About the Movie

On December 3rd, 1984, a Union Carbide pesticide leak killed more than 10,000 people in just a few hours in Bhopal, India. Based on true events, Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain chronicles the days leading up to the world’s deadliest industrial disaster. While muckraking journalist Motwani (Kal Penn) investigates a suspicious accidental death at the plant, American Union Carbide CEO Warren Anderson (Martin Sheen) faces plummeting profits despite the unregulated and ever-increasingly unsafe technology used by his Indian employees.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This is crudely mounted, earnest advocacy, getting its points across at any cost. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Nov 6, 2014

Fresh: Through "Bhopal," the filmmaker argues that the promise of jobs and prosperity all too often trumps environmental and safety concerns, and it leads government to ignore corporate wrongdoing. – Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times, Nov 14, 2014

Fresh: The all-too-real apocalyptic images are impressive, even if the mixing of drama and documentary doesn't completely work. – Graham Fuller, New York Daily News, Nov 6, 2014

A Cautionary Tale

It's amazing that such a lethal disaster as this happened in 1984, yet it seems like corporations and governments tend to make the same mistakes over and over again.

Martin Sheen turns in a worthy performance and the film really captures the heartbreaking tragedy that struck Bhopal.

Brilliant & Real

Very well acted, brilliant movie. What a tragedy. A lot thanks to Mr Yadav, Penn and all actors & actresses.
