Storyline

When Anita Rajan, CEO of Sheppard power plant, an international Company, brings a power plant proposal to set up in rural Maharashtra before the Nagres, insightful Shankar is quick to realize the benefits the power plant can bring to the people. After convincing Sarkar who is against it for various reasons, Shankar undertakes a journey along with Anita to the villages of Maharashtra to mobilize support from the masses. However, things are not what they seem to be and Shankar's dream project gradually becomes a political minefield. It is in this backdrop the evil forces mightier than ever, mushroom and gang up to bring down the regime of Sarkar and obliterate Shankar's name from the political horizon.

Good movie as good story
7 June 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I am not a fan of RGV's films but this movie is a great make. amazing suspense,correct hold on the direction. as the name suggest( rule of Almighty), it rocks as how mastermind thinks. Good thing about the movie is that it leaves a good message to be true,straight and to think about good of community. movie has low pace but all the characters are strong enough to hold you. some time movie goes in predictable manner and you can guess what would be the next dialog. but after all the movie is good(full of violence,without showing much blood). dialog delivery is superb,and ya .... i didn't see Ash's goggles worth 50 Lacs in the movie :(. i liked the movie for it's best direction, thrilling story, good delivery and best length.
