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.

Moksha- The Salvation
23 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Director- Ashok Maheta *Arjun Rampal, Manisha Koirala

Simply brilliant! Moksha is a thinking man's dream film. Ashok Mehta done great job.Starring Arjun Ramphal and Manisha Koirala, Mehta's Moksha is an artistic look at the psychological trauma imposed on a good-natured man's mind by an uncaring and selfish world leading him to social deviance and despair. Arjun Rampal's best performance has been in this film, the way his frustration has been shown through eyes of anger is absolute world class. It's sad that he never performed so well in his life, the way he did in this film. . He is excellent in the dramatic scenes and is quite the natural with his facial expressions an emoting. I think he deserved best actor award that year. This film is honestly one of the most underrated films of Bollywood but a real treat to watch! So please folks. Do me a favor and please don't ignore this beautiful piece of art. It's not a perfect film, but it's just so good. It's evident why this movie is hitting the Film Festival circuit (It was recently screened at the Cairo Film Festival as well as the Locarno Film Festival). The film even picked up two National Awards at this year's ceremonies. So don't listen to some of lame-brained, intelligence-impaired, self-proclaimed trade analysts who gave this film the rotten review treatment. They wouldn't know a good film if it ran up behind them and bit them (You critics listening?). You'll be happy for it, believe me! Moksha is an excellent film. I can't stand it when an excellent film goes unnoticed. But hey, that's the Indian Film Industry for you.

9/10
