Tros, Tyriusve mihi nullo discrimine agitur

We fixed the generally and universally relatively poor quality English subtitles for this movie as well, as a couple of others along the way we found on the net in order to provide you with a much better and certainly superior version than any other we found at the time of this posting.

The theme of this movie is best summed up by a man who, while riding in a Police
wagon (completely corrupt at times it would seem from this movie version equally too)
in this movie towards the end, says to fellow prisoners who were picked up with no
reasonable cause whatever, that he hoped "some day, India will be a better place than this".

The devastation caused by poverty over time, religious strife and superstition inflicted
on all too many that would have been innocent to vent against in this regard, the cruelty
of seeming injustices that go on historically due to a lack of a better consensus it would
appear (or the will too perhaps) to rein in such behaviours - all this shows a country in
sad shape for those in the situations depicted in this decades old movie - nevertheless
suggesting a persistent situation without relent possibly to the end.

This sorta movie is in no manner a favourite movie of mine at all, however it is useful for
the purposes of being enlightened on the state of affairs that might just be persisting on
our planet so all can become aware of the global implications of the problems depicted and indicated.
