Storyline

Krishna Patil is a poor, unemployed, unsuccessful and short tempered youth who stays in a chawl with his father Ramakant and elder sister Mansi. He tries to secure a job in the police department but fails. One day he happens to meet Kavita Choudhary, a young, rich, beautiful, intelligent lawyer. He falls for her instantly and begins wooing her. Kavita, having recently lost her father, stays alone and feels lonely and depressed. There is a certain void in her life. She is looking for someone to share her loneliness and an unemployed Krishna suits her requirements perfectly. Hence she accepts him as her boyfriend despite his mediocre looks, poor family background, jobless status and lack of personal hygiene. Written by Yogesh Verma

Re-defining P.O.L.I.C.E.
20 August 2004 | by gunwantiSee all my reviews

A very well-made movie, reflecting the current corrupt times in India, especially in Bombay City.

Of particular interest is the definition of "P.O.L.I.C.E.", which is supposed to mean P - Polite, O- Obedient, L- Loyal, I- Intelligent, C- Courteous, and E - Efficient.

In this movie a corrupt police inspector I.M. Ghodbole (Mukesh Tiwari) passionately re-defines P.O.L.I.C.E. as P- Power, O- Order, L- Liar, I- Incompetent, C-Corrupt, and E - Encounter. Unfortunately, as is systemic racism deeply embedded in Canada and the United States, so is corruption in India. There are solutions, but those solutions need tough love, and a will to change things for the better. This movie justifiably states that the courts and the law are available for a few affluent individuals; that people in power are above the law; and a non-existent media. Just my two cents.
