A movie of rape that will make you hate it beyond limits...!!
23 September 2018 | by Tejas_Vinda_AITSSee all my reviews

It is a very dark movie, as dark as the truth of condition of women and kids in this country, as how every girl child and women is a potential victim in this country.

How big sin it is to be a poor. This movie will shake your every inch with the kind of detailing it does with every scene, making your feel ashamed and angry as an Indian and over the society in which we live.

A 10 year lovely kid is raped and thrown in junkyard. For police it becomes a case to extort money from the influential person while victims are further victimized and terrorized. It is conveyed to them that thinking about living with dignity is foolish for any poor otherwise even most basic things like earnings and bread better too would be difficult.

A truth in a nation where criminals rule and where rape has become a sort cultural activity of Indians. A nation where law enforcement system has become devoid of law and just enforcement system, works on payroll of criminals..this movie compells u to think that you need to go for justice on your own way.

It is your responsibility to ensure anyway that you don't accept such crimes just silently and dead. This movie is grim dark and may distrub you with the kind of detailing it has done of everything...including the psyche of a pervert rapist, a poor father who always feels sorry for failing for his family though poverty is not his mistake and its misery is not his fault..he looses his hand in machine..still he feels sorry that he would compell his family to more hardship.

Such scenes bleed your heart. It even strips naked of the fact that how migrants are easy victims of so called son of soils who do crime without any hitch just coz they are locals. Every scene is sharp and well detailed in short.

Performances: Such movies are performance and content oriented always. Sushma Deshpande has done a terrific job as a revengeful grandma. Sadia is also good. Sudhir Pandey as butcher in short role impresses a lot. The villain's performance is that u start hating him so much that u wish that you could chop him into pieces as if left he could keep on victimizing. I don't know much of the rest but they are equally superb.

Finally, it is a movie of rape that will make you hate it beyond limits...it is needed to be watched by everyone so that even those who r still sleeping in slumber should get a boiling blood and zero tolerance about the menace which has become epidemic for India and where every single girl child is under danger in this perverted society. It is just pity that such movies don't find even screens and distributors and criminals like Salman Khan and his useless movies still enthrall this sleeping society in a dark hall!
