- Dharm Adhikari (transl. Judge; Hindi: धर्म अधिकारी) is a 1986 Hindi -language action film, produced by U.V. Suryanarayana Raju under the Gopi Krishna Movies banner, presented by Krishnam Raju and directed by K. Raghavendra Rao.
- धर्म (Dharma) what is dharma:- किसी भी वस्तु के स्वाभाविक गुणों को उसका धर्म कहते है जैसे अग्नि का धर्म उसकी गर्मी और तेज है। गर्मी और तेज के बिना अग्नि की कोई सत्ता.
The story is based in Benares and is about Pandit Chaturvedi (Pankaj Kapoor), a highly revered and learned Brahmin priest. A baby is abandoned by a woman and brought to his house by his daughter. He agrees to adopt the child due to requests from his wife Parvati (Supriya Pathak) and his daughter Vedika (Ananya Tripathi). Life takes a turn when the boy's mother returns and says that she lost her child during the communal riots. After the family finds out that the boy is Muslim after they have become attached to him. The family gives back the boy to his mother. Chaturvedi engulfs himself in purification processes to cleanse his body, mind, and soul due to contact with a Muslim soul. By the time Chaturvedi thinks he is fully purified, the child reappears; seeking refuge, due to Hindu-Muslim riots and a group of people chasing a Muslim man to slay. This is when Chaturvedi realizes the true meaning of scriptures, that the true religion is humanity. The movie ends with a message of communal harmony that 'Dharm is not just penance and practice, Dharm is unity, Dharm is brotherhood, Dharm is non-violent.'
Dharma was premiered at the 60th Cannes Film Festival and became the closing film of the World Cinema Section at the festival; it was also the official Indian entry to the Festival. It was screened at 38th International Film Festival of India (2007), in Goa, and later went to film festivals like the Cancun Film Festival, Mexico; Asian Festival of First Films, Singapore; and the Palms Spring Festival, California. The film was awarded the Swarovski Trophy for Best Film at the Asian Festival of First Films.
At home, though it wasn't a box office success, it opened to excellent reviews from the critics and later the world rights of the film were acquired by Films Distribution, France.
Dharm was embroiled in a controversy in India, where it became one of the finalists for India's official entry to the Oscars, a race it lost to Eklavya: The Royal Guard.

Dharma Hindi Movie Pran Ajit
Directed by Bhavna Talwar
To miss this movie on the true meaning of religion is a crime for any cineaste. How much poorer one would be if one allowed this penetrating masterpiece to pass by without a standing ovation!
Debutante director Bhavna Talwar paints a map of the human heart in confident bold vibrant but gentle strokes.
Varanasi, the city of holy dreams and unholy nightmares, and the clash between old-world values and new-world connnivances, has seldom been captured with such exquisite and tender splendour.
Straddling this world of colossal pain and redemption as defined by the individual's desires and emotions, is Pundit Chaturvedi (Pankaj Kapoor), a potbellied, bare-torsoed symbol of religiosity who could easily have become a parody in lesser hands.
In the first half-hour of this tightly-wound homage to the aroma of incense on the angry ghats, the director establishes Chaturvedi's rigidly ritualistic world as qualified by the priest's own dormant, tolerant take on humanism.
The dawn scenes depicting the unruffled priest striding briskly through the gallis of Varanasi with huffing disciples in tow, as he's accosted by a sneering conniving opponent (Daya Shankar Pandey) are designed in vibrant colours bringing alive the predominance of ritualistic religion in a city that's submerged in so many subtexts.
The dramatic focus of the plot emerges when a baby is abandoned at the Priest's residence triggering off what can only called a conflict between religious compulsion and the individual conscience culminating in one of the most rousing and radical denouements on religious bigotry and communal prejudice put on screen since Man invented malevolence and cinema.
The narrative is driven deftly forward by a powerful script (Vibha Singh) and an editing pattern that embraces austerity at a time of tremendous dramatic excesses in the plot. What truly holds up this taut tale and rescues it from becoming perched on the ruinous precipice of polemical pirouette, is the debutante director's vision.
Bhavna Talwar's vision encompasses both acute sensitivity and immense compassion. The pulls and pushes of an ancient religion that remains dynamic in spite of its dark decadence, emerge in scenes that are written not to impress us with drama but to underscore the spritual underbelly of the plot.
Note the tangential appearance of a sub-plot where a girl from the priest's family (Hrishita Bhatt, stripped of her stripper's image) elopes with a foreigner.
Here, as in several other lucid passages depicting the clash of the modern and the revered, the narration refuses to be judgemental. Instead we get to see the city in all its tender splashy splendour without smirk sob or sigh.
Above all, Dharm works because it is at heart, a humane story. My favourite scenes in Dharm are the ones within Pundit Chaturvedi's domestic domain.
The bonding that grows between the priest and the abandoned 5-year old (Krish Parekh) is warm but sparing. You watch the father-foster-son relationship grow through a play of heartwarming emotions that don't assail your senses.
There's a similar holding-back in the Priest's scenes with his devoted docile and yet assertive wife (played with rare compassion by Supriya Pathak).
Brahminical arrogance meets a compassionate world-view in Bhavna Talwar's extraordinary portrayal of humanism kinship and tolerance.
The debutant director's penetrating take on how grim is the grass in the land of the divine and the crass, wouldn't have worked were it not for Pankaj Kapoor in the central role. As the head priest caught in a terrible dilemma that questions his entire ethos and commitment to society and religion, Kapoor ceases to be an actor once the camera switches on.
The supporting cast is extremely supportive. But it's doubtful the film would've worked its sturdy alchemy on the plot the people housed within,without Kapoor's 'non-performance'.
No assessment of Dharm can be complete without saluting the cinematographer (Nalla Muthu), the art designer (Wasiq Khan) and Sonu Nigam's theme song. All these add an extra dimension to this extra-ordinary film on the passing-forth of an era and culture as seen through the eyes of a god-head who finally believes reform is the only religious order worth pursuing.
Let's stand up and applaud the director of this reformist mellow-drama. Dharm could've been screechy, preachy and jarringly sanctimonious. Instead it affords us a look into the soul of a wounded civilization.
This film is Rang De Basanti without its anger and Lage Raho..Munnabhai without its satire. Dharm embraces the reformist genre without propagating vigilantism or facetiousness.
Don't frown or laugh at the evil within our society. Own up to it. Look at the rot straight in the eye. You'll re-discover the core of humanity that's been waylaid by the architects of 'Modem' India.
Dharm is an old-fashioned typewritten-transcribed screenplay (reminiscent in many ways of Yash Chopra's 4-decade old Dharmputra) written in words that are meant to reach into the remotest corners of the stoniest modern hearts.
Dharm leads you into the light without making a song and dance of the process.
Really, you can't miss this.
