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

Hardhitting,Original & Intellectual with Irrfan Khan's best performance
20 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is not just a movie but a great depiction of the Northern India. Mr. Dhulia's directorial debut "Hassil" is a powerful drama about love, politics, deceit and of course our social values.

The plot will give you an essence of Northern India's politics and intrusion of politician with our tranquil lives.The story is set in Allahabad (Uttar Pradesh) and revolves around Aniruddha (Jimmy Shergill) and Niharika (Hrishitaa Bhat) fall in love. Ranvijay Singh (Irfan Khan) an aspiring politician and opponent Gauri Shankar (Ashutosh Rana) are the real people in charge of the University. Aniruddha's companionship with Ranvija Singh engulfs him into deep trouble along with his beloved.

Irfaan has done an astounding work, he is a born thespian. He goes straight into the character with amazing dialogue delivery in the local dialects of Allahabad. Jimmy Sheirgill proves that he can do wonders if he gets a good role. Hrishita Bhatt is fabulous as conservative college going girl and any north Indian girl can resemble with her. Sharat Saxena is veteran and looks like a real father who is worried on his daughter affair with other cast boy. Ashutosh Rana is just remarkable in his screen presence, with small role.

The dialogues are powerful in the proper accent of Allahabad, a great research and character study by the director.

The supporting cast was incredible and every scene looked so genuine that you will be engaged with the story. The voyage from a love story to a political thriller takes place in a first-rate pace. Thanks to Tigmanshu Dhulia who proves that we can make powerful cinema with an essence of rural India.

This is highly recommended for the natives who watch the movies according to the characters not the stars in it.
