Storyline

This story revolves around Malhar Gopaldas Agnihotri, a out-of-work actor, poor, and dependent on his father, who is heading for retirement. Malhar knows that he can act, very well indeed, all he needs is some encouragement, and some money. He gets neither. His father is abusive, and even gets physical with him openly in front of all the neighors, and even the neighborhood. Malhar loves a young lady named Apoorva Choudhury, but his affections are mis-applied, as Apoorva only regards him as a friend, and she loves Nihal Joshi, a Police Inspector. Frustrated at the lack of love and encouragement, Malhar takes recourse in an exercise, an exersise that will put him in direct confrontation with the law, as it starts with murder.

Must Watch
10 January 2017 | by pulkitblitzkriegSee all my reviews

This is one of the best Bollywood movie ever. It deserves a rating of at least 8.5. One of Nana Patekar's best work. If you have not watched yet, then please watch. This is a hidden gem. N Chandra has directed and written this movie really well. I had never heard of this movie before but now i am going to suggest this to all my friends. Its a bit long but you are not going to leave this movie in between. Bollywood needs to make more movies like this. It is a sheer delight. Nana Patekar has acted really well. At times i felt like i was watching a Hollywood movie. N Chandra has written and directed this movie really well. He needs to make more movie.
