Cast : Mithun Chakraborty, Sushmita Sen, Anuj Sawhney


Chingaari is a tale of rebellion against the tyranny of a powerful temple priest, played by Mithun Chakraborty. He is a sadist who terrorizes the villagers in the name of religion. Sushmita Sen plays a prostitute working in Ila Arun’s brothel. Mithun is attracted towards Sushmita and often comes to visit her. Anuj Saawhney comes to the village as the postman, and develops a soft corner for Sushmita and he rebels against Mithun’s tyranny. Now how Mithun deals with Anuj and how the villagers deal with Mithun is what the rest of the story is all about.

Production values are appropriate with location shooting in the interiors, and Vishal Sinha’s competent cinematography contributes to the authenticity. Aadesh Srivastava’s music lifts the film to some extent and the background score too is effective.

The main drawback is that the film lacks novelty and the tale of a priest openly terrorizing the entirely village is not convincing at all.

Performance-wise, Mithun Chakraborty brings the touch of the veteran. Sushmita Sen plays her role well, but overacts at places. Where Anuj Saawhney impresses with his sensitive portrayal, Ila Arun too comes across fair. As the director, Kallpana Lajmi’s work is below expectations.
