Gulzar’s highly appreciated movie on the political scenario in the country, said to be inspired from the life of “Indira Gandhi”. Though the influential factor is quite debatable but it’s indeed a movie which deeply touches some darker issues of the society. A real eye opener on how elections are fought by exploiting the youth and deliberately involving criminals in the process of funding the election proceedings.

It shows that for politicians, their position and their image is of utmost importance in life, more than anything else. They can even sacrifice their families and their personal lives for the sake of it. Sanjeev Kumar, in the role of a lonely hotel manager proves once again that he is a master of his art. Interestingly there is only one female character in the entire film. And that is of Suchitra Sen, as the lady politician surrounded by all male party workers around her. The combination of Gulzar & R. D. Burman is in full form in this emotional but intense drama with some great musical gems. Go for it if you are a lovers of quality cinema.
