Storyline

A simple story of a God fearing, devout Muslim mechanic named Hasmat Ullah who has been entrusted the job of repairing an old V8 ford engine, not knowing the historic significance that it once carried the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi which were immersed in the holy river Sangam. He is caught in a complex situation after a powerful bomb explosion rocks his town leading to the arrest of innocent Muslim youths of his locality. A strike to work is called by the prominent Leaders of his community to protest against the unjust treatment meted out to those arrested youths by the police. Will he support the protest and abandon the repair of the engine or go against the wishes of his community. Thus begins his journey. Written by Anonymous

A different taste
19 November 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

In one line I would say this movie is different and very simple. Paresh Rawal has done a brilliant job as expected from his caliber. Film Starts with a orthodox Muslim thoughts but ends in a positive way. Gandhism was as relevant 60 years as it is now this is the base story of this film. there are few loopholes and few fact failing about Allahabad but overall proper research work has been done, and Director Amit Rai and Writer wanted to add all of the facts and research in this film making this movie a documentary and slow, at least this movie should have been 30 minutes shorter and less dramatic at the end. Om Puri and Pawan Malhotra try too hard for their role but fails, Javed Sheikh and other supporting cast are impressive. Last word for Cinematography, I have never seen Allahabad so beautiful as in this movie, and I think this is the only movie completely shot in Allahabad. Credit goes to Director, My Vote 7 out of 10, 3 marks dedicated for Slowness, Dramatic ending and too much preaching. Finally, do watch this movie again for the climax seen where People are beaten by Policemen who are walking with Gandhi Jee's Car... A violence in Non-violence message film...Mistake in editing..
