[THIS PLOT SUMMARY CONTAINS SPOILERS] Shortly after 1800 hours, 11 July 2006, Mumbai was shattered by seven bomb blasts on Western Railway stations: Matunga, Mahim, Khar, Bandra, Jogeshwari, Borivali, and Bhayandar. It took the Police and ambulance over an hour to attend at various sites. This incident changes lives of Thomas, originally from Chennai, who sells tea from his bike; Rupali Joshi, a TV News reporter, who has to deal with the death of her to-be spouse, Ajay Kumar Pradhan; Suresh, in debt, starts to suspect all Muslims, especially Yusuf; Inspector Tukaram Patil, about to retire, goes about collecting bribes as usual, much to the chagrin of his embittered, honest and soon to-be suspended subordinate, Sunil Kadam; while Nikhil Agarwal, a Nationalist and environmentalist, debates whether he should re-locate to the United States, along with his pregnant wife, Sejal.

Indian Masterpiece on Terrorism
28 August 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie today. I have not gone in theater with some mind setup that I will see this and that, but in real meaning I was willing there a lot to see and director did the job fantastically. No errors there. He gone through the subject so intelligently that you cannot find a place where he slipped out of the main theme. Every moment and movement of the movie showing you the motive of the director of making this movie to hit on the right place of equality of different religions which is mainly Hindu Muslim.

The thing which I like the most is the bomb blast scene that made a huge impact on me as it is a short budget movie and they made i can say a shocking and horrifying scene there. This is i am talking in technical manner.

There were quite good emotional moments like hitting on media how badly they react to the situation and what happens when it came on to the people who are the part of the media (that made people clap in the theater). There were lot of places where people were clapping, that I can say was all for the director only as he is the one who handled the movie so brilliantly.

Overall, I must say this should be watched by every Hindu Muslim and others too, should be tax free soon that all get a bite of it. Anyways it is going to be in my DVD collection.

Excellent Work Nishikant
