Storyline

Two young sisters act against their family's "code of honour" and their lives become a deadly nightmare. Two bouncers at a popular club are attacked by criminals igniting total war. An award winning journalist presses charges of spousal abuse against her husband only to become a hated pariah amongst their common colleagues. But what none of their aggressors could have foreseen is the enormous will to fight and prevail that is awaked in the hearts of those threatened one time too many.

When darkness falls.......dawn isn't far behind,hopefully....
8 June 2008 | by vasudevan-arthiSee all my reviews

'I am so grateful that I have such a safe life and I hope I dot experience any incident of physical violence ever'. This is what I felt after watching this film. Hard-hitting and such realistic portrayals of violence among normal working class people like us are what makes this movie gripping. Ably supported by the cast, at the end all I was praying for was justice for the victims in the 3 stories. Hoping that all will be fine. It was so unsettling.

Even though I've rated this movie at 8, it isn't for everybody. Because its not pure entertainment that's playing out here but a disturbing story that will make one squirm in the seat. Good film.
