After the passing of his parents, Karan resides with his Mumbai-based Chacha, who lives a middle-classed existence with his wife and 2 children. An Engineering student, Karan enrolls himself in Satara's Jaigarh University and gets a room in a hostel. Upon his arrival itself he is subjected to extortion by a male named Akshay and dozens of senior-year males. When he resists, he is beaten and taken before their ring-leader, Feroz, who has deliberately been unsuccessful in his exams so that he can continue to live a lush life, is politically well-connected, and is expected to stand for local elections, and beaten even more in the presence of the hostel Warden, Sharad Saxena. He is unable to focus on his studies due to frequent beatings and public humiliations. He finds romance in the company of gorgeous Payal & moral support from fellow-victims, Vishnu Pandey, Bobby, and Nilesh. After a physical confrontation with Akshay, Feroz decides to leave Karan alone but continues ragging others ... Written by rAjOo (

Although critics stated Mukesh Tiwari was too old to play a college student he was deliberately cast, to show how politicians in India tried to gain a foothold in politics by becoming student leaders. See more »

User Reviews

Plain Crap
30 December 2016 | by ravisinger86See all my reviews

Hostel Directed By Manish Gupta is Crime Horror Drama. Direction is Good But Script is Weak. Screenplay is Dull & Boring. Dialogues Are Weak. Cast is Pathetic.

Karan(Vatsal Seth) Moves Jaigarh For Further Studies. He Gets A Room In Hostel. As The Day Pass He is Been Tortured, Molested And Humiliated By Seniors. He Befriends Who Have Been Gone Through Such Phrase. The Seniors Group is Led By Feroz(Mukesh Tiwari). Meanwhile Karan Meets Payal(Tulip Joshi). They Like Each Other. Feroz is Politically Strong, He Does Illegal Activities in Hostel. Karan Faces Them & Finally Retaliates.

A Year Later, A New Guy Pawan Mehta Enters The Same Hostel. He Goes Through Same Humiliation Like Others Have Gone Through. In Order To Bring Peace Karan Takes An Extreme Step.

Acting By Most Of The Actors is Disappointing. Vatsal Seth & Tulip Joshi Both Are Hopeless. Mukesh Tiwari Does Well in Few Scenes.

Music & Lyrics Are Good But Lack Of Better Singers Makes The Songs Sound Average. Background Music is Not There. "No Sound" Effect Not Used Properly. Avoid The Movie And Save Time.
