RED ALERT- The War Within, Where everyone is Right and Wrong, is in the news, literally and otherwise. The film, a gritty tale of a farmer trapped in a Naxalite movement has shown an uncanny resemblance to the torrid headlines of the past few weeks, everything from the attack on a cop station, the explosion of landmines and the police killings are reflected with alarming accuracy in the film, making it the topic of discussion in high places including the Government machinery.
The volatile dialogue is another talking point of this human adventure that has been acclaimed by critics as "taking Indian political cinema a step further towards the mainstream currency". Will this take Indian cinema to realistic new heights or will it end up ruffling the feathers of the ministers in charge? Or will it climax with the Naxals themselves taking an unscheduled call?
A war where everyone is right....and wrong. It appears to be a RED ALERT on all quarters!
