Much better than the average Bollywood flick
1 November 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

While some reviewers are correct in pointing out that this movie lacks polish, the substance of the movie and the acting of Rajpal Yadav more than make up for it. One of the more outstanding aspects of this movie is that it presents a much more realistic depiction of legal proceedings than any other Bollywood movie I have seen till date. Although it would be erroneous to call it wholly accurate, it was gratifying to see that some thought had been put into this matter.

The theme of the danger of trial by media / society is a very pertinent issue today in India (in fact in much of the world), with standards in journalism rapidly falling. The effect this is having on the integrity of judicial proceedings is a very contemporary issue, and this movie is fairly thought-provoking in this regard.

I would give the producers / directors extra points for not tainting the movie by hiring big "stars" as is the unfortunate trend followed all to frequently in Bollywood in trying to maximize on a film's marketability.

The dialogue could be slightly better in parts. Yet in parts it was very good in terms of being realistic and not forced. A little bit more polish, and this movie would be excellent.

Definitely worth a watch!!
