apaharan Synopsis

Ajay lives with his stern, honest, disciplinarian and Gandhian widowed father, Prof. retd. Raghuvansh Shastri. Ajay works as a salesman, but soon finds himself out of work. He applies for a position with the Police, but is turned down, even though he always makes it to the merit list. Finally he borrows 5 lakh rupees to bribe his way on the merit list, & soon his name is shown on the shortlist. Just before his selection, major differences crop up between Home Minister Dinkar Pandey and his dad, with the later threatening to expose the corruption within the State Ministry. Dinkar ensures that Ajay's name is dropped from the shortlist, and the money-lender sends his goons after him, giving him 3 days to come up with the money. A desperate Ajay decides to be part of the lucrative kidnapping scheme in Bihar, abducts a Government official and demands a ransom so that he can re-pay his loan. Unfortunately, this Government official was under the protection of underworld Don, Gaya Singh, who carries out his operation from prison. When it is discovered that Gaya is involved, the abduction goes awry, with Ajay being arrested by the police, held in a cell, where he is severely beaten and humiliated by Gaya Singh. Ajay is discharged from custody when no one identifies him. Ajay is enraged, frustrated with his life, and he decides to take kidnap another government official. This official was on the list to be kidnapped by Gaya Singh, under instructions from corrupt MLA Tabrez Alam. When Gaya finds out that Ajay is behind this kidnapping, he locates and decides to kill him, a tussle ensues which results in Gaya's death. Ajay then takes over from Gaya and is accepted with open arms by Tabrez and his men. What Ajay does not know is that Tabrez is a ruthless man, who has killed his very own nephew, the son of his brother, Usman Alam, when he became an informant for the police. When Ajay's popularity grows, he is invited by Dinkar to join forces with him, as everyone from a lowly Police Constable to the Home Minister gets a share in the ransom money. Ajay refuses, however, Tabrez is misinformed about this and thinks that Ajay is against him. Now Ajay finds himself alone, as even his father has forsaken him. The girl he hoped to marry, Megha, no longer cares for him, and the police want him dead or alive - that is if he can escape from the clutches of Usman and Tabrez first.

apaharan Preview

Filmmaker Prakash Jha comes up with yet another movie that raises a socially relevant issue - that of kidnappings. While kidnapping is supposed to be an incident of crime for ransom, in certain Indian states it has become a proper, well-organized industry. This is what Jha's movie Apaharan explores and exposes.

Apaharan marks the teaming up of Prakash Jha and Ajay Devgan once again after Gangajal . Apart from Ajay, the movie stars Bipasha Basu , Nana Patekar , Mohan Agashe, Yashpal Sharma and Mukesh Tiwari.

The movie has Devgan playing Ajay Shastri, a man burdened by the expectations of his highly principled and self-righteous social activist father (Mohan Agashe).

Ajay aspires for a job in the police force, which is his ticket to a future of power, respectability and social status.

Bipasha Basu plays Megha, a girl who loves Ajay and wants to be his moral support in the times of crisis.

Megha thinks she understands Ajay. But their ways are perhaps destined to go separate.

Nana Patekar plays Tabrez, a minority political leader. He is an influential figure who literally runs a parallel government that has undercover links with the criminal world.

Ajay's life is turned topsy-turvy after certain unfortunate incidents. He is forced to take the road that goes deep into the belly of crime and underworld. It is a road that takes Ajay far far away from what his father had envisaged for him.

Apaharan aims to expose the vile culture of kidnappings that has dogged the Northern Indian state of Bihar. The film asks some bitter and hard-hitting questions relating to the very social fabric of what is deemed as a civilized society.

The film tells the story from the perspective of an ordinary man who is sucked into the whirlpool of crime because he is not strong enough to fight the influential people who have evil intentions and who exercise their power with an iron fist.

Apaharan is produced and directed by Prakash Jha. The movie has special appearance by Cleo Isaacs. She plays a bar dancer with a soft corner for Ajay.

Apaharan is slated to hit the theatres on December 2.
