Movie Review:- Story of two friends, separated by caste, creed and ideology, who are torn apart by their irreconcilable socio-political differences, is given a seriously spunky spin by Prakash Jha in Chakravyuh. A socio-political thriller set in the country’s red corridor where Maoist insurgents oppose industrialisation because it leads to the displacement of the tribal population, Chakravyuhhas its heart in the right place.
Direction, Performance and Music:- Far from being perfect, Prakash Jha's Chakravyuh looks like an amateurish attempt. The film is based on the problem of the Naxalite movement in the country. rjun Rampal tries to act but is too well-groomed to play a hardcore cop. Manoj Bajpayee as Rajan is perfect and convincing in the role. However, the surprise package is newcomer Anjali Patil, who gives best performance in a negative role as a top naxalite Juhi.
Overall:- Chakravyuhtries to grapple with too many nexuses in the movie, but gets bogged down with the script and mediocre performances.
