Summary: The film opens with a man in prison for the murder of a politician. The backstory makes up the bulk of the film: who is the accused who goes by the name of Kuldip Patwal ( Dobriyal)? What propelled him to the point of pulling out a gun and shooting someone? And why is he keeping quiet, saying nothing in his defense?
Well made, this kind of plot could lead to a solid crime thriller. The elements are all there: a man who starts off by selling vegetables and ends up manning a tiny ‘parchun ki dukaan’, being thwarted by all-round corruption, and suffering one blow after another. From Kuldip Patwal’s point of view, everyone who doesn’t let him go ahead is the enemy: from the lowly government official who refuses to open his file, to the chief minister whose entourage blocks the road, and leads to a tragedy.
