Ashu Trikha produced and directed Koyelaanchal, a 2014 Indian Hindi-language film starring Vinod Khanna, Suniel Shetty, Vipinno, and Roopali Krishnarao. Every step along the way, the plot loses its way.
Saryu Bhan Singh, an ex-owner turned Mafioso in the region, reveals Koyelaanchal via his sheer ruthlessness and flagrant disobedience of the law of the land, forcing the people and authorities to recognize him as their “Maalik.” Any form of dissent, any form of protest, is met with spine-chilling brutality of epic proportions.
When an upright District Collector, Nisheeth Kumar, takes charge of the region and begins asking him questions that no one has dared to ask him before, things get a little uncomfortable for Saryu Bhan Singh. In the midst of labor unrest and Naxal uprisings, the last thing Saryu Bhan Singh wanted to do was make enemies with his region’s top government official. He sent Karua, his most devastating human weapon, to frighten Nisheeth Kumar into quiet.
However, the don’t-kill-just-scare-him operation goes tragically wrong when Karua injures Nisheeth’s wife and, in the course of fleeing, finds up carrying Nisheeth’s kid, abducting the youngster. What follows is a fascinating and heartbreaking story of how true power may be found not in the barrels of weapons, but in the tender touches of a child, the love of a mother, and the earnest prayers of millions of helpless people.
