Goofs

Throughout the movie, the role of sodium hypochlorite has been emphasised as an antidote to the poisonous effects of MIC (methyl isocyanate) gas. However, there is no known antidote for MIC poisoning, and the treatment is largely based on supportive care. There does exist an antidote for cyanide poisoning, which can occur as part of impurities present in MIC itself. The antidote for cyanide poisoning is a combination of amyl nitrite and sodium thiosulphate. See more »

One of the best films I have ever seen
5 January 2015 | by svagharSee all my reviews

One of the best films I have ever watched. Bhopal wasn't just an industrial disaster; it was a human one. It reflects the failure of design, implementation, and a neglect for the inherent humanity found in all of us. These actors brought this story to life and made it human. Rajpal Yadav shows us as the protagonist the difficult position community members were placed in- likely unaware of the extraordinary risk they were taking in working for Union Carbide. Mischa Barton and Kal Penn reflect what more journalists must stand for - pursuit of the truth. These three actors brought characters to life that show the good in people- and what we are all fighting for. In doing so, they have created an emotionally charged film that forces us all to reflect on what kind of world we want to live in. Bhpoal: A Prayer for Rain is a must watch.
