Mad Dawg

Synopsis
Feature film. A gangsta version of Macbeth which was not given a commercial release. The reasons may be obvious - ‘searching for a plot to justify its creation, Salman pilfers from the play to structure what is a cheaply made, poorly shot film whose every third word is an expletive’ (Lehmann, op cit).
