3. Breaking Stereotypical Thoughts on Caste System

Many of us are progressing forward in the society, throwing the long lasting bias on caste system that has been dividing people into upper and lower caste. This film perfectly shows that caste system does exist in our society and how the lower caste sometimes become victim for the things that they don’t commit. But, the film also shows how a person from lower caste like Mahima is now an inspector, who aspires to break these stereotypes, treat people as people and not on the basis of which caste they belong to.

This film also shows that a lot of girls who went missing in the village was not found rather they only exist in the photographs in the missing person records. Mahima uses this as an opportunity to find the gardener’s missing daughter Amiya and also hopes to find these missing girls someday.

Sanya Malhotra as Mahima, is convincing in her role as not only a determined and strict police officer but also as someone who is compassionate and someone who could solve puzzles of this mystery easily. Anant V Joshi as Saurabh, a struggling constable did a good performance. A brewing romance between the inspector and constable looks decent and not very exaggerated.

MLA Pateira is an old school superstitious person who is greedy to expand his political position with a very clumsy family and a spoiled child. Vijay Naaz as Pateira really fits like a perfect button on a shirt. Rajpaal Yadav with his comical appearance and dialogues, brings out quite the comical elements. Music was good with lyrics connected to the story and situation, interwoven with the film.
