Synopsis
While the plot has a very humane touch to it and the characters reek of realism, the end would have made perfect sense had we all been living in a perfect world.

STORY: An efficient employee at a chemical plant, which exploits its workers and compromises with their health and safety, decides to take matter in his hands and bring the culprits to justice.

REVIEW: Jay Gohil (Rahul Bhat) is bogged down by his domestic responsibilities and struggles to make ends meet, while battling a demon of an employer Ketul (Mehul Buch) at work. His fellow workers, some of whom have lost their lives to excessive amount of harsh chemicals in their bodies and the subsequent medical negligence, unanimously decide to make him the leader of their newly formed union.

The worker union versus its management battle has been a universal problem. Violation of human rights prevalent in this industrial space often inspired 70s Bollywood films. Director Sanjay Patel's attempt at bringing to light the plight of thousands of factory workers works well in fractions, but gets too far-fetched in parts. While the plot has a very humane touch to it and the characters reek of realism, the end would have made perfect sense had we all been living in a perfect world. 'Union Leader', from being a tell-all drama, shifts to being an ambitious Bollywood flick in no time.

Both Rahul Bhat and his on-screen wife Geeta (Tillotama Shome) as a righteous middle-class couple looking for a miracle to transform their lives are a natural and so is the ruthless goon Mehul Buch.

Despite having an element of pragmatism in the film, 'Union Leader' crumbles towards the end because of poor execution, thus making it another run-of-the-mill movie about rich versus the poor, powerful versus the powerless.
