Several lines from the film including: “Poochne ke liye zinda rehna zaroori hota hai (One must be alive to ask),” “Mauka sabhi ko milta hai (everyone gets a chance),” “Hum unke darr se fayda hai … maut se nahin (we profit from their fear and not their death),” and “Apne dhande mein wohi jeetta hai … joh pehla haath marta hai (The one who wins in his business is the first one to die)” among many others are used even today.
Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, the film was written by Saurabh Shukla and Anurag Kashyap. The film was initially planned to be an action film but was later reportedly changed to be a movie on felonies after meeting some criminals.
‘Satya’, which follows an immigrant coming to Mumbai looking for a job, befriends Bhiku Mhatre and is drawn into the Mumbai underworld, also stars J D Chakravarthy, Urmila Matondkar, Saurabh Shukla, Aditya Shrivastava and Paresh Rawal.
