I don't get it, the Theme, the title and the film itself
Well I blame this on IBDB because the rating does not mean where it should be based on,either directing ,acting or any other thing.
But my problem with this film is what is it trying to prove, an issue with British rule, the Barbaric rule and acts of Indian origin administrators, the not united acts of Indian at the time.May be its because they were influenced by British but it doesn't justify acts of Indians, like not releasing labours and not giving wages or medicine.I see only 10 minutes of British ignorant about there workers in the film. Almost all the other time about Indians acting against their own. Fooling Indians to work without pay, acting as a Doctor,cutting the nerve of Rasa, Not been united when been attacked. To name a few. Yes British was barbaric but why doesn't it come out from the film. Yes it has some message but I don't know which one is it.
