Well,I would say 1980-90 has been the best decade for the Indian Cinema. Parallel Cinema came to rise n flourished. Salim Langde Pe Mat Ro comes under that category. The central character Saleem is an uneducated chap who fills his pocket by doing petty crimes. He dreams of settling down by doing something big.
The characters are the strongest point of this film. Actually had a doubt over Pawan Malhotra for this major role but he has been excellent.
The film depicts the thinking of the uneducated Muslims.The gradual development in Saleem is beautifully shown.He begins to question his integrity his existence.
Kudos to the director for not inserting any unnecessary vulgar scene.
His unemployed father, his mother,his friends,his courtesan girlfriend the somewhat gypsy,the hotel owner all leave their mark.
