Maachis

Maachis - Hindi word for Matchstick - is a metaphor that conveys state of mind and on-the-edge feelings of alienated youth in any country driven due to the deficiencies in the political and law enforcement systems. It is realistic, hard-hitting portrayal of terrorism and youth in the Punjab during "Operation Bluestar" in the aftermath of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's assassination and the 1984 riots. The story traces the transformation of a youth from a boy next door to a dreaded terrorist bent on wreaking vengeance. It portrays anguish of a young man over the detention and torture of his bosom friend after his  arbitrary arrest by Police for the alleged murder of a politician, an offence with which he has no connection whatsoever.  An award-winning masterpiece by Gulzar features haunting and soulful music by Vishal Bhardwaj.
