Choosing an interesting story is difficult. But doing justice to the story is nothing short of an achievement. Awarapan, directed by Mohit Suri, gets it right on both the levels -- on paper first, on celluloid later.

For Hindi moviegoers, the story may remind you of Rakesh Roshan's Koyla [Shahrukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit, Amrish Puri], but in actuality, Awarapan borrows from director Kim Ji-woon's Korean film A Bittersweet Life [2005; Korean title: Dalkomhan Insaeng; starring Lee Byung-Hun, Kim Young-Cheol, Shin Mina]. Nothing wrong with being inspired, since every director has his way of interpreting a story. Also, Mohit adapts the content to suit Indian sensibilities.
