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)

1 July 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A bittersweet life has come to Bollywood in a better-sweet way.Congratulations ,Vishesh Films,you guys have got a winner this time..The team comprises of one of the sharpest minds in Hindi Cinema in the form of Mahesh Bhatt,a 20-something fantastic director(with 2 hits in his kitty) ,a 20-sumthing actor(who despite giving many hits is still in the B-league),fantabulous music from across the border.After accumulation of all these positive factors, WHAT YOU GET IS a magnificent AWARAPAN ..

A movie that talks about gangsters,human-trafficking,betrayal,love,freedom,God and Atheism. You cant ask for more in those 12 damn reels...The best part of the film is the spiritual vision of the director..just fabulous..Haven't seen such thing in the commercial film segment of Indian cinema.

Emraan Hashmi in his new ChuckNorris-eque look is stunning...This performance will take him in the A+ league of actors..He has proved that his acting is just not about lips..Just damn good..A star is born?? No ,a star's acting abilities have finally stunned the world in Awarapan.

Music is beautiful and the song placements are a masterstroke..

In short,calling it a classic will be blasphemous but calling it a spectacular cinema&bollywood at its best, is no sin... WONDERFUL PAISA WASOOL MOVIE..WATCH IT
