Storyline

In the village of Rangpur, District of Badlapur, India, lives Narainda, who has been the Postmaster for the last over 35 years. He has patiently awaited the arrival of an assistant so that he can consider retiring. His assistant does arrive in the shape and form of Chandan Mishra. Narainda teaches him to deliver mail, take a rupee for reading mail out aloud; and avoid much contact with the prostitutes of Lal Batti. But the women of Lal Batti, Phulwa, Gulabo, Bijli, Basanti, Padmavati, and young Titli, the daughter of Basanti, are drawn to Chandan, and he becomes a frequent visitor there. The local High Priest Bhuvan Panda, who also visits Basanti late at night to satisfy his sexual lust, does not appreciate Chandan's frequent visits, especially after he finds out that Chandan is educated and very outspoken. Then a mysterious admirer of Basanti starts sending her love letters and even proposes marriage. When Bhuvan finds out, he forbids anyone from going to Lal Batti, as in his mind ...

i'd give it 0 rating if i could
14 June 2006 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

i tot kalpana lajmi, the director of films like RUDAALI, DARMIYAAN, DAMAN or KYON, would have given a decent direction and story for the film.. also considering that its adapted from a novel i think... well of course sush and mithun gave some good performance... sush the prostitute who falls in love with a postman... she was good with the emotional and outburst scenes and in some other scenes she was trying to be cute and chulbuli.. clearly having no continuity in her character development...

and since the story itself is pretty controversial, some scenes could have been handled better.. i just ended up feeling grossed out and horrified... some very bold scenes too, makes u feel sad for the life of a prostitute, but later on when she is dancing and singing the bichua song in the mela, u get confused thinking maybe her life is a party after all.. and speaking of songs.. totally irrelevant.. as irrelevant as having chutney with chocolate... reminded me of David dhawan movies...

the cause of the failure of the movie... everything.. the direction, story and actors..
