Ek Doctor Ki Maut

Ek Doctor Ki Maut was one movie which holds 5 stars in my review comments. This movie portrait the classical governmental work structure which still persist in our country. The movie is based on a true story of a doctor who in his real life had committed suicide. In the movie Dr. Dipankar Roy (Pankaj Kapoor) is a physician who practices in a government hospital as a junior Dr. The only passion in his life was painstaking research at the cost of his personal life to discover a vaccine for leprosy. He avoids private practice just because this profession would offer him to go through variety of cases and leverage him with the expertise to research on the divine vaccine. Dr. Roy had set up his own laboratory including the caged lab animals to whom he treated like his children’s. Dr Roy toils away night after night. His wife Seema (Shabana Azmi) is a sublime character in the movie and she clearly understands what her husband is striving for. (I think her character had a temperamental shift and that exactly made her a normal person distinguishing her from being superficial) she at times had fight and craved for his attention. There is a lovely chemistry between them which I truly admire, the bonding between an ambitious person and a person who is completely in love with that person. Dr Roy’s efforts are supported by Dr. Kundu and Amulya (Irfan Khan). Amulya is a columnist who is keen on enlargements happening in the field of medication and human therapy, he is one point who acted as a direct interface between Dr Dipankar Roy’s and the medical world at large, he also updated Dr Roy with the worldly renew happening in the field of human medication.

Dr Roy after a lot of research publishes a paper to state his research. The news is broadcasted over the television and Dr Dipankar Roy’s as a junior Dr receives international recognition. His superiors including the head of health department restrain him from breaking the news, and as reward of aversion from senior’s and his fellow departmental colleagues Dr Roy is transferred to a remote village which is really messy and would permit him no time to research, but the experiment and research endured over unwarranted situations. Dr. Dipankar Roy is asked to report into his senior colleagues. Dr. Arijit Sen and Dr. Ramananda urge him to share his work, but that meeting is a pretentious way of humiliating the efforts of Dr Roy, after such incidence Dr Roy faces a mild heart attack and refuses to go to a hospital. There is a constant clash of ideologies and ill-fated bureaucracy and red tap-ism of the system. The movie almost comes to an end and you watch the despondent and helplessness of a Dr. There is a sudden turn to the movie when two people from a foreign land approach Dr Roy ask him to help there country in production of a dual edged vaccine, which while curing Leprosy would also effectively cure infertility in women.

But much as to my despair the story is based on a real life story of a Dr. Mukhopadhyay he was a pioneer researcher with great achievements, Dr. Mukhopadhyay committed suicide on 19th June, 1981. Dr. Mukhopadhyay was the first Indian to propagate the concept of a test tube baby though he made the test tube baby after 67 days on 3rd October on the same year when the 1st test tube baby was made on 25th July, 1978 by Dr. Patrick Steptoe and Dr. Edward named as Marie. The question that horrors me is who was the 1st in this experiment.

We think this profession is divine, godly, dignified and feel the holiness of helping the human society, but is it a real truth????? I think there is a dark, devilish world under the veal. My comments are completely based on the manipulative and tyranny structure every governmental system has, which is completely unavoidable.
