Storyline

Brought up by a gangster named Bharat Malik, Shivam Pandit lives a faithless and reckless lifestyle, doing the bidding of his mentor - which also includes being a hit-man. Bharat does not get along with his brother, Raj, and nephew, Munna, who also resent the fact that Bharat trusts Shivam more than he even trusts his son, Ronnie. Shivam's life does change when he meets and falls in love with a devout Muslim woman, Aaliyah. Shivam wants to wed Aaliyah, but her father opposes this due to Shivam's criminal background, and the fact that he has been in prison twice. When Shivam insists on getting married regardless of the consequences, Aaliyah's dad aims a gun at him, but Shivam ducks and the bullet hits Aaliyah, killing her instantly. Shivam returns to his aimless lifestyle, this time in Hong Kong, still continuing to work for Bharat. When Bharat asks him to spy on his Pakistani mistress, Reema, Shivam does so, and finds out that she has a lover named Bilal. Shivam agrees to it but ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Awarapan = A high class gangster movie
5 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie. It excels in all aspects of a movie. The direction is stylish and engaging, the acting (especially by Emraan Hashmi as the main lead) is superb, the music is excellent, and the story is realistic dealing with real life issues we have today from a gangsters point of view. Its cinematography was one of the best I've seen. It's very beautiful throughout the movie. Especially during Shivam's introduction and during the songs Toh Phir Aao and Tera Mera Rishta.

In terms of acting, Emraan was very intense and deeply embedded in his character. He played a depressed character with a dark past. He fulfills his boss's orders, but is also fearless and full of guts when provoked. He was truly Shivam in Awarapan. This has been Emraans finest acting till date. Shivam's role was meant for him. Ashutosh was amazing as his boss. His looks and attitude fit his role perfectly. The supporting cast, particularly Mrinalini Sharma, Shaad Randhawa, Purab Kohli and Shriya Saran fit their roles perfectly.

Music wise, the background score by Raju Singh was brilliant. It was soothing and touches your soul. The songs by Pritam and Roxen were great, particularly Mahiya, Toh Phir Aao and Tera Mera Rishta.

Awarapan is a movie that reaches out to you and resides in you. If you love gangster movies (or realistic action flicks) then this one is highly recommended for you. Nevertheless, anyone who enjoys watching good movies should watch Awarapan.

All in all Awarapan is a top class gangster movie. Highly recommended.
