Chakravyuh Movie Review
Release Date:October 24, 2012
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 enemy is our own! 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. Our own countrymen are locked in the bloodiest armed mutiny this country has ever seen.
Chakravyuh is the story of six extraordinary characters, each with an all-consuming dream.. A promise.. A promise they will uphold above everything else.

A little more in-depth portrayal could've worked better for the filmRead more
Staying true to the subject, Jha gives us an insight into uncomfortable truths happening in our backyardRead more
An engaging drama. It chronicles a burning issue, but is entertaining concurrently, something that Prakash Jha balances beautifully in film after filmRead more
