    IMDB wrote:
    When ruthless Don (Amitabh Bachchan) is killed by the police, the DSP (Iftekhar) is afraid that another “Don” will take over when the rest of the gang come of know of his death, so he, unbeknown to the rest of the police force, recruits Don’s look-alike Vijay (also Amitabh Bachchan) to become the real Don. Vijay is, at first reluctant, but when promised that two children he is caring for, will be looked after and educated, he agrees. He is successfully re-located back with his gang by feigning injuries, and loss of memory. He soon recuperates. Then fate takes an unexpected turn when the DSP is killed and Vijay becomes the suspect; his role as the Don ends, as his gang comes to know he is a fraud; Vijay must run for his life – both from the police and Don’s gang – for his life, and the life of the two children.Read More »

    Director Rahul Jain presents an intimate, observantly portrayal of the rhythm of life and work in a gigantic textile factory in Gujarat, India. Moving through the corridors and bowels of the enormous and disorientating structure, the camera takes the viewer on a journey to a place of dehumanising physical labor and intense hardship, provoking cause for thought about persistent pre-industrial working conditions and the huge divide between first world and developing countries. Since the 1960s the area of Sachin in western India has undergone unprecedented, unregulated industrialisation, exemplified in its numerous textile factories.
