Storyline

When college student Aniruddha meets pretty co-ed Niharika, they quickly become romantically involved. Unfortunately, their relationship can't escape the politics involved in sex and gang life. When Aniruddha meets Ranvijay, a big man on campus prone to toting a gun, he believes he's merely helping his fellow student escape from a rival gang. It's not long into their friendship, however, that Aniruddha realizes Ranvijay is just using him as a means to get to Niharika. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Realistic movie about caste based university politics and inter caste love in India
12 August 2006 | by atulmohan1See all my reviews

It is one of my all time favourite movies. The caste based politics and subsequent violence which is a reality in universities (in India) is depicted in a realistic manner. The love story of two college kids from a typical orthodox middle class society in India grows as the plot thickens. The depiction of the middle class society, family values, aspirations, class/caste barrier is very realistic. Irfan Khan has given a powerful performance as a university student turn political figure using violence. Ashutosh Rana is also impressive in short role as leader of students of higher castes.

The movie is a like a breathe of fresh air, when most of the bollywood movies based on college love stories and college politics touch these real social issues superficially. The climax of the movie is a bit let down though. But even then the movie is a definite 'Must-see'.
