Aakrosh Review

Shameful as it may sound, honour killings still exist in many parts of the country. The misconception is honour killings are all about the murder of a female family member by one or more family members, since the perpetrators / wrongdoers believe that the victim has brought dishonour / disrepute upon the family by having a relationship with a man of different religion or social status or marrying against the parents' wishes or having premarital sex.

The fact is men are also victims of this practice, especially when it affects the reputation of a particular caste and community. Many grooms have been killed by the father or brother of the bride and this is exactly what Aakrosh attempts to highlight.

Made with right intentions, Aakrosh enlightens you on the caste system which continues to be at its rigid best, with people from the rural areas refusing to change their attitude towards marriage. Having said that, I'd like to add that Aakrosh is strikingly similar to the Hollywood film Mississippi Burning, which, reportedly, was loosely based on the FBI investigation into the real-life murders of three civil rights workers in Mississippi in 1964.
