     9A political thriller examining the links between 
     10crime and politics in a north Indian state. The 
     11editor of the English-language New Delhi 
     12Times, Vikas Pande (Kapoor) has to confront 
     13the politician Ajay Singh (Puri) who is 
     14associated with a powerful lobby of illicit 
     15liquor manufacturers. The trail of murders, 
     16sequestrations in insane asylums, beatings and 
     17the instigation of communal riots by political 
     18henchmen eventually leads to the corrupt chief 
     19minister, D.N. Trivedi. Made in the style of 
     20Costa-Gavras’s films and of Pakula’s All the 
     21President’s Men (1976), the film is inspired by 
     22the case of the Indian Express whose editor 
     23Arun Shourie exposed the criminal links of 
     24Maharashtra’s chief minister, A.R. Antulay. The 
     25owner of the Indian Express, R.N. Goenka, is 
     26the figure evoked in the film by Vikas’s boss, 
     27the publisher Jagannath Poddar (M. Singh). The 
     28film faced official censorship when 
     29Doordarshan initially refused to broadcast it.
