Do we actually know the truth of Bihar? Killings, kidnappings, corruption-that’s all we know. And Prakash Jha decides to do a brave attempt of presenting to the viewers the actual truth of Bihar in the movie ‘Apaharan’The main characters in this movie:Ajay Shastri (Ajay...Read More

Well crafted original movie
Apr 13, 2009 12:33 PMRead
Apaharan is a hard hitting movie dealing with many social issues such as the descent of educated youth into the world of crime, the politician-gangster nexus, the kidnapping business which is a thriving & lucrative profession in Bihar...mainly it deals with the practice of kidnapping for money, ...Read More

I’m not here to justify any viewpoint or justify any individual decision. I just want to put forward some practical questions, some real life situation. I won’t give any judgment but I would like to seek suggestions / comments on these issues. I know we won’t be able to solve anything but at lea...Read More


The changing face of indian Cinema
Oct 30, 2006 08:36 AMRead
Its great to be able to go to a movie now and watch something which you can relate too. It's a regular feature today, to read of incidents such as those narrated in the movie. The movie also throws forth a realistic perspective of not just the happenings but what takes a normal honest man and th...Read More

Life is a struggle!!
Jul 04, 2006 11:53 PMRead
Ajay Shastri is an unemployed son of a social activist. The father is influential but he does not use it to get a job for his son, because he believes in his son’s own strength to make it big. He calls press conferences and keeps exposing the corrupt government. Ajay even goes to the extent of b...Read More

A classic eye-opener

The film revolves around two phases of human life in today's scenario. First, the length of influence of politics and bureaucracy on the life of general publicin BIHARand secondly, the importance of being "truthful","devoted" and "committed" to one's values and traditions.The film has beauti...Read More

The film brings a fresh, new and real perspective
Apr 18, 2006 10:48 PMRead
This film tells an unoriginal story in an original way it makes u feel like you have never seen anything like what happened. What I mean the film brings a fresh, new and real perspective to a stale story. This film deals with real issues not only in politics but in our personal lives. It deals r...Read More

I have just joined this website today and thought I Might as well give in some feedback on something I know about. I saw this film about a month ago and I saw it for.. what else.. dont be surprised, for Prakash Jha and Ajay devgan. Their previous film Gangajal was just too good..Being amaetu...Read More

I rented the movie with very high expectation, however after watching all my high hopes were shattered. Despite the heavy weights such as Nana and Ajay who are very good in dark and underworld movies, the movie is a disgrace to the such good actors. The weakness again is script. Loosely based on...Read More

Jan 13, 2006 04:01 PMRead
Explosive...nothing else can describe this movie..i managed to get front row seats and I was cursing my luck for sitting soo close to the screen but when ajay devgan sprang into action,i never regretted it one bit..if there is one actor in this industry who lets his acting do the talking(and min...Read More

Prakash Jha at his best
Jan 05, 2006 08:13 AMRead
Well I was waiting for the dvd release to see this movie. In spite of all those critical reviews which said the second half was over-dramatic I thought the movie was very well made and maybe open some eyes about the kind of politics in Bihar and UP. As usual I do not like to discuss the plot to ...Read More

Slick Action !
Dec 27, 2005 06:02 PMRead
When Nana Patekar and Ajay Devgan - two powerful actors come together in a single movie, one can expect some great stuff and I was not disappointed with the movie Apaharan which I saw last week. I went to the movie with my wife and we were surprised to see a near empty hall with very few women i...Read More

Reality bytes

To be honest I did not want to watch Apharan, I was literally dragged to the cinema hall. I thought it would be the same cliched crime caper. But, ten minutes into the film and I realized how wrong I was. It is one of the most thought provoking films which have come out in recent times. This is ...Read More

I usually prefer watching movies with light topics and less serious issues. Therefore I had postponed many times watching of movie Apaharan This Sunday I went to watch this movie with my old hostel friends. After the movie I regretted why I haven’t seen this movie before.In the initial...Read More

Hard hitting
Dec 18, 2005 05:22 PMRead
Yet another hard hitting film by Prakash Jha.This time on the successful kidnapping industry of Bihar.How does he manage to make films that have a social context attached to it & yet is non judgemental is something that our other movie makers can learn.A young guy(Ajay Devgan) leading a ...Read More

Where is Bips
Dec 16, 2005 04:37 PMRead
I like prakash Jha's style of movie making. But frankly speaking, I was completely dissappointed. After Gangajal, I was expecting a lot from Mr. Prakash Jha, but his Apharan didnt live upto the expectation. To start with movie is too long. The cast is very good as always the case with Prakash Jh...Read More

Really Good!!!!
Dec 16, 2005 10:18 AMRead
I was sure that I would not be bored in this movie as it was directed by Prakash Jha who is in touch with the reality of Bihar. Wonderful performances by all (including Bips surprizingly!), typically rustic Bihar locales and use of typycal Bihari phrases in the dialogues made watching the movie ...Read More
