What Is Bad

  • Boring screenplay
  • No essence in plot
  • Narration
Bottom Line: An unorthodox attempt in Bollywood which ends half-baked


Nutan Kumar alias Newton (Rajkummar Rao) is a middle-class government clerk from Chattisgarh who is assigned to conduct a fair election in the Maoist hit region as a presiding officer by a commanding officer Sanjay Mishra. Loknath, a government officer and Malko (Anjali Patil), a local teacher join Newton to help him. Newton tries to convince them to vote for their preferred politician but amidst all this Aatma Singh forbids them from voting. Will Newton be able to get their votes is what the film is all about?

Star Performance

Rajkummar Rao gives a performance worth a standing ovation yet again in this one. He portrays the correct amount of earnest eagerness to get the votes in the Naxal prone region. Pankaj Tripathi looks good in the role of a militant and does justice while showing off his grumpy face. Raghuvir Yadav adds comic tinge to a serious narrative.

Techinical Team

The movie writer cum director Amit Masurkar and Mayank Tewari have painfully captured the bittersweet essence of the people of an obscure jungle that's far-flung from civilization. This is also evident in the cinematography, where each shot is thoughtfully structured and lovingly composed. Meanwhile combined with a subtle sound design that's hard to miss this film has everything going for it.


The movie is set in the Maoist region of Chattisgarh, Newton is more of a personal rivalry between a presiding officer. Newton is an average attempt in the genre of political satires in the last couple of years but it could have been a much better portrayal of the bloodied Maoist area. It is not necessary to show Naxalites or an attack on the on-going voting but the journey of Newton looks like a preachy tale of a cynically honest officer and it is very silly in the climax.
