    Don’t stop believing: Newton must live

    The story of Munshi Premchand Panch Parmeshwar is the story of two close friends, Jumman Sheikh and Some Chowdhary. Someone is called upon to fulfill duty as Sarpanch in a dispute with Jumman and his old aunt. To everyone's surprise, Algu reigns for Jumman's aunt. Jumman is furious at this betrayal and promises revenge. He gets a chance when it is his turn to mediate between Algu and Samhu Sahu.

    As soon as he takes the seat of Sarpanch, Jumman recognizes the importance of his position. So transformed, a fair decision ends, which favored Algu. Panch Parmeshwar is an extraordinary story, as ordinary people can tap into their inner sense of fair play, justice, justice, and dedication to duty when put to the test.

    Panch Parmeshwar has echoes in two films about idealistic officials - Satyakam by Hrishikesh Mukherjee (1969) and Newton by Amit Masurkar (2017). The Mukherjee film is based on the Narayan Sanyal narcotic novel, Satyakam, and was among the main films of this decade. Satyapriya (Dharmendra) is a civil engineer who builds a dream in his hand to build the nation. His problems start almost immediately.

    Satyapriya is shown as stubborn and inflexible in her devotion to the straight and narrow street and has no inclination to return the romantic openings of Ranjana (Sharmila Tagore). When Ranjana is sexually assaulted by her employer, Satyapriya marries her in a fit of remorse. But the guilt pursues him, and there is no romance in the marriage.

    The plot is tragic, and the viewer's heart sinks with every twist in history. The volatile salvation comes only to the last dying moments of Satyakam when he can convert Ranjana into his case.

    Satyakam was written by Bimal Dutta and Rajinder Singh Bedi. The narrative was linear and the characterization of Satyapriya was difficult. Dharmendra has done justice to the role of a broken hero. Rogues are easily identifiable - powerful people who use the Raj license to make money. Bedi's sarcastic line over Satyapriya, "Yeh aadmi bahut hi badmaash aur paaji hai, rishvat vagerah nahin khaata (This man is a rogue, does not take bribes)" shows the changing mentality of India in the sixties.

    Although the despair of Satyakam appears, there is also a ray of hope that even if there is a Satyapriya among us, the Indians can survive and thrive. Perhaps Satyapriya Hrishikesh was Mukherjee's idea of ​​a Gandhian who does not awaken his duty at the expense of the neglect of his family duties.

    Newton's titular hero (played by Rajkummar Rao) is equally inflexible in his dedication to duty, although what is exactly his duty when he understands it correctly and is able to fulfill it is subject to the interpretation of the spectator.

    Unlike Satyapriya, who is Raja Harishchandra and Yudhishtra rolled in an unpretentious Newton is still mythical proportions. He is an ordinary person and is more likely to invest in human relationships, and this aspect of his personality can save him from destruction.

    Newton is a Gandhian, who also follows Ambedkar (the image of it decorates the wall in his place). Newton may have resisted his parents against the marriage and dowry of the children, but perhaps he would not be against marriage. Satyapriya is a loner. Newton leads his team, either the local recruit Malko (Anjali Patil) or the old hand Loknath (Raghubir Yadav).

    Newton faces a complex situation in his first job. It is not enough for Newton to be the president of an election in a city of Chhattisgarh. He must understand for himself, which means "free and fair choice". He faces the paramilitary officer Aatma Singh (Pankaj Tripathi), who also diligently fulfills his duty.

    Satyapriya must fight against the easily recognizable enemy of the state; Newton must face the defenders of the state, who do not share his world view. In one of Newton's earliest sequences, his coach tells the character that his problem is that he has a visible chip on his shoulder. Newton seems convinced that he is the only honest person around, and in this regard he is as flawed as Satyapriya.

    Another big difference is that Newton is naive, but a quick learner and is waiting for the right opportunity to win the top. Satyapriya represents all honest officials who lose their lives while they fight against corrupt forces (like Satyendra Dubey) because they do not know how to play the game according to the rules. Newton survives because he uses his mind.
    We need more such heroes, weak and weak as they can be. We need sincere young men and women who understand what the public service means. We must believe that a weak can take over the power of the state to defend constitutional values ​​and protect the interests of its fellow citizens. We must believe that an ordinary leader in a government office can become a "Panch Parmeshwar" when the opportunity demands; an official who believes in an India, where there is room for all. We must believe in Newton, who lives in each of us, even those of us who are cynical in the civil service, who have long abandoned idealism for realism.
    We let Satyaprija die. Newton must live.
