The Aakrosh movie review

Watch it for performances

The Aakrosh movie review on ApunKaChoice. The more things change the more they remain the same. Just as the malaise of honour, rather ‘horror’, killings continue to haunt the modern, ‘incredible’ India, likewise the old habit of filching stuff from Hollywood remains rooted in the new age Bollywood. Not surprising that the two films releasing this Friday derive ‘inspiration’ from Hollywood.

Aakrosh takes the basic plot of the 1988 Hollywood movie Mississippi Burning and gives it an Indian spin with a story about honour killings in a society divided by the fault-lines of caste.

The film stars Ajay Devgan, Akshaye Khanna, Bipasha Basu, Paresh Rawal, Amita Pathak and Milind Gunaji.

Pratap (Ajay Devgan) and Siddhant (Akshaye) are two FBI...err...CBI officers investigating a case of unexplained disappearance of three young medical students in a village called Jhanjhar in the heart of rural India.

The three were killed because one of them, from a lower caste, dared to love and elope with a girl from the higher caste.

As the two officers investigate, they are faced with uncooperative locals who wouldn’t let out the truth for fear of being slain by the radical Shool Sena. Even the police, headed by the irrevocably corrupt and lecherous cop (Paresh Rawal) are hand in glove with the local politicos and goons from high caste.

So what ought to have been an open-and-shut case with the guilty promptly consigned to the gallows, turns out to be a spark to the tinderbox of the caste-divided Jhanjhar.
