Ankush is a 1986 Bollywood movie staring Nana Patekar. It is a story of four young men, who feel disconnected with society and are wasting their life away when a new neighbour changes their perspective. The protagonists chage their attitude and try and blend in with the normal, honest and hard-working society of 1980s India when they are met with a tragedy. The movie shows how they take revenge for what they think, was a valid punishment for the crime. It also shows their distrust in the law of the land.

Chandras debut film propagates the cause of the fanatic Hindu party, the Shiv Sena, a link emphasised by the Hindi film debut of Nana Patekar. A gang of four educated but unemployed men are a law unto themselves. Reformed by a female guardian angel (Singh), the four briefly attempt an entrepreneurial life until the woman is raped by the very gang leader (and his masters) against whom the youths fighting. Revenge is swift, as is their repentance, creating a cyclical story of violence and regret. The film unshamedly rehearses Bombays Shiva Sena ideologies: unemployment is the devils workshop, industry is controlled by rootless outsiders (North Indians, mainly who prosecute and exploit the natives. The relentless violence culminates in the four thugs, presented as heroes, being reminiscent of Indias nationalist freedom fighters. [Source: Encl] Check out this page for more updates on Ankush.
