Prakash Jha has, most of the times, attempted realistic, hard-hitting films. The films seem straight out of life, as if you're watching a real-life incident unfold right in front of your eyes.

Its a Jungle out there. And no one other than Prakash Jha knows how to present the Jungle, its inhabitants and the events better on screen. After 'Gangajal', Prakash Jha comes up with yet another gripping tale of an organized crime in the cow belt, this time picking up the issue of 'Apaharan' i.e. kidnapping. No, he doesn't try to solve the issue but presents to audience the tale of what happens behind the scene of this organized crime. While both the print and satellite media merely flashes the headlines, the director has gone a few steps ahead to show the 'why' and the 'how' of it!
