A must watch
9 July 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Anthardwand tells the story of a young man who is abducted as the groom to a rich man's daughter. While this may seem like it turns everything about the marriage system in India on its head, what really transpires is just the opposite.

Set in Bihar, the movie traces a side of India's flawed marriage system that is usually not looked at. It raises questions that are uncomfortable and with no easy answers.

The direction is top class with no wasted scenes. Every scene in the movie is carefully weighed and placed like a chess piece on a board. The acting is capable, but the story is so good that you don't need amazing acting to bring the story to life.

A must watch.
