Paharganj is a drama thriller movie, which can be understood watching the trailer itself. A Spanish girl is seen talking to her German boyfriend holidaying in Paharganj (New Delhi) through social media from Spain. Everything looks good, and are about to get married, but suddenly her boyfriend Robert disappears, and the girl lands in the city to find him. And then the engagement with the police officials, locals, thugs and all come in.
But that is just 1 part of the story because the place Paharganj itself resonates to a mystery around it. Though a market area, but a lot of things happens and goes around especially with the foreign tourists.
Yesterday I watched the Premier; I found the script very interesting. Three stories are running parallel. At first, I was not able to connect the dots, but just around the Interval I started figuring out something, but again I was proved wrong after the interval, which became a riddle and made the movie more interesting. The movie showcases the world of drug cartels and the overall situation of the area of Paharganj.
The movie might be a little slow, but it is a suspense thriller, and the best part is the story which unfolds in the end. Something which you would never expect, even till 10 minutes before the movie ends.
All in all, I love this film, it explores everything from police, parlours, politics, local life and the world of drug mafia and murders.
I rate Paharganj movie 3.5/5
