Storyline

While delivering food in a forest area in Andhra Pradesh, impoverished Narasimha is held against his will by a band of Naxalites led by Velu, and forced to join them. He is anxious to collect his dues and return home to his wife, Uma; daughter, Chinna; and son, Mohan, but Velu keeps on putting it off. Narasimha gets to know and sympathize with members of this band, and befriends Lakshmi, who was gang-raped by several policemen. He is then asked to prove his loyalty by killing an informant/plainclothes police inspector - which he does - and even accompanies the band on an assault on a school, resulting in the death of some children. Traumatized after this incident, he decides to flee - and it is this decision that will not only estrange him from his family but also force him to be on the run from the band as well as the police.

Don't be Prejudiced
31 December 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A real good movie.Suniel Shetty, who is often underestimated in bollywood,is seen in one of his best roles here,humble,emotional and simple.Hence the title for my review. There's plenty of action stuff,no dance sequences or unnecessary scenes that can spoil a film based on social issues like this.Music is remarkable. A poor cook is caught in the raging battle between Naxalites and police in Andhra Pradesh when he goes to work in a different town near the jungles to earn a little more money for his wife and kids,and is forced to work with the naxalites against his will. The film traces the story of a young man who struggles to come out of the situation he is in, between working for naxals,trying to take care of his family away from him, and his conscience which he is trying to battle.It also goes in depth into the lives of naxalites. The others like Vinod Khanna,Gulshan grover,Ashish are also seen at their best.

All in all,worth a watch.Deserved more attention really.
