    Aakrosh rating: 8 out of 10(Moh.Asif Rajput wrote on 10 Nov 2010)

    Aakrosh addresses the horrific spate of honour killings that captured the national media's attention recently.

    Priyadarshan turned his gaze away from the flippant and tackled a serious issue in 'Aakrosh', his latest film. The film takes a look at the deep rooted issue of honour killings, and in the bargain, exposes an India, which most of living in the cities, are unaware of. This is an India which is riddled by caste wars, corruption and exploitation of women and other weaker sects.
    The film begins with the disappearance of three college students from a remote village in the heartland of India. As they are medical students from Delhi, their disappearance sparks off protests, leading the government to depute a special team consisting of a CBI officer and an army major to investigate the case. What starts out as an ordinary investigation turns out to be linked to a love affair between members of two different castes, which sets of a kind of caste war and a spate of killings.

    The two officers who land in the village to conduct the investigation, find themselves stonewalled by the silence which greets their questions. Anyone who dares to speak out against the perpetrators finds themselves on the other side of death, thus making things very difficult for CBI officer Sidhant Chaturvedi (Akshaye Khanna) and Pratap Singh (Ajay Devgn) to get to the bottom of the affair. Matters are further complicated when Pratap finds out that the wife of the corrupt and brutal local police inspector, Ajatshatru Singh (Paresh Rawal), is none other than his former sweetheart, Geeta (Bipasha Basu).

    As Pratap and Sidhant get deeper and deeper into the case, they realise that there is a massive cover up operation which is in place, and all the upper cast powerful men of the village are involved in the issue, including the cops, the local politician and the goons. The director seems to have done his homework well as he is manages to bring out the nexus between the rich and the powerful in the village and their own private army called the Shool Sena, fashioned on the lines of the Ranvir Sena in Bihar, which only has upper caste members.

    Both Devgn and Akshaye turn in superlative performances as the investigating officers. It is good to see Akshay in a decent role after such a long while. He prefers to underplay it as usual and is a perfect foil to Devgn. With so many releases this year, 2010 seems to be Devgn's year. His stylised performance in this film is a treat to watch and he delivers yet another power paced performance.

    If u are fan of AJAY DEVGAN then U must watch this.
