Doesn't live up to expectations.

I have to admit that I was really looking forward to Grahan's release. The basic plot sounds good enough. Parvati (Manisha Koirala) is raped by some Chief Minister's son. He doesn't let her go until all her wounds are healed. When she does get away, she lodges a report against him, only to have his lawyer (Jackie Shroff) accuse her of being a whore. The CM's son gets away scot free while she's rejected by her fiance's family. What happens to her next is what form the basis of this film. This film had the potential to be a hit, but it focused too much on Manisha's "madness", thus neglecting her actual trauma. Her behaviour is unlike that of a rape victim. I wish the makers of this film had actually done some research before venturing to make this film. The songs really seem out of place and they're highly mediocre. Tamil films' Raghuravan is utterly waster in the role as Jackie's brother. This guy is too good an actor. They should have given his role more depth. Come to think of it, none of the characters are developed enough for the audience to relate to. I couldn't even sympathise with Parvati.

Grahan is a "could-have-been" kind of film. Watch it only for Manisha's acting.
