Anek Movie Download: Anubhav Sinha has given excellent films like Mulk, Thappad, Article 15 in the last few years and has raised issues through his films. In his latest film ‘Anek’, he has taken stock of the condition, mental state and political conditions of the people living in North East India. Everyone knows what other Indians think about the people of the seven states across Bengal. They are called ‘Chinese’ or ‘Chinki’. They are made fun of and considered non-Indian. They always have to prove that they are Indian. These are the things that have come up from time to time.
‘Anek’ goes a little deeper with these questions. A piece of 22 km connects these seven states with India. When the army comes and goes on this route, all the trucks have to stop for two-three days on the side and the farmers’ hard-earned crop of the year goes to waste. Its teas are in the people of North-East India. Everyone stares at them as if they are criminals. The hero of the film says that they celebrate us, we should also celebrate them everyday, not just on the day when a boxer from North-East has won gold.

The protagonist of the film also raises the question that no one wants peace to be maintained in this area. So many governments have come and gone, but could not do such a small task? Many people are serving their own interests only through unrest. He says that it is much easier to maintain war or violence than to maintain peace.
The film raises many valid questions on the helplessness, exploitation, atrocities and violence of the people of North East India, but the drama around which all these things have been said, that drama is not effective. He is not powerful enough to keep the audience seated or shake them.
The story follows undercover agent Joshua (Ayushmann Khurrana) who is tasked with keeping an eye on the separatists of North-East India as the government seeks a peace deal with the leader of North-East India, Tiger Sanga. Joshua tries to control the violent activities of the separatists so that there is no major incident before the peace deal.
Joshua is fond of boxer Aido (Andrea Cevichusa) who is working hard to play for the Indian team, but is being discriminated against for being a North East Indian. Her father is running an activity against the Wangnao government and father and daughter are fighting on their own level.
When Joshua is close to the local people and he smells politics in peace talks, he uses his heart rather than his brain. The film here reminds us of Rajesh Khanna’s character in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s ‘Namak Haram’ and Abhay Deol’s character in Prakash Jha’s ‘Chakravyuh’.
Joshua is using it by pretending to be in love with Aido. Through this alleged love, the filmmaker has depicted the alleged love of other Indians for the North East Indians.
Anubhav Sinha has written the story and the screenplay is co-written by Seema Agarwal and Yash Keswani. The screenplay is written in such a way that the audience cannot connect with the film. The initial 45 minutes are very confusing and it becomes difficult to understand the purpose of the main characters of the film and this is where you lose interest in the film.
Why can’t the local people catch Joshua’s antics? Why do you keep Joshua open when senior officers sense his intentions? Questions like these bother me. The spooky track of the villain named ‘Johnson’ also does not come out well in the film. The film also seems one-sided at times.
The pain of the people of North East India has been expressed only through words. His grievance or his displeasure with the Indian government doesn’t come out strong in the film. Only raising questions does not work, but the drama has to be strengthened and this is where ‘Anek’ lags behind.
As a director, Anubhav Sinha had to work harder from his writing team. His presentation as a director adds to the confusion. Who wants what does not come out completely. The last 45 minutes of the film are interesting when a little thrill is created, but this thrill is missing in the rest of the film while it is the story of an undercover agent.
The dialogues of the film are excellent. The ‘business’ of peace and unrest has been explained in detail through dialogues. The story of Gautam Buddha is also strong. The film also has some songs which suit the mood. Cinematography is great.
Ayushmann Khurrana is a good actor but doesn’t impress much in this film. Manoj Pahwa and Kumud Mishra give proof of their being seasoned actors. Andrea Cevichusa’s face is expressive. The work of the artists of North East India is also fine.
Many questions raise many, but the background which has been prepared for asking questions is not strong. (Anek Movie Download in Filmyzilla)
