    the red-green alliance should not be surprising…one proselytises by sword and the other by the barrel of the gun…laugh away…the same nizam-e-mustafa or people’s power that you champion today will one day silence you…

    It is an absolutely brilliant script, layered and nuanced, and yet cleaves sharply to the issue of law — the new-age Tilism. Was great watching it amidst such a responsive audience.
