What happens towards the end is a very disturbing situation because of the decision he takes after the dilemma that he faces while choosing between his mission and the lives he is going to kill.

About The Movie

In the district of Chandi Chowk in Delhi, an Urdu professor named Rajan Mathur lives with his social activist wife Roma Mathur and their daughter. It is a happy, warm and fun place, where life is full of joy and colours. One day, Rajan Mathur meets a victim of Gujarat communal riot, who calls himself Numair Qazi. They get to know each other and become good friends. However, what Rajan Mathur does not know is that Numair Qazi is not a victim of communal riot but a suicide bomber, who has been sent to set off a bomb on Independence Day near the Red Fort. Numair Qazi wins over the trust of Rajan Mathur and his wife so that he can live with them without anybody suspecting him for the mission. Masquerading himself as a victim of the riot, Numair manages to prepare himself for the mission he has come for. Rajan Mathur introduces Numair to the people living in Chandni Chowk. The life in harmony, peace and the love among the residents have made him realise how wrong he is going to be by doing what he has come to do. As the day comes closer, Numair faces a lot of dilemmas. However, he is also burdened by the orders from his superiors of the Islamic fundamentalist group. You can order online for the DVD of the movie and watch it at home with your family and friends.

  1.  Bullet in return to a Bullet is the easiest thing. 23 November, 2013 On
    Black And White: Bullet in return to a Bullet is the easiest thing.
    The movie is from Subhash Ghai. There is an excellent and sincere effort in reflecting the reality of life in good and bad aspect. Good always is loud, clear and sweet, bad always keep you intermingled, thoughtful, pondering, struggling within.

    Cast: Professor Mathur (Anil Kapoor), His wife – Roma, their daugher – a sweet dumb child, Numaid (a disguised terrorist), Shagufta – Professor’s student Location, story etc. etc.– the story revolves around Chandni Chawk, Delhi, India where Professor lives with his wife.

    Professor’s stream is Urdu, and hence is quite close to muslim literature and writers. Roma is a very open minded lady and is always brave enough to fight out against anything wrong around, happening with anybody irrespective of a hindu or muslim. Both believe in humans and relations without thinking whether he is a hindu or a muslim. Numaid is assigned a task of exploding a liquid bomb in VIP area during 15th August ceremony at Red Fort thereby killing 300-400 people sitting in the VIP area. For his mission he comes as an innocent person in that area and is able to gain Professor’s sympathy and attention. He starts living at Professor’s house and Roma starts trusting him as his brother. Numaid has to arrange an entry at the day of ceremony through Professor as the professor has a strong say in that area – in public, in administration, in police etc., everyone respects him.

    The love, passion, trust, positive attitude of Professor shatters Numaid’s strong terrorist in him and… One night before, on 14th Roma is murdered in the night, Professor stops this news going in public as he fears communal riots will happen immediately. 15th He goes to Red Fort along with Numaid. Both take their seats in the VIP area. To know what happened afterwards, who murdered Roma, why Numaid became a terrorist, etc. = spend Rs. 150 and watch it. Best Scenes:

    Almost all scenes are excellently performed, few to mention are:
    1. Professor’s effort to avoid crying and stopping his daughter from crying after Roma is murdered
    2. Professor performing last rituals of his wife alone with Numaid, silently
    3. Professor’s calm, the next day, at the ceremony
    4. Professor bursting out to tears at ceremony remembering his wife
    5. Professor telling Numaid about the colors of life
    6. Numaid’s fight within
    7. Numaid’s decision to not to explode bomb
    8. Professor’s saving of Numaid In the Nutshell:

    So in the nutshell it is a movie of just two main characters – good and evil, still others are optimally fit. It shows the win of good over the evil. The fight within the evil, the conscious constantly telling the evil what is wrong and what is right. Best Dialogues: “Agar un logon nein us-e suicide bomber bana kar ham tak ik paigam bheja hai to hamne us-e ek naya insaan banaa kar un tak ek paigam bheja hai” – Professor Mathur when asked by Shagufta – why he saved Numaid from Police “Aaj tak zindagi mein maine do hi rang dekhe the – safed aur kaala, aaj professor ne mujhe zindagi ke aur rang dikhaye” - Numaid Best song I remembered: jise log kehte hain hindustan hai yehi apne khwabon ka pyara jahan hai kai majhabon ka yahan pe nishan hai ye hindustan hai ye hindustan hai allah ishwar tero naam
