Director: Lalit Marathe
Actors: Isha Koppikar, Pradeep Rawat
This is lead actor Isha Koppikar’s second film on female empowerment, if you may. The first one was a lesbian love-triangle called Girlfriend (Yeah, I’m kidding. Of course). The Times of India, I recall, had a three-word review for that 2004 masterpiece. It merely said: “Avoidable. Very avoidable.” This one, in comparison, is infinitely better. For sure.
The heroine is tanned from above the neck (strikingly fair-skinned around the shoulders). She’s supposed to be a street urchin. Her young brother’s randomly picked up by the police and killed in custody. For no apparent reason. She bumps off that rogue cop in return. The screen is dust-brown, dark, dingy, even grainy in parts. Drama mostly
