When AAKROSH would be releasing on October 15, subject to the condition that the standoff with the censor board about 30 cuts is resolved it would mark a decade of association with films for Bipasha Basu. And what a contrast it would be, Bipasha is appearing in a totally deglamorised role, contrary to the svelte look that she is sporting these days to promote her health video.

There are a distinct underpinnings and parallels with GUMRAH where the lovers who went around together are juxtaposition against each other by quirk fate. For Bipasha the wheel has indeed turned full circle as in her debut film AJNABEE she played the role of a married woman and now in AAKROSH again she is playing the role of a married women.

A decade is a long time for a female actor in Hindi cinema to graduate from being a glamorous star to emerge as an actor of substance and Bipasha is also following on the same trajectory. She has been fortunate enough to get a director like Priyadarshan to help her in this image makeover as though Priyadarshan is known for his mad comic capers, he is also the director who has given such sensitive hits like GARDISH and VIRAASAT which gave a much needed shot in the arm for acting careers of Jackie Shroff, Tabu and Anil Kapoor in that order.


Interestingly enough while AAKROSH has background of Bihar the film has extensively been shot in Karaikudi. Another underlining facet of AAKROSH is with relation to Ajay Devgn. From the time when he started associating with films with background of Bihar's political flavor, i.e. LAJJA, GANGAJAL, APHARAN, OMKARA and RAAJNEETI, he has been single handedly able to bring about the trials and tribulations of a person who is harassed by the system and one only hopes that AAKROSH would provide him an opportunity to deliver another super hit performance.

As the theme of AAKROSH is honour killing it provides ample opportunity for Ajay Devgn to display his histrionics and with Akshaye Khanna one of the most underrated actors of Hindi cinema to complement him, one only hopes that AAKROSH would give a telling blow to honour killings about which no politician is inclined to speak fearing the wrath of the vote bank. Cinema however does not bother about vote banks and AAKROSH would prove that with conviction.
