A must watch. An excellent portrayal of brutal backstage reality of sacred 'laal salaam' drama.
Anupam Kher acted well. but do not expect 'saransh' performance here in this movie. he is a professor or recruiter(Gabbar kind of). Pallavi Joshi was exceptional. Arunoday Singh puts up a decent performance as a young revolutionary top college kid who steps up against the exploitation of poor innocent tribal people in the name of fight for equality of the same people. The movie shows how people under the mask of Marx-Lenin left ideology and devil of corruption slowly eating our nation. Due to bitter truth shown in the movie none of distributed yet agreed for commercial release of film. Movie has been screened at over 30 film festivals. and has won many of awards. although the movie was removed from the scheduled list at National Film Festival as someone is ensuring that people do not watch it. This will clear up some of 'what who why' in the recent JNU incident. Inspired from Agnihotri's own life, "Buddha In A Traffic Jam", dealing with corruption and Maoism, is set in a business school where a professor and a student, who is set to create a revolution.
Undoubtly a must watch parallel cinema which is rare now a days.
