Storyline

Giving in to intense media pressure, the Home Minister in Delhi finally instructs the Central Bureau of Investigation to depute Special Officer Siddhant Chaturvedi to travel to Jhanjhar, Bihar, and work together with Pratap Kumar to try and locate three medical students from M.K. Gandhi Medical College. The three students, Gautam Sharma, Dhirush Patel and Dinu were in Jhanjhar to celebrate Dusshera and were scheduled to return back to Delhi. Ramesh Jain, the student Union President, informs the media that the trio were arrested by Jhanjhar Police and since then their whereabouts are unknown. Jhanjhar Police deny that the students were ever there, and are hostile, compelling the CBI to bring in more agents. While differences crop up between investigative tactics of the two agents, upper Caste Hindus, aided by the police, target the fearful Dalits and lower-caste Hindus, brutally torturing them and setting their houses on fire. With the entire local community refusing to come forward ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Good Attempt - But could have been better
29 October 2010 | by venkat2coolSee all my reviews

When you sit to watch a movie about 3 abducted students in rural Bihar, you tend to have some expectations. Expectations that have been met (rather exceeded) by some genius directors like Vishal Bharadwaj (Omkara), Prakash Jha (Gangaajal, Apharan), etc. I wont say that Priyadarshan did a shabby job, but somewhere you do not end up coming out of the theater satisfied that you watched a masterpiece.

Two things were very good in the movie - 1. The star cast... Ajay Devgan, Akshaye Khanna and Paresh Rawal in pivotal roles. 2. The setup/plot combination... the plot of age-old harassment in rural Bihar. So this gives the movie a very good platform to build upon.

The movie starts with three medical students going untraceable in a village and CBI is in to solve the case. It appoints its two officers - Ajay and Akshaye to investigate the case. As they start digging in to the details, they come to know about the other related (and deep-rooted) problems in the village. How they solve the problems and unearth the mystery is all what the movie is about.

Now for Priyadarshan trademark - what are the things flicked (oops... inspired) from other movies. (1) The movie is "inspired" from the 1987 Hollywood flick - Mississippi Burning. (2) The chase sequence when Ajay Devgan chases a crook called Nasbandi is flicked from Casino Royale.

On the whole, its a nice movie. But I personally did not like the climax much. I would not like to discuss about the climax but I felt if it had been somewhat different, it would have been better.
