Storyline

A newspaper reporter exploits an ordinary man for few rupees to pose as a man who is fighting against the corrupt politicians and prints imaginary stories in his name to improve the circulation of her newspaper. People take him for real and he becomes a powerful leader of poor man. One day the paper prints a letter in his name that he is going to end his life fighting corruption. This puts the ordinary man in a fix. He knows that at this juncture he can't refute the accuracy of all those stories. He also realizes that he is the sole hope of millions. Finally, he buckles under moral pressure and jumps from an incomplete multi-storied building and ends his life. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

One of the most powerfull performance by the powerhouse called Amitabh
18 March 2004 | by register-28See all my reviews

As Azad, Amit ji sends a beautiful message and the way he organizes the movements are well defined. In the movie, Amitabh towards the end doesn't go for a revenge style of movie. He doesn't justify or blame any thing in his last message. This makes movie different from the other masaala movie. He works for a cause.

A meaning full movie, good dialog and above all great acting by Amitabh. Film industry require more such movie. Film has got just one song which is quite meaning full. in the role of Azad, Amit ji has done justice to the role. He was excellent in the way he played the role of a stranger and in the costume of powerful personality called Azad.
