Shameful as it may sound, honour killings still exist in many parts of the country.

The film doesn’t do the issue of honour killing any service.
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
The film’s tone is loud and inconsistent. Priyadarshan wants to marry hard-hitting drama with thrills so one minute, we’re marveling at the nicely crafted chase sequences, including one on bicycles, and the next we move into realistic mode with hangings a

'Aakrosh' turns out to be an out and out dramatic affair that almost unfolds like a mystery being sold. There are thrills galore and the narrative is also sprinkled with enough action packed moments to keep the masses happy. Really, for a film that had an 'issue' at the core of it, this has to be the one of the most 'masala' filled entertainers in the offing. And this is where 'Aakrosh' actually scores.

Aakrosh is a action-suspense flick. The problem however is the editing. The film seems too long after the suspense is revealed. The film resembles a little bit to Hollywood films. It has some minor shades of Kindergarten Cop. However, this film is still w

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.Mad
Hard hitting and thought provoking, only for those who want thinking cinema

A film based on honour killings was an interesting concept. Add to that, the exciting promos and a talented cast, Aakrosh came with certain expectations
