New Delhi Times (1986) is as relevant in 2019 as it was back then
3 September 2019 | by the_movie_addictSee all my reviews

New Delhi Times (1986) is as relevant in 2019 as it was back then not because corruption, political and mafia nexus or downfall of morals and ethics is still pretty strong and very much accepted now but how things haven't changed for someone who is known for its unbiased, rightful and straightforward reporting and journalizing. The journalists, reporters, writers and the free voices of the world and places like India are k!lled, murdered and slaved by those who don't want the voice of truth to reveal something that is related to them and can harm their position or nexus or working. While this film hasn't seen a proper release at that point of time and even now it is still lies in obscurity, I hope digital streaming platforms up this up and make way for world to watch. When we can watch films like Nothing but the Truth, The Racket, Shattered Glass, The whistleblower, State of Play, The Insider, All the President's Men, or Spotlight 2015 then we should also watch this. Worth a watch for everyone.
