Storyline

Devastated when she is told that that her sister, Jessica Lall, is shot dead by Manish Bhardwaj, the son of Pramod, a Congress party Member of Parliament in Haryana, Delhi-based Sabrina Lall, in the company of her parents, attends the Court to view a charade that will lead to the acquittal of the accused and his accomplices seven years after the incident. Disillusioned by rampart police corruption and inefficiency; a stagnant British introduced legal system; the passing of her mother & the hospitalization of her father, she retreats unto herself. Then foul-mouthed NDTV employee, Meera Gaity, known for being more of an activist than a Journalist, takes an interest in this incident, and uncovers conspiracy & corruption that led to the accused' acquittals - leading to a near India-wide protest. While preparing herself to participate in a candle-lit procession at Delhi's India Gate, Meera will confront Sabrina and will come to know the reasons why the latter refuses to be involved in this...

A Must Watch
8 January 2011 | by bollycriticSee all my reviews

Wow! Now that's great film-making. Always good to see a hard-hitting movie with a conscience, and this one goes at it full force. A glimpse in to the power-based society that is Delhi, I knew little of the Jessica Lal case before watching. While entertaining yet quite scary in its portrayal of the common (wo)man's value in Indian society, the film does ask some good questions about our world and humankind in general. Think something like this could never happen in other parts of the world? OJ Simpson, anyone? The film is really lifted though thanks to the convincing portrayals by Vidya Balan and Rani Mukherji. The latter plays convincingly to the gallery, and the former is completely deglamourized and convincing in her little sister avatar. What a great way to start a new year for Hindi cinema. A few scenes are not 100% convincing or over-dramatized, but it doesn't matter. I loved the great scenes between Meera and her boss the most. An eye-opening way to rationalize the often sensationalized and under-cover Indian journalism.

Kudo to Raj Kumar Gupta. Must now catch the director's previous flick, Aamir.

For those of you who wasted your hard earned money on crap Bollywood movies like Golmaal 3 of late, here's your chance to support good cinema at your local box office. Don't miss it.
