UTV Motion Pictures have released the first trailer of their upcoming film Satyagraha- Democracy Under Fire.
The national film award winner returns with Satygraha - a voice against a corrupt and unjust system.
All characters Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal look strong enough to carry out a film that claims to depict the first uprising of the common man in our country. The scenes showing police attack on public and candle light protests are captured perfectly, we feel.
Watch for yourself and share your thoughts.
