Another Maestro of Irrfan Khan
22 July 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Another meaningful movie of this year. Yet another time Irfan khan has proved his acting prowess. This is a story of a common man who stands against the corrupt system to search answers; answers which are harsh and even if we know them nothing will change. But knowing them are very much necessary for us. The story telling of the movie is good and I would say that would go to the brand of Nishikant Kamat. But what I personally liked the most about this movie is that it has pointed out the fact that what might happen in real-life and what we pay to see in reel-life if any commoner takes such a bold step. This movie emphasizes the fact that GOVERNMENT IS NOT CORRUPT, BUT THE GOVERNMENT IS FORMED TO DO CORRUPTION. People may change,leaders may change political colors may change but corruption survives and we the common people let it survive by paying with our lives in the end.
