Product Description

Delhi University. A romance. An accidental pregnancy. And the act of announcing this to his conservative parents is just the beginning of the explosion of emotions and events that Antardwand unfolds.

The boy- Raghuveer who has just appeared for his Civil Services exams is admonished by his father against marrying his pregnant girlfriend in Delhi. Distraught and defenseless Raghu terminates his visit home in the interiors of Bihar and leaves for Delhi. But before he could get out of the village he gets anducted by another headstrong and ambitious father of a girl wanting to have a potential IAS officer as his son-in-law. The boy is forcibly married off at gun point much against his and the girl's own wishes. Once married, they are locked up in a room for days end till they consummate their marriage and accept each other completely....
but do they accept each other in the face of inevitability?

Review

Based on a true story, ANTARDWAND captivates you with its simple yet shocking tale. Director Sushil Rajpal narrates a poignant story with precision. He has thrown light on a rampant issue of groom abduction which not many might be aware of. The twists throughout the film keep you hooked and enthralled. Sushil keeps an open ending which is real at the same time disturbing.

It's full of some wonderful scenes. Janki, in a bid to lure Raghuveer compares her name to Raghuveer's girlfriend Sia, saying that they mean the same. Watching Raghuveer getting married while he's asleep is hilarious as well as flummoxing.

After GULAAL, Raj Sigh Chaudhary gives another strong performance. Swati Sen is impressive. Akhilendra Mishra gets into his character perfectly. Vinay Pathak's performance is striking.

ANTARDWAND is a must watch for its heart rending story and strong performances. --platform47.com

The drama comes live with competent performances from the entire cast. Raj Singh Chaudhary as the powerless and victimized groom is believable. Swati Sen is exceptionally good in her emotional act. Akhilendra Mishra has an authoritative and imposing presence. His character gives him enough scope to get dramatic and thankfully he doesn't ham like his usual tendency. Vinay Pathak is efficient in his small part. Jaya Bhattacharya and Sumukhi Pendse lend good support.

Antardwand completely redefines the term 'wedlock' showing a face of the supposed democratic country where even today guns decide grooms. --platform47.com

Antardwand is based on a true incidents and about a practice that is common in the Bihar and in certain parts of North India : groom kidnapping. In Indian Cinema we have mainly seen films that have about focussed on oppression of the female brides because of dowry related issues but this is an novel plot about Pakrauah Shaadi i.e. groom kidnapping that is supposedly rampant even to this day not only in Bihar but many parts of northern India.
This is a very interesting film that talks about reality through some rivetting direction and amazing performances by the cast.
Raghubir ( Raj Singh Chaudhary) is an intelligent young man who is destined for the Indian Administrative services and has his future planned out by his father Vinay Pathak,so much that his parents have also selected the woman that they want him to marry. However the father does not know that the son is in love with another woman and has a baby on the way as well. When the dad refuses to accept this situation, the son walks out on them- but is kidnapped by another father trying to find a suitable groom for his young daughter. The kidnappers attempt at initial coercion fail and they finally resort to brutality and intoxicants to get the groom to do the needful
This is an introduction to another world - the rural India, where men dominate and women play by the rules. After Raghubir is kidnapped he is forced to marry Akhilendra Mishra's daughter but only after drugging him and filling him up with alcohol.
The debutant director Sushil Rajpal takes this story and makes it very watchable- what also works is the language and the rural setting, that is beautiful but also very bleak. This is an region of India where lawlessness is widespread and kidnappings is serious business.

A powerful portrayal of a sad social reality in Bihar and Eastern Uttar Pradesh in India. The movie shows abduction of a highly educated young man who is forced in marriage while tangled in his own relationships with his city girl friend and traditional father. The actors live their roles, movie is paced in a gentle documentary-drama style and the plot is a haunting portral of tragedy, inner conflict and womens' plight. Music, cinematography, ambience are just superb. A must see.
