and Sarita receive messages from various army ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

uncorrupted movie.
29 February 2004 | by (Heraganahalli, India) – See all my reviews

The only name that drew me to this movie was Om Puri. This actor has a commanding voice and an astounding screen presence so much, the younger actors have lot to learn from this veteran of method acting. The movie is an expose of Indian corruption on the background of martyrdom of a young son and the family's struggle to cope with it. Some scenes are very heartfelt and moving with flashbacks that seem enough to portray the depth of affection in the family. The tenacity of a father and his daughter-in-law(she considers herself a widow even though she was only engaged to him at his death-played seemingly well by a debutant actress) to take a road uphill againest all odds, is well told. Even though the movie lacks the typical Bollywood decorations, it is still gripping mainly because of the heartwarming story and Om Puri.
