The film is set in Bhaglipur in Madhya Pradesh, where a young entrepreneur Kamal Kushwaha aka KK (Chaitanya Naidu) is trying to generate employment by starting a milk factory for the villagers. In this quest, he bonds with a farmer Shankar (Onkar Das Manikpuri). The local MLA Pratap Singh (Mukesh Tiwari) needs money for his election campaign and targets KK Industries to generate it. His secretary Sukhiram (Pankaj Tripathi) approaches the KK Group but is turned away. What follows forms the crux of the story.
The first half of the film is a drag and it is only post-interval that the story picks up. Not only is the writing flawed, so is the execution. But debutant director Shiv Dube does handle a few scenes well. For instance, the rally scene, where KK addresses the villagers. But with an unconventional story, Dube fails to impress.
Background score is good and takes the narrative forward. Some frames are sluggish, which bring down the pace of the film. Editing could have been better. The run time of the film is too long. Cinematography is fine. Locations and costumes are good. Dubbing is flawed and there are too many cinematic liberties.
Many scenes fail to capture the essence of the script and evoke the emotions of each character. For instance, when Shankar finds out his daughter has been killed, the way he emotes is weary.
Performance-wise, Mukesh Tiwari plays his part well. He stays true to his character throughout the film. Pankaj Tripathi does justice to his role. Onkar Das Manikpuri is wasted and has nothing much to offer. Chaitanya Naidu, who marks his debut with this film, is a misfit for the role. The rest of the cast fits the bill.
