Women rise up to attain equal rights in Rajasthani village
27 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most of Mr Nihalani 's movies address real issues being faced by millions people in India be it women's issues (different perspectives-Bhumika and Nishant), political issues (Junoon etc) or India's feudal system (Ankur). Most of these have made their point, very successfully. Unfortunately Sanshodhan was tepid. It had the feel of a TV film (Doordarshan) and one whose content unravelled as the film was being shot. Considering the overall story of the masses taking law into their own hands and asserting themselves is something Indian cinema has seen many great examples of, some from Mr Nihalani himself, this movie proved to be a weak infusion of already overdone plots in Indian cinema.
