Quotes

Karikaalan: Land belonged to someone else before us, and it will belong to someone else after we're gone. You can't take even the dirt on your grave with you. So why act in such a way?
Haridev Abhayankar: What you have said, I know very well. But even if all I can get is the dirt on my grave, I will be very happy. Is there a problem?
Karikaalan: There is a problem! To me, land is life. To you, land is only power!
Haridev Abhayankar: And power is my life.

Almost based on real facts ...
17 June 2018 | by andy2324See all my reviews

This movie reminds a lot of real facts happened in Mumbai... one of the prominent leader in Mumbai called for Lungi Hatao movement ( kick out Lungi wearing South Indians from Mumbai)... later him committed a lots of communal riots in Mumbai...many innocent lives were lost during this time... unfortunately Mumbai still poses same risk even today ...
