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)

Slow but heartwarming
21 February 2004 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

This was a touching movie and had a few poignant scenes, for example, when Om Puri brings proof that he's Sanjay's father. This is not the typical Bollywood movie of a hero unrealistically fighting against the corrupt Indian government. Here, an elderly couple works their way through disgusting politics to immortalize their son who died while fighting in the Kargil war. A strong-willed father wants to give his life meaning by means of a gas station. The actress opposite Sanjay Suri gave a wonderful performance and a breath of fresh air by depicting an independent, self-respecting woman. The only negative of this movie is that it is very, very slow-paced, and the part about the murderer doesn't make any sense.
