Director Manish Jha deals with a veteran temple and a delinquent lover Anwar (SiddharthKoirala).The movie also shows the connections of the partisan and everyone around him with love as the keynote.

The story, in Uttar Pradesh, exclaims how Muslims still acknowledge breaching our country and the orthodox mentality of the society that does not want to develop. 
Politicians who are disdained by women and balloters are portrayed in Jha's story, creating a momentum and heat that is both enthralling and inciting. 
 Politics enclose the whole grubby outline as an appendage of the love story about the emotional Anwar, whose love for Mehroo (NauheedCyrusi) is impeded by a smart Hindu boy(HitenTejwani).
The entanglement grows up to be a daunting quandary resulting to three demises back to back.

What's there?

1. The cinematography of the movie is appreciable.
2. Except for the item number, all the other songs are a plus point for the movie.

What's not there?

1. The story has many loose ends.
2. There are too many subplots, which are not relevant to the main plot


Overall, Anwar is a good-to-watch movie, but too many subplots spoil the show.
