‘Honour killings’ is a social malaise that continues to be practised in the rising, 21st century India. Priyadarshan’s film Aakrosh takes inspiration from one such real incident of honour killing and weaves it into a story that aims to provide a glimpse into the deeper recesses of our caste divided society.

The movie stars Ajay Devgan, Akshaye Khanna, Bipasha Basu, Paresh Rawal and Amita Pathak.


The film revolves around a lower caste guy who had gone along with his 2 friends to a village - Jhanjhar in Bihar, his native place, to watch Ramleela. These 3 students of Delhi University go missing in the dusty village. In the previous 3 months there was no clue where the young students have vanished. Media and students movement all over Bihar takes a pivotal step for getting hint of these students, its then government appoints CBI officers Siddhant Chaturvedi (Akshaye Khanna) and Pratap Kumar (Ajay Devgan) to find out the truth.

A person residing in Bihar himself, Pratap understands the intricacies of race relations in small towns like Jhanjhar. Pratap tries to use his charm and smartness to crack investigation whereas Siddhant has a very no non-sense, direct approach investigation. It's simply a clash of personalities and ideologies.

Investigating in Jhanjhar becomes a tough task for these officers as the local police force Headed by Bhura Ram (Paresh Rawal) with the help of local MP's and landlords run a major branch of the Shool Sena.

At the same time the two officers cannot break the ice with local low cast community members, due to years of fear instilled in them by regular and highly planned Shool Sena attacks. Roshni (Amita Pathak), daughter of the most powerful and richest person of village, acts as a key element to reveal certain realities and give a new direction to the investigation.

Soon the effect of their investigation causes mayhem in Jhanjhar, with riots, burning of houses and killing of peasants in broad daylight. Slowly Pratap with Siddhant's help starts cracking the case by exerting his influence upon Geeta, (Bipasha Basu), a victim to the same inhumanity, who acts as a final key to the investigation. How amongst the animosity created by Shool Sena and the fear of losing more peasants do Pratap and Siddhant solve this mysterious case is explained with a chain of exciting, funny and intelligent events that form the climax of the story.

Aakrosh is set to release on October 15.
