Storyline

Anaarkali (Swara Bhaskar) is an orchestra singer in South Bihar's Arrah. She is poor, sings double meaning lyrics and is treated as a sex worker. Dharmendra Chauhan (Sanjay Mishra), the Vice Chancellor of a prestigious university, is one of her many admirers. He molests Anaarkali in an inebriated state during a show and a war breaks out between the two. While Anaarkali wants justice for her ordeal, the system thinks it's the most natural accident that somebody like Anaarkali could meet. Written by subratjain1

A small budget entertainer but high on content
29 March 2017 | by riturajsharma-32489See all my reviews

A movie cannot work on only great music, or great actors or best scenic locations – It is the story that determines the success of any movie and in case of AoA, story is what makes it watchable. Based in Aarah, the movie shows the struggles that a dancer undergoes and how she fights back. Watch this inspiring movie of a dancer who fails to surrender to the society trends and demands the respect that she deserves.
