Storyline

Appalled at the manner lawyers treat less affluent people, Vikram Saigal decides to do something for the poor, who have a legal cause of action, but are unable to afford a lawyer. He discusses this with his girlfriend, Rithika Sanyal, and together they come up with several ideas to raise money to create an organization to help the poor get legal aid at no or reasonable cost. When this plan fails, Vikram decides to rob a bank, but Rithika does not support him, and they split up. And then Rithika is killed and the police charge Vikram with her murder, relying on considerable evidence and witnesses that will go to show that Vikram did indeed commit this crime.

Marginally worth watching but only once
29 November 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Moksha is a classial example of an Indian movie that lacks originality and attempts to show a sequence of events in a Hollywood style. The movie is basically about a law graduate (arjun rampal) who studied law because of his passion towards helping those who cannot help themselves. Money was never an incentive for him to practice law. This dogma of life caused problems between him and his father (oberoi) because his father was a money motivated person and resented his son for his way of thinking. Further into the movie, he meets and falls in love with a naive, vulnerable but good looking young girl (manisha) and they begin to spend a lot of time together. Eventually, he begins to confide in her. After witnessing injustice at a local village where several impoverished people underwent a momentous amount of suffering, he decides to open up a charity foundation for the poor and needy. However acknowledging the need for funding, he explores all possible "legal" avenues but fails to get the funds. Even his father turns his back on him. This compels him to use illegal methods to obtain the required funds and during the course of doing so, he begins to turn insane. So thats the plot of the movie. The problem with this movie is that it mimics the Hollywood style of direction (i.e. the black and white flashbacks and the obscure dream) and overall seems very illogical. The plot however was very good in my opinion, but unfortunately, the movie failed to demonstrate it effectively.

If you like movies like "phir teree kahani yaad aye", "Daddy", "Jo Jetee howee sikandar", then Moksha is a below average movie.However, if you are crazy about Indian movies and relish watching all kinds of junk, then Moksha is a great movie. I give it ** / ***** (2/5 stars)
