CAST & CREW
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.
Anwar (SiddharthKoirala) from Lucknow falls in love with his neighbor Mehroo (NauheedCyrusi) who is dying to go to the US.Anwar's best friend Pasha (Vijay Raaz) assists him to impress his love. Spellbound Anwar, who is totally in love with Mehroo, can not risk to lose her. But when his Hindu friend Udit (HitenTejwani) snags his love from him, all hell splits loose.Instigated by Anwar, Mehroo's brother massacres the Hindu lover as the couple tries to run off. Mehroo consequently leads to self-destruction and Anwar finds himself guilty for her death. So he starts moving towards an unknown destination. Nonetheless, life has more for him as he gets characterized as a terrorist who has persecuted a temple. A politician uses this situation as a tool to regain his seat. The superintendent of police S P Tiwari ( Yashpal Sharma), whose wife is suffering from cancer and is on the last stage, wants to settle the altercation soon. A TV Journalist Anita ( Manisha Koirala) has just faced a divorce with her husband.How Manish Jha comes out of these situations is what this movie is all about.
Siddharth Koirala shows full understanding towards his role and handles it quite impressively. Nauheed Cyrusi is too relishable. HitenTejwani, Pankaj Jha, and Sudhir Pandey have performed well. Rampal Yadav and Manisha Koirala are wasted.
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.
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.
