      Travel G One of the best movies of 90s and of Bollywood Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Satya is along with an on the edge of seat hard-hitting thriller, an untypically insightful journey of a man in the dark underbelly of city, who turns to crime because of circumstances but still remains a man whose heart beats the same as it does for an average bloke who has desires to beat circumstances and live a life unmarred by conflicts and dressed in familial love. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best Indian Gangster movies, canvassing the character of Satya & the city of Mumbai simultaneously. P.S:The Plot Synopsis provided on RT is wrong. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member "Truth" is regarded as the first Mumbai noir. In contrast to RGV's later works D and Rakht Charitra, this one still has the masala standbys of comedy, romance, and music videos. Quite dated now, it was critically acclaimed, won 13 awards, and inspired numerous movies. The most well known in America being Slumdog Millionaire. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Good Mumbai gangster drama. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member For the first time, the Indian audience saw a Hindi film which made them think about the issues which create an underworld don. Ram Gopal Varma established a world where gangsters were living a more miserable life than the people they ruled. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews
