    An arm-chair critic cannot be a creator but a trash-maker or simply copycat. Madhur Bhandarkar is one whose films are nourished with first-hand references. It is possible because of his extensive research-work into the project he is going to translate on to the screen. For this Madhur rubs shoulders with the particular characters, gets himself accustomed to the ambience and apes the languages which the story sincerly call for. None has ever been so meticulous in bringing the ills and evils of the corporate world to light. Years before Govind Nihalni made a film "Party" dealing with the characters of the "top-brass"emphasising their mannerisms, ill-feelings, illicit relations etc. But, Madhur in his film "Corporate"has thrown light upon the acts of scheming, plotting, jiggery-pokery, hoaxes and pretexts of the corporate world that knows no ethics, morals , morels, delicate emotions and sentiments. The plot revolves round the persistent rivalry between two groups of industries dealing in soft-drinks. There is hot chase for capturing markets, for which they stoop to any level. In this world human beings are treated like commodities. Nishigandha Dasgupta ( Bipasha Basu), an executive of The Sehgal Group of Industries benefits her company by her venturesome steps and is rewarded as a share-holder of the company. But, when the Company is alleged to have adulterated the product with toxic pesticide, the company's fate is jeopardised. Now, Vinay Sehgal, the M.D of the company is up to utilize Nishi's romantic involvement with his brother-in-law. K.K Menon( the brother-in-law of Vinay Sehgal) is conditionally convinced to impress his sweet-heart to shoulder the blemishes and is assured of her release from the clutches of law before long. Nishi (Bipasha) does so for the sake of love, for she is a dreamer for a happy family. The Company gets rid of the cisis. But, there comes a need to obliterate the stigma for good. So there comes about an act of murder (corporate murder in true sense). K.K who has become strongly rebel against the injustice caused to his childing lady-love is silenced for ever. By the arbitrary of govt. representatives the two groups of industries shake hands. Bipasha alone in the world, with her baby in arms keeps knocking at the door of law. Here the movie ends with the freez-shot that suggests Bipasha's quest for justice is eternal. Years ago in the film "Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman" Navin Nischol who was also an industrial tycoon told his daughter Amrita Singh, who was romantically involved with the young, talented, middle-class engineer Shah Rukh Khan "In logo ko istimal kiya jata hai, pyar nahi". Yes. Such sensitive talents with moralities undiminished, are treated for "istemal". They are meant for being scape-goats.
