Thought-Provoking At Every Point. ♦ 72%
17 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Never have I heard of this movie in my 4 years as a film aficionado, but after watching it, it has to be termed one of the many forgotten films of Bollywood.

Just because it doesn't have known faces as actors doesn't mean the cast is bad. In fact, along with Sonali Kulkarni & others, the cast turns out to be perfect for the film. Although they were not properly directed, the plot does strike a couple of chords. Investing in lots of research, the writers tell the story of a person named Mohandas whose identity has been stolen in order to make benefit the mafia of UP. It starts with suspense and when the story advances, we think of our judicial system.

How grave the loopholes of our system are that one can steal a person's identity and live an affluent life? This film notifies us about the system, the democracy and the judiciary. The characters are nicely written and since it samples real life occurrences, I give it a 7.2 out of 10.

With a shabby cinematography & poor editing, it is not a classic but a sure winner. A must watch!

BOTTOM LINE: Recommended!

Profanity/Violence: Strong
