Jail is another movie where Madhur Bhandarkar explores a different topic. We have always heard about the bottlenecks in the Indian legal system and Jail brings this to light.
Parag (Neil Nitin Mukesh) is falsely accused of possessing narcotics when he gives a lift to his flatmate and the duo are chased by the police. While his friend is shot and lands into coma and finally dies, Parag is put into jail. The story shows Parag trying to get a bail that is denied again and again.
Neil Nitin Mukesh does a great job of depicting a normal youth who is perplexed and confused by the Indian legal system. His portrayal of helplessness and confusion is quite moving. Mugdha Ghodse as his girlfriend is very convincing. The other characters in Jail (including Nawab, depicted by Manoj Bajpai) do their job pretty well.
Overall, I enjoyed watching Jail. It is a sad but true representation of the millions of people rotting in jails across the country, waiting to get justice. Madhur Bhandarkar's message hits hard.
