Every now & then, a small film comes by that deserves to be watched. Katiyabaaz is one such film. Telling a story that we all know but have not seen through this lens, the film is moviing at times & powerful for the most of it.



1. A taut documentary thats almost a disguised thriller.

2. Some brilliant lives to delve into, especially Loha Singh & Ritu Maheshwari

3. Phenomenal camerawork that makes it an engaging fare

4. Great background score to compliment the film.



1. The film gets slow in parts but picks up pace again.

2. Not the most exciting premise for a docu, i.e. power problems.



Overall, its a great film, one that should be given its due. Only issue was that I wasn't in the mood to watch a docuemntary but if thats your drift, run now!
