The film centralises on the concepts of justice and seeks to engender global awareness of the barbarous acts against human rights of 1984, which have so enraged the conscious of Punjab. The film depicts the effects of the systematic failure of the justice system through the plight of its female lead as she seeks revenge against those responsible for the brutal rape of her sister and murder of her family during the 1984 riots, in the hopes of achieving a cathartic resolution to her troubled life. The film is dramatic, poignant and well styled and has already received extensive interest in its energetic and youthful Punjabi sound track. The filmâ??s dramatic atmosphere enhances as Chaudhary duplicitously seeks out, seduces and eventually murderâ??s in cold blood those responsible for the murder of her family. However, whilst Chaudharyâ??s gruesome revenge is the culmination of a life time of angst, disillusionment in the justice system and loss; the film is quick to highlight that an eye for an eye is not necessarily the greatest form of retribution. In a retrospective moment at the films conclusion, Chaudhary herself is confronted with the ironic reality, that whilst she has avenged her familyâ??s killers; now she too has tainted hands. This realization of the human condition is startlingly made to her, when she confides in her fiance; played by the charismatic Lakhwinder Lakha; whilst he is sympathetic for the tragedies she has endured, he is unable to forgive her for her acts of murder and ultimately leavesâ?¦ The film is dramatic, suspenseful, touching and also thought provoking. It is littered with memorable characters and more importantly prompts the viewer to consider the human condition; the price of revenge and the consequences of our actions and the actions of others.
