      Audience Member A good movie dealing with the serious issue of the Naxalites in INDIA! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Very interesting film well written and worth the watch Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Though he turns in an earnest performance, Suniel Shetty is just not built to play a poor farmer. The movie starts off okay, but then peters out - first into predictable territory and then towards the end into a farce. It raises some important questions but offers no answers. One of the most awkward of those questions is - 'What was Naseeruddin Shah doing in this movie?' Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member a powerful insight into the lives of the guerilla..nice performances however the treatment kind lacked....wondering if it was a docu-drama or a bollywood movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Drama, Harsh reality, a bit boring! - About a harsh reality of (Nexal Movement) how Farmers (land) have been getting exploited by their local Landlords (& have to Fight for Food, Education, & Land)! - Moral: Sometimes Educated learn from Uneducated (Violence is never an answer)! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a very well made movue. This has to be one of the best performances by Suniel Shetty. I was imprssed by sameera reddy also. Nseeruddin shah in a very very brief role was awsome. Vinod khanna was just ok. the supporting cast was great.The story line was great and did not drag even for a second. Really liekd the movie and am sure this movie wont be liked by everyone as it doenst have ANY masala.... overall a well made movie.

      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Ananth Mahadevan's new film, based on a true incident, could have been an interesting, if not entirely novel, look at the proliferating conflict zones over-run by opposing forces if he had kept Bollywood-style artifice out of it. Rated: 2/5 Apr 12, 2019 Full Review Rachel Saltz New York Times The film, much of it set in a rebel camp in Andhra Pradesh, seems torn between two storytelling modes: episodic with a documentary flavor and action-driven pulp. It makes a hash of both. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 9, 2010 Full Review Adam Keleman Slant Magazine Red Alert overtly hammers away ideas about corrupt bureaucracy squashing the little man. Rated: 2/4 Jul 8, 2010 Full Review Nora Lee Mandel Maven's Nest Broadly uses the universality of melodramatic emotions to overwhelm specifically set moral and violent battles. Rated: 5/10 Jan 2, 2016 Full Review Nora Lee Mandel Film-Forward.com Broadly uses the universality of melodramatic emotions to overwhelm specifically set moral and violent battles. Rated: 5/10 Jul 9, 2010 Full Review Frank Lovece Film Journal International Even charismatic star Suniel Shetty can't generate interest or excitement in this earnest drama of India's internal conflict with the Maoist "Naxalite" movement.
