His associate, Keshav, is grievously injured, and is hospitalized in a coma-like condition. Parag's widowed mother, Alka, and Air Hostess girlfriend, Manasi Pandit, retain Advocate Harish Bhatiya to represent him at a preliminary bail hearing, but the Judge denies bail. Housed in an overcrowded barrack, with barely room to move, Parag meets with a variety of people - both convicted and awaiting trial - including Abdul Ghani, Kabir Malik, Galib Suratwala, Nawab, Bababhai, etc. Parag again appears in Court e after a charge-sheet is filed, but again, due to the seriousness of the offenses, fear of tampering with evidence and witnesses, he is denied bail.

Hard-Hitting & Moving...
4 January 2010 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

Accomplished Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar returns with a yet another Hard-Hitting & Moving experience in his latest offering 'Jail'. A film that shows a 'Jail' & it's 'Inmates' like never before. An Icredible Attempt.

'Jail' is a winner all the way, a film that is not only a gripping tale, but also, a film that you take home. After you watch 'Jail', one thing is for sure, and that is that you'll never want to attempt a crime or even dream about it in your nightmares. A criminal is a criminal, he needs to punished,,, no doubts on that. But there some people that are kept in those torture-cells, while some are proved not guilty or one's trial has not begun. A film that raises god knows how many questions, & seeks for answers. Well, god knows weather will they be ever answered or not!

In the acting department, Neil Nitin Mukesh steals the show with an Icredible performance. He's exemplary in the role of a wrongly-accused inmate. Manoj Bajpai is, as always, good. Mugdha Godse plays her part with honesty. Arya Babbar is excellent in a brief role. Others lend able support.

'Jail' is an eye-opener, a film that might have bombed at the box office, but this dark & gripping tale is sure to achieve a cult following in the coming years. Strongly Reccmended!
