Director Trishul has woven a story around the character who is a sex worker, played by Veena. The story is about a young girl born in a poor family forced to become a sex worker. Though she tries to come out of it, society doesn't allow her to do so. Though the story can be described as old wine in new bottle, there is freshness in narration and script with good sequences. But the director could have done a better job in the latter part of the second half (before the climax) with sequences which are unnecessarily stretched.
The entire script revolves around Silk (Veena Mallik) hailing from a poor family in a small village. A localite (Srinivasamurthy) lures her to come to Bangalore promising her to make her a heroine so that she can earn good money. But he sells her to a brothel owned by Ammanni (Sana) who forces her become a sex worker. We have a good samaritan in our hero Shiva (Akshay), a reformed rowdy, who marries her. Ammanni gets upset and takes police help to harass Silk and Shiva.
The story takes a sentimental turn when Silk delivers a baby and Shiva is killed by aides of Ammanni. Silk also comes to know about her baby's health problem that requires Rs 25,000 for treatment. She approaches everyone she knows for help, but none comes forward. The climax has some touching sequences.
Veena Mallik has given life to her character in all sequences. Akshay impresses. It's is Sana as head of a brothel who impresses with brilliant performance. Music by Jassie Gift has some catchy tunes. Camera by Jai Anand is impressive.
Indian markets are far more mature and have given their thumbs down to the controversial Food Security Bill. But the UPA government will do all it takes to indulge in such populist measures even going to the extent of driving the country down the fiscal drain. Fiscal deprivation just adds on to the long list of pitfalls of the UPA government including corruption, apathy, indecision and pseudo secularism. Its time for the people of India to fight back. Otherwise its the middle class and the hapless poor who will pay the price for supporting such a corrupt and inept regime. Come 2014 and the people of this country will set all the wrongs right and usher in a true era of peace and secular growth with Namo.
