Storyline

Anaarkali (Swara Bhaskar) is an orchestra singer in South Bihar's Arrah. She is poor, sings double meaning lyrics and is treated as a sex worker. Dharmendra Chauhan (Sanjay Mishra), the Vice Chancellor of a prestigious university, is one of her many admirers. He molests Anaarkali in an inebriated state during a show and a war breaks out between the two. While Anaarkali wants justice for her ordeal, the system thinks it's the most natural accident that somebody like Anaarkali could meet. Written by subratjain1

Honest efforts pays off!
30 March 2017 | by anishagoelagSee all my reviews

After watching the movie, I recommended this to my friends but I feel that larger audience needs to be told about this movie and hence I am writing this review. I went to see this movie after work just for entertainment- I hadn't seen the trailer so I had no idea what was coming. An amazing story-line with power-packed performance- not just that, great music & very inspiring story-line. Watch it if you love to see good movies.
