Sahi Dhandhe Galat Bande, written and directed by actor Parvin Dabas is not the first film on development and displacement. There have been innumerable films made earlier that has brought our attention to the struggle and misery caused by vacating people from their land in the name of progressive development. Film makers have time and again tried experimenting with the true saga.
Sahi Dhandhe Galat Bande is a story of a group of four friends Rajbir (Parvin Dabas), Sexy (Vansh Bhardwaj), Ambani (Ashish Nayyar) and Doctor (Kuldeep Ruhil), who have big dreams and aspirations. Fauji played by Sharat Saxena gives them a job that will give them all the money that they require. In the process they have to go against their conscience and deceive their own villagers.
The plight of land owners who have to sacrifice their land is brought out well as also the link ups between the politicians and the industrialists.
The narration of the story is not consistent. Director Parvin Dabas is unable to keep the audience engaged at all times which shows his inexperience as a film maker.
Sahi Dhandhe Galat Bande will make the thinking audience question and help us focus on the problem of dislodgement. Though the film highlights a key national issue, it is in no way monotonous. The movie has it's own share of happy moments. However, one cannot help say that the director has not done complete justice to the story.
Performances by all actors are commendable.
Sahi Dhandhe Galat Bande a socially responsible, thought provoking cinema. A decent watch!
