Movie Info

There is a war raging in India. A war whose end can't be seen. A war that isn't being waged by outsiders. The youth of the country are rebelling against injustice, against tyranny, against exploitation. Inequality will not be tolerated forever. There is anger, and there is deep social unrest. This is the story of six extraordinary characters, each with an all-consuming dream... a promise they will uphold above everything else. Six indomitable characters, six parallel lives... bound together by one story. But, when the story takes its stunning twist, it sends them hurtling towards one another - for inevitable collision and, unleashes a war in which no one can remain neutral. A war that tests their loyalty, their trust, their love and their friendship.

  • It's hard to take the singing and dancing rebels seriously.

  • Substituting the usual Bollywood song-and-dance with pumped-up bullet ballet, this lengthy but propulsive pic puts a contempo political spin on a classic police-meller formula.

  • [Chakravyuh] works intermittently in the first half, and not too well in the stretched second.

  • A muscular tone and non-stop action draw us into this Bollywood thriller, which then surprises us as it explores some complex themes about ethics and loyalty.

    Oct 26, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Not without a few perverse, unintentional charms, but only recommendable to the most morbidly curious of viewers.

Audience Reviews for Chakravyuh

Yet another Prakash Jha film trying to throw some light on one of the major national concerns. But the story used for the cause is way too clichéd and worn out. It'd have worked out big time all the same had the casting included some big names/stars. While it succeeded to receive positive reviews from most critics, it didn't fare so well at B.O. (compared to Aarakshan, Raajneeti, Gangajal, etc.). The performances are alright, but the dialogues lack punch. Besides, Abhay's voice sounds funny even during serious scenes. All said and done, the movie is tolerable enough (extremely lame ending being overlooked for the way the movie proceeded, I wasn't expecting wonders).
