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.

Shivam returns to his aimless lifestyle, this time in Hong Kong, still continuing to work for Bharat.

One of the best Indian movie of 2006
18 September 2007 | by jatintSee all my reviews

Awarapan was different, nothing same like other bollywood romantic craps..

There are a few Indian movies which are worth watching like Kalyug, Gangster, Rang De Basanti and this one..


Action: 7 out of 10 (John Woo style)

Story: 7 out of 10 (Awesome story with a nice Indian culture touch)

Direction: 8 out of 10 (Mohit Suri did it again)

Originality: 4 out of 10 (Scenes taken from A Bittersweet Life)

Casting: 8 out of 10 (Emraan Hashmi, Ashutosh Rana, Purab and the Paki girl were amazing).

I give it 7 out of 10 overall.
