Alag is a 2006 Indian Hindi science fiction action film helmed by Ashu Trikha and produced by Subi Samuel, featuring Akshay Kapoor and Dia Mirza. The protagonist is a guy with incredible magical abilities and no hairs on his body. Despite the movie’s failure there at box office, Akshay Kapoor’s portrayal received positive reviews.
Talking about the plot of the movie, Widower Hemant Rastogi lives in beautiful Mahabaleshwar, presumably alone, according to the narrative of the film. He gets a heart attack and dies one night. When the police investigate Hemant’s home, they discover Tejas, Hemant’s only son, in the basement.
Purva Rana, the head of the P.R. Institute (a rehabilitation centre for juvenile offenders), is asked by the authorities to watch after Tejas, that has only known other people via his father as well as the books he has given for him. Tejas begins to exhibit Telekenesis and therefore is ostracised by another guy at the institute, culminating in a security guard’s near-fatal accident and the death of a fellow student. When Tejas is able to revive Purva’s wife, Gayatri Rana, from the coma-like state, he regains him inside the eyes of Purva’s rich father, Pushkar.
Purva discovers Tejas has already been kidnapped and is mortally wounded in a rescue effort by Dr. Dyer. Tejas’ rage drives him to unleash his abilities, breaking the glass prison, murdering Dr. Dyer, and electrocuting Purva. Tejas revives her with a jolt of electricity from his palms. Purva and Tejas drive away into the sunset at the end of the film.
Alag is an intriguing film that piques our interest as we learn more about the protagonist’s character. As the film progresses, the limits of a large budget and a lack of attention to detail become apparent, and the result is an ambitious but imperfect work. The entire result, though, is oddly fascinating, making it a must-see for comic-book enthusiasts and a highly enjoyable effort for everyone else. The movie played, which is saying a lot considering how difficult it is to write a superhero picture.
