        After surviving a plane crash, the blandly contented suburbanite Manu is killed in a head-on collision that is as tragically banal as her earlier accident was miraculous. Ricocheting between these two poles of the mundane and the fantastic, the forces of fate that stem from Manu's death begin to knit a rich tapestry of chance, choice, and emotion among the disparate array of people connected to her in life. Like P.T. Anderson's Magnolia, Austrian director Barbara Albert's FREE RADICALS is a character mosaic that is both a trenchant critique of an anemic, modern world as well as a reminder of the irrational threads that hold it together.

This news does delight Kashinath Trivedi, and his men, which include notorious gangster Zafar Supari. But there is a catch, as there are two honest police inspectors who prove to be thorns on their sides, and they are Inspector Arjun Ranavat and Hyder Ali, two inseparable friends. Kashinath's attempts to separate the two with the assistance of corrupt Police Commissioner, Yeshwant Pandey, are in vain. Then Zafar Supari takes over the task of separating the two. And he succeeds, and as a result Hyder Ali is killed in a fake police encounter on the grounds that he was a Pakistani spy; while Arjun Ranavat, whose attempts to avenge Hyder's death, results in the deaths of 18 people - results which prompt the Police Commissioner to dismiss Arjun from the police force, and issue orders for his arrest - dead or alive. Arjun is captured alive and his trial commences, with one of the allegation being that he was having an intimate affair with his very own sister, Rakhi Dixit, as well as having underworld connections, and killing 18 people. Will Arjun be able to answer to these charges? Or will he become another victim to Kashinath and his men. Written by rAjOo ([email protected])
