Any film that points out that modern India condones the sort of age-old bestial entitlement that allows people to rape and kill with impunity needs to be seen. But did it have to be so relentlessly violent?

April 8, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Aakrosh is essentially an all-guys act, with Ajay, Akshaye and Paresh providing enough punch to keep the drama racy, riveting and topical too.

Audience Reviews for Aakrosh

One of the best works by Priyadarshan in Hindi. It's a mirror to the dark aspects of Indian society, dealing with a lot of issues from honour killings and anti-dalit violence to domestic violence. The story is predictable, but the screenplay is compelling enough. I'm not sure how this film will appeal if you have already seen "Mississippi Burning", but I think Priyan did a good job in porting it to Indian scenario, as ever :)
