Story Line: Lakshmi (Monali Thakur) is 13 years-old girl who has been kidnapped and sold by Chinna (Nagesh Kukunoor) and his brother Garoo (Satish Kaushik) to a brothel.

The teenage girl has been forced to become a sex worker. After two failed attempts to escape from the hell, Lakshmi is rescued by a local NGO. With the help of the NGO, she decides to put the two pimps, Chinna and Garoo, behind the bar. The film is an honest and appalling story of Laksmi’s journey to emerge victorious against all odds.

 

Movie Review: Based on true story, the film is an appalling and heat wrenching journey of a brave girl. While Kukunoor has directed this film with utmost intensity, singer turned actor Monali Thakur gives flesh and blood to the character of Lakshmi. Monali isn’t an actress surely but she does a brilliant job in the film. Her natural innocence and childlike beauty goes well with the character. Monali Thakur has taken a very bold step by making her Bollywood debut with such an unconventional film. In future, she has to be careful in choosing movie offers.

Nagesh Kukunoor has always made a mark as a filmmaker but in this film he shows his flair for acting.
The strong story plot moves one so much, that minor flaws remain unnoticed. There are few scenes in the film which might shake you to the core and you start relate yourself to Lakshmi’s pain. The dialogues of film may make you feel uncomfortable in certain situation. But when it comes to conveying the underlying message, there is no better way.
