In a different way though.While "Gangajal" was graphic, "Apaharan" is slick. It moves at a fast pace throughout and rarely breaks its rhythm. All the actors deliver impressive performances. But it's Nana Patekar who steals the show in this one.... Full review

First things first, Apaharan is a good movie but it is not Gangajal. Prakash Jha's masterpiece was better than his latest movie. Gangajal was Gangajal.Apaharan is, what you may say, the story of an ordinary person from Bihar. This film... Full review

A very tautly made film that is gripping for the most part. Excellent script with some very clever tongue-in-cheek humor adds to lighten the mood up in what is an otherwise desolate journey into the extremely sad state of affairs... Full review

Nana Patekar, Yashpal Sharma and Mukesh Tiwari (as an honest cop trying hard not to buckle under corruption) are outstanding.....Fortunately for his film he doesn't flaunt his research.....He has his dependable cast to support his cause.....Bipasha Basu has little to do, and she does it well.....Though he sacrifices the introspective interludes, he succeeds in making this his most gripping tale to date..... ...

That indirectly indicates that the director has succeeded in his endeavour of producing a thought-provoking film, but in these times, when the general audience isn't too keen on watching hardcore realistic films, a film like Apaharan would find it tough to find universal acceptance. ...
