As a heated race for the post of chief minister erupts between the incumbent and a challenger from his own party, political passions play out behind the scenes as seen through a journalist's eyes in this landmark drama. Directed by Jabbar Patel and inspired by Arun Sadhu's novels Mumbai Dinank and Simhasan, the film -- one of India's earliest political pictures -- stars Arun Sarnaik, Shriram Lagoo and Nilu Phule.
