Chakravyuh - A bitter truth about Indian politics
24 October 2012 | by prakhar-cenaSee all my reviews

It's a must watch movie. The movie goes off at a good pace. Right from start till end, one will not get bored anywhere. The role of police, along with the deadly interference from the sick politicians is well depicted. The dialogs delivery and acting by Arjun Rampal and Abhey Deol has been awesome. Though the role of Manoj Bajpai is not too great. The songs are too good and in fact one of them shows the true Indian political play.

The best part of the movie is its story which shows both the sides – pros and cons of Naxalites and Political leaders. The only part which I felt to be useless is the "ITEM SONG" by Sameera Reddy.

In all, an awesome movie and people should watch it.
