‘Katiyabaaz’ is an upcoming Bollywood documentary movie that depicts in details about electrical supply shortage that takes place in Kanpur’s industrial suburb. Loha Singh is regarded to be the local Robin Hood, who steals electricity to help businesses and homes to function normally, which otherwise is hit by the day long power cuts that often take place here in the city. The first female electric supply chief on the hand has vowed to get rid of every type of illegal connections and to increase the supply. This documentary is slated to be released on the 22nd August, 2014. The trailers have been enjoying raving reviews from the audience, even though it has the documentary tag in it.
The directors of the movie are Deepti Kakkar and Fahad Mustafa and it stars Loha Singh as the savior of the town from the power outage menace. With the city facing power cuts up to 15 hours in a day, people in hundreds have been risking their lives for stealing electricity, so that they can at least enjoy what modern amenities and technology can provide them. The very first look of the poster itself has been inspiring many to view this movie once it hits the cinema hall.
Mustafa and Kakkar have been trying to show the different aspects of the issue and follow both the bureaucrat, who is known to head the electricity supply corpn, and an electricity thief who undertakes tasks to steal electricity and helps out the citizens to live a normal life. Ritu Maheshwari has played a wonderful role, as the electricity chieftain, however, is not the villain. As the movie shows, she has been working under several severe limitations herself, while people like Loha Singh trying to steal electricity only worsens her case. The story of the movie is something, which applies to many parts of this country, which struggle to match the requirements of the common citizens.
