Prakash Jha knows how to convey social and political issues in a way that mainstream cinema lovers will like and Chakravyuh is not an exception. Like most of the Jha’s movie that revolves around some sociopolitical issues or are either true stories.
Chakravyuh is all about naxalites. Staying true and loyal to the difficult subject Jha is able to deliver a complete movie with a message loud and clear. Whats go in the favor of the movie is the story of the two friends set up in between the lives of naxalites plus the power performances by cast. Prakash Jha is known for extracting the best from his actors and this time he has done the same. Arjun Rampal and Esha Gupta are good but the real show stealers are the Abhay Deol, Manoj Bajpai and new comer Anjali Patil.
Chakravyuh takes you to a hard-hitting note from the very outset, its a compelling drama and has some very superb violent and streaky moments. Jha has done a great job by portraying such an intense and burning issue in a way close to our mainstream cinema.
It’s worth a watch if you are a clever Bollywood lover a like sociopolitical drama.
