Jog your memory and recall films highlighting the nuisance called dowry. Images of a number of movies would instantly conjure up in front of your eyes. Now think of groom kidnapping. Have you heard of it or 'Pakrauah Shaadi' (that's how it is referred to in North India)? I had vaguely heard of it once, but was clueless about the reasons that prompt people to kidnap eligible bachelors. Antardwand not only spells out the reasons, but also tackles the issue with rare understanding.
Cinema lovers are thirsting for novel and untold stories and Antardwand is an applaud-worthy film that fills the void. Real, disturbing and shocking, Antardwand, reportedly based on a true story, is a power-packed film. If you crave for new stories and often complain that Hindi films have started stagnating, Antardwand should be your pick this weekend.
Final word? The year 2010 has seen a number of 'small' or low cost films having a lot to offer in the dark confines of an auditorium. Now add Antardwand to that list!
