This film throws gem after gem of the Hinduphobic Bollywood agenda at a rate of knots.

Sanju maligns the Shastras and misinforms a young woman about their wisdom so that she becomes sexually available to his friend. The following day, he informs his friend proudly about how he got rid of the “floozy” that cheated on her boyfriend with Sanju. Just then, he receives a call from a “Hindu terrorist” threatening to rape his sister and kill his father for doing charitable work in a minority-dominated area.

In reality, Dutt was arrested after the 1993 Mumbai blasts for illegally possessing arms, and Mumbai Police even released his conversation with Chhota Shakeel.

But when did Bollywood ever have the spine to show the truth?

In the film, Dutt played Shuddh Singh, a devout Brahmin and (hence?) a ruthless barbarian. His character flaunts a Shikha and a Tripund Teeka.
