When ever movie is based on social issues , its obvious Movie will reflect certain positive and negative feedback as well. But if the Movie is on 377 Act ,can turn an Eye opener for many of us who think that these people are not part of society. Earlier Films like Dunno Y Naa jaane Kyonfeatauring Kapil Sharma & Yuvraaj Parashar , which first movie to based on 377 Act did not fare well, because that time people were not ready to accept the sensitvity And lets see how Hansal Mehta manages with Aligarh to convey his Audience.
Film Aligarh portrays on the life of 64 year old Marathi Professor SIRAS (Manoj Bajpyee) who was about to retire from Aligarh University in just three months, and was harassed by Politics caused by Aligarh University by shooting video of him sleeping with Richkshaw Driver Irfan saying that He is Gay.
On this An Intern Reporter from Times Today Deepu Sebastian (Rajkumar Rao) from Dilli looked at other side of story and went into depth of it. At that time He planned his journey from DILLI to Aligarh to go into depth of it for writing. Also felt sorry on cheapness of University and raised topic that "What right has someone to enter in their private lives"
But till the Time Section 377 came under power and supported the cause of Professor Siras, and Case went till court where we saw the real phase of University. Brilliant Performances by Lawyer Anand Grover (Ashish Vidyarthi) who played Lawyer of 377 section.
Also , Manoj Bajpayee is huge Fan of Lata Mangeshkar in movie and often listens to old songs on his Tap-recorder. Some Moments in the film, which will really touch your inner soul and will force you to think about particular character
Characters Graph : One can't just describe Acting skills of Versatile Actors Manoj Bajpai, Ashish Vidyarthi , They are just beyond it. RajKumar Rao was good enough in his convincing power as a journalist.
Direction : Hansal Mehta delivers a well researched story that stars on 8th feb 2010, with certain parts in between for Court's date and Ends on 15th April 2010 with a valuable message.
Screenplay By Apurva Asrani was totally taken a back, especially old songs by Lata Mangeshkar which were well pictured to show Fan Moment of Manoj Bajpayee. Also definition of LOVE was well described in proverb "Its a Beautiful World"
Review : Aligarh can be defined as a Masterpiece which is Beyond 377, Apart its conveys so many messages. What right someone has to peep in someone's window, Also Disrespect to Senior Citizens which is totally unethical.
Aligarh is a Must watch film for Everyone to change everyone's perspective of peeping into someone's Privacy. My ratings -3.5 - 4 Stars to Film
Rating : 4 Stars
