 Storyline

Naxalism has been one of the biggest problems in independent India.
The problem created due to inequality and injustice meted out to hapless citizens, who cannot fight for their rights in the current socio-political system.
The so called “Red-Belt” stretches all the way from Bihar to Kerala.
Like many of Prakash Jha’s movies, this film too focuses on a contemporary problem being faced by the country – which is an important problem.
But one which many of us tend to ignore, because it does not impact our daily life.

Chakravyuh is the story of six extraordinary characters, each in passionate pursuit of his/her dream.

 1.       Adil Khan (Arjun Rampal): The cop, strong-willed, courageous, and one of the most dependable officers in the police force. He has a simple principle. The rule of law has to reign supreme and anyone who breaks it is his enemy.

2.       Kabir (Abhay Deol): The rebel, born off the streets, a man with no history, impulsive, totally free-spirited, the quintessential rolling stone. He has only one anchor in life his friendship with Adil to whom he owes everything, for whom he will do anything.

3.       Rhea Menon (Esha Gupta): The Strategist, a brilliant intelligence officer and an interrogation expert. She is Adil Khan`s wife and co-soldier, she loves to fights shoulder to shoulder with him.

4.       Rajan (Manoj Bajpayee): The Revolutionary, the most feared man in the region, this mysterious leader will not stop until he has fulfilled his promise of turning helplessness into empowerment, replacing suffering with justice, destroying the oppressor. He is very much loved by his people and followers

5.       Juhi (Anjali Patil): The Warrior, born in poverty and misery, raised in oppression and cruelty. This makes her to pick up the gun! Her purpose is to fight for freedom.

6.       Govind Suryavanshi (Om Puri): The Messiah, born in the lap of luxury and well educated in UK, he was destined to become a top corporate executive. But in a drastic twist, he choses the path less taken and becomes a mentor to the revolutionary movement.

These six are drawn into an internal conflict in in India.  A conflict whose end can`t be seen. A war that is being waged by our own - the youth of the country are rebelling against injustice, exploitation and inequality.

What happens to each of them? Do they realize their dreams? Are the dreams worth pursuing?
