Dasvi Movie Story
Dasvi Movie The film is based on former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala, who was found guilty of a scam and served his sentence in Tihar Jail. During this period, at that time 82-year-old, he passed his class X exams while serving a prison term, fed up with his tag as an ‘illiterate politician’.
Chautala was a member of the Janata Dal, as a member of the Janata Dal, for the Janata Dal from July 12, 1990 to July 17, 1990, from December 2, 1989 to May 22, 1990, with three short terms, four Bar was elected as the Chief Minister of Haryana. Then; and from 22 March 1991 to 5 April 1991 for the Samajwadi Janata Party.
His only full term as Chief Minister was for the Indian National Lok Dal from 24 July 1999 to 4 March 2005.
In 2013, Chautala, his elder son Ajay Chautala (father of Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala), and 53 others were convicted in the JBT scam case and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for corruption. In 2017, while he was serving his sentence, he appeared in the Class X board examination from the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) at the examination center set up for prisoners in Tihar Jail.
He appeared for Social Science, Science and Technology in Hindi, Hindi, Indian Culture and Heritage and Professional Studies exams. Scoring 267 marks out of 500, he passed with second division (53.4%), and was 82 years old at that time!Abhishek Bachchan plays the role of corrupt politician Chautala in this film.
To maintain the chair in the family, Gangaram ensures his wife (housewife Vimaladevi, played by Nimrat Kaur) as CM in his absence. Initially reluctant to get his hands dirty in the hazy world of politics, the wife suddenly falls in love with him after having tasted power and fame. Vimaladevi no longer wants to play the second fiddle and prefers to address Gangaram’s ring as ‘the CM’s husband’.
Unaware of his wife’s overnight political ambitions, Gangaram is also taken into custody by jail superintendent Jyoti Deswal (Yami Gautam Dhar), who reminds him that he is illiterate. The feudal officer refused to give special treatment to the privileged politician.
Reluctant at first, she encourages him to study in prison because there is no greater eye-opener than education and knowledge. The story is largely inspired by former Haryana CM Om Prakash Chautala.
It’s never too late to learn something new. No matter how embarrassing or challenging it may be, starting from nowhere, no matter how late, is all about being successful. Director Tushar Jalota has tried to explore this idea through his 2-hour film. The intent is true and the performance is honest, however, the setting and the way of storytelling get too far-fetched and sarcastic to keep you engaged.
Everyone behaves as if they are in a poorly scripted drama that relies heavily on coercive humor. That is not to say that the dialogues are not effective enough. Some lines are smart. “If the mall is built, then the goods will come. Unemployment will increase if the school is built. But sharp intelligence is few and far between.
