Bikaner-based 28-year-old Dilip Kumar Singh is enrolled in a Rajpur-based Law college, and rents a room with an unstable male, Rananjay Singh. His attempts to re-locate to a hostel, pits him against a group of men, led by Jadhwal, who not only assault, but also molest him, and then lock him in a dark room with a naked and abused female, Anuja. He recuperates in a hospital and joins hands with Rananjay and Dukey Bana to avenge this humiliation, as well as befriends Anuja, who is a Lecturer in the college. He also decides to support Rananjay, who is legitimate son of a former Raja, to run for college elections - and it is this decision that will shatter and change his life forever.

Trivia

In the movie there is a scene where Mahie Gill's character asks Deepak Dobriyal's character if she resembles Tabu, which is a reference to the actress Tabu. This is because many people in the industry at first glance have complimented Mahie Gill that she looks so much like Tabu, and even the actress Tabu herself has commented this. So Anurag Kashyap wanted to put this idea in the movie. See more »

Anurag has done it again
15 March 2009 | by dearketanSee all my reviews

This is another film I went to see just for Mr. Anurag Kashyap. He has done it again. A film with no Glamour but pure story, pure politics, pure hard core film. The revolves around Mr. Dilip Singh. He comes to study but is being dragged into politics by the surroundings. This film once again shows us the effects of Ragging in universities. It has shown the real life incident of Ragging. When I watched the movie I never felt like watching a movie. But it was like someones story being telecast live. The music is very nice. The character of the Bana the singer and his pet friend half men and half women is very touching. The actors have done their part very nicely. It never seems like anyone is acting. But like they just doing what they are supposed to do.
