User Reviews

A decent movie where the one who wins is a people's guy!
8 August 2018 | by MuviFan73See all my reviews

Tone, Script & Story: The story is inspired from one of the true stories of an officer that existed in 1959. What is it about? Well it is for killing the lover of his (Officer's) wife.

How much of it is inspired, or how much of it is real, well if we consider just the movie, it is quite an entertainer. I have already watched it three times and I never got bored.

In the original story there, there is no mention of corrupt officials in navy. Thus when such a thing came to light in movie version it was difficult for me to accept. I however after googling found such things existed in defense as well if not earlier than sure in modern days one form or other.

Direction, Screenplay, Cinematography: Justified. Music: Very good. The songs complement the movie. My favorite track is 'Tere Sang Yaara' followed by 'Dekha Hazora Dafa'. Acting: Everybody was justified.

Final Verdict: Don't go searching for the reality that occurred, go for a decent movie. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
