A bad movie with a decade old theme
2 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'Grahan' is eventually released after a delay of more than one year and sadly it disappoints. 'Grahan' is the story of a rape victim Parvati (Manisha Koirala) who quests for justice after being declared a prostitute at the court by an established lawyer, Jaggu (Jackie Shroff) and humiliated in public.

The film fails on all accounts. Be it editing, cinematography, music, lighting, choreography and last but not the least, direction. Manisha Koirala appears confused as the rape victim. She doesn't do much till the end to get out of her miseries. Jackie Shroff is mundane. Anupama Verma was strictly okay. Prasad Purandhare doesn't appear as menacing as he should be. Avoid!
