Storyline

Ajay Shankar Sharma and his mom, Shivani, live a poor lifestyle until one day when Shankar's maternal uncle, Deviprasad, comes to visit them and bequeaths a a large estate and wealth for their well-being, on the condition that they improve their home-town Sundergarh, the responsibility of which lies on Deviprasad's son, Sarjuprasad. Ajay and his mom agree to do so. Shortly thereafter his mom and Deviprasad pass away. Ajay manages the Bombay-based business, and frequently sends large sums of money to Sarjuprasad for the development of roads, and a new school building. He then receives a number of anonymous letters informing him that Sarjuprasad has not been putting the money to good use. Ajay decides to pay Sundergarh a visit, and is shocked to find that the money has been misappropriated. He decides to work with the villages to build a new school building. This does not auger well with Sarjuprasad, who vilifies Ajay's name, making him look like a big city Casanova. Matters do not ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A social drama in a rural setting. Accumulated wealth, over generations can do good. But what are the obstacles.
19 May 2014 | by mg-gopalanSee all my reviews

Wealth in rural India is power, as elsewhere in the world - but more so.

Ajay Kumar has an inheritance mandate to improve living conditions in his ancestral village.

A close relative is the villain of the piece, who wishes to retain control of the village, its people and continue to exploit.

While the plot is thematic, direction is weak, editing is worse. Stunts in the denouement are good.

The movie exposes conflict and collaboration between rural and urban India.

Worth watching if you have an interest in rural India.
