Yeh Mera India movie has seven stories woven into one. The film sees Perizaad (Jennifer) as a TV channel head who is paired opposite Dabas aka Sameer, a computer engineer. The film touches upon issues involving minority rights, urban migrants, reservation and corruption.
Certain issues continue to make waves and hit headlines. Issues like the influx of people from the Northern states to Mumbai, or the one where, allegedly, residential societies don't seem too keen to allot flats to members of a particular community...
N. Chandra encompasses all this and more in Yeh Mera India. The style of narrating the stories is akin to Chash, while the storytelling is similar to Chandra's accomplished works Ankush and Pratighaat - two films that made him an iconic figure then.
Yeh Mera India Yeh Mera India is sharp as a blade and yes, it does re-open old wounds. The film works in most parts because you identify with most stories, but how one wishes Chandra would've kept the length of the movie in check. Final word? Yeh Mera India has its heart in the right place. Here's a film that pricks your conscience and makes you think. Recommended!
