Storyline

This story revolves around Malhar Gopaldas Agnihotri, a out-of-work actor, poor, and dependent on his father, who is heading for retirement. Malhar knows that he can act, very well indeed, all he needs is some encouragement, and some money. He gets neither. His father is abusive, and even gets physical with him openly in front of all the neighors, and even the neighborhood. Malhar loves a young lady named Apoorva Choudhury, but his affections are mis-applied, as Apoorva only regards him as a friend, and she loves Nihal Joshi, a Police Inspector. Frustrated at the lack of love and encouragement, Malhar takes recourse in an exercise, an exersise that will put him in direct confrontation with the law, as it starts with murder.

Highly underrated
18 July 2015 | by kothawade-amolSee all my reviews

Just few pointers : 1) I felt i watched a masterpiece after watching this movie and was surprised to see rating of 6.4 on IMDb and below average collections on box office. Unbelievable ! That's why i am writing this review. 2) If you have not watched yet, then please go and watch. There are at least 4 scenes in the movies, which would make you feel you are utilizing your time for good. (I have watched many Hindi movies and they do not even have one scene which would make one feel money and time are worth spent.

Enjoy !

It is sheer brilliance of the whole team associated with this team.
