| The Story that Never Was
So perhaps this film has broken box offices internationally, perhaps it is being perceived as one of the best films of all time, but heres the thing, it was only regarded a 'moderate' film in India where the story is home.

Why? Well the truth is, the film industry has once again glamorised and exaggerated the story of someone to their endeavor.And only the people at home know the truth. Although disputed, its common knowledge that Santokben Jadeja at least inspired the movie, one of the most notorious gangsters in the Gujarat inspiring a movie would suggest some sort of mafia reincarnation such as Goodfellas or Scarface. In my personal opinion, Rambhi was made to look like a heroine, 'a woman fighting to live in a male-dominated world'?? A woman who actually doesn't care about any women but herself, who sits back and watches murders and other atrocities happen in the hands of her own son. No this is not the real tale of this woman, she is glorified in Godmother, in real life a villain, a monster, a beast. This is why the Indians refused to watch three hours of rubbish in the cinema, refused to waste their money and time when they could see the real truth from their front window. The film is just that, a film, not biographical, not reality, not truth.
