An attempt to become rich through sincerity, hard work and talent is God-given right of everyone but those who use anti-social and foul means to amass wealth are bane of society. The haves and have-nots have always been in every society, country and civilization. Every era since the evolution of mankind has seen the brutality and repression of one section on the other. Whenever there has been excesses of such repression and unprovoked exploitation by the evilminded affluent members of society, nature has always thrown forth the saviours with missionary zeal who have avenged such excesses and restored the rights of the down trodden and under-dog. “AMIR-GARIB” tackles this eternal problem in quite a novel and effective way.
