story opens up with Amsa Devi being released from the
prison – after 14 years of imprisonment. There
is pretty much no answer as to why she was incarcerated
and hence the initial expectation fizzles out sooner.
What follows is a rollercoaster ride of variety of emotions
including betrayal, double-crossing, vengeance and disillusionment
told with tacky production values.
Saamida follows the life of Amsa Devi, who was sold
to prostitution in Mumbai at a tender age. She becomes
a mistress of an underworld don and they relocate to
Varanasi when a gang war threatens their life. Amsa
takes over the business after the don is butchered in
a gang war. Business flourishes and she adopts a boy,
after witnessing his valor in slaying a Police Officer.
The boy (Sembi) grows up and becomes inevitable for
her business and falls in love. Now Amsa feels an urge
to give up the underworld business and insists that
Sembi follows suit too.
If the plot summary did not make you frown, the botched
up screen play, mind numbing action sequences and a
sub-plot of a love tale that ridicules the viewer’s
common sense makes up for the rest. Not to mention Ragasiya’s
item number and the ear-drum cracking music.
