An Engineering student is molested, beaten and humiliated when he goes to reside in a hostel.
After the passing of his parents, Karan resides with his Mumbai-based Chacha, who lives a middle-classed existence with his wife and 2 children. An Engineering student, Karan enrolls himself in Satara's Jaigarh University and gets a room in a hostel. Upon his arrival itself he is subjected to extortion by a male named Akshay and dozens of senior-year males. When he resists, he is beaten and taken before their ring-leader, Feroz, who has deliberately been unsuccessful in his exams so that he can continue to live a lush life, is politically well-connected, and is expected to stand for local elections, and beaten even more in the presence of the hostel Warden, Sharad Saxena. He is unable to focus on his studies due to frequent beatings and public humiliations. He finds romance in the company of gorgeous Payal & moral support from fellow-victims, Vishnu Pandey, Bobby, and Nilesh. After a physical confrontation with Akshay, Feroz decides to leave Karan alone but continues ragging others with impunity. One year later, new-comers, including impoverished Pawan Mehta, are 'welcomed' by Feroz. Karan finds out about Pawan's plight and decides to intervene - and it is this intervention that will pit him not only against an enraged Feroz but his very own friends - who now believe that 'ragging' results in attaining 'manhood'.
Hostel is the story of Karan who starts his 4 year engineering degree moving into a hostel. Within hours of arriving at the hostel he finds out that life at college is not going to be what he imagined as there are a group of guys who extort money from younger students, bully and harass them at all opportunities, even to the extent of stripping them naked, parading them in front of other students (male and female) on college grounds and even worse, in some cases molesting and raping them. Karan tries to stand up for himself but this makes things worse and eventually he realises he has no choice but to keep quiet. When his best friends from the first year start getting involved in the bullying of younger students in the seconds year, does Karan get involved or just concentrate on his studies? Can anyone get through college without some form of abuse? This is a real eye-opener of a film if you've never lived on college accommodation. It's shocking and distasteful but sadly based on reality which is the saddest thing. This is not your typical feel good Bollywood film and many will find it very disturbing.
Vatsal Sheth as Karan is superb in the role, he looks the part, innocent and "pretty" - the perfect target for disgusting bullies. Tulip Joshi as Payal, Karan's love interest, doesn't have a lot of screen time but she performs well and this is not a love story - although their scenes provide some life relief from all the violence and humiliation endured by young students.
Mukesh Tiwari is suitably sinister as Feroz bhai, the main gang leader, who it seems will stop at nothing to show he's top man.
The side actors were nothing of note but the story overall was shocking and this viewer feels the film should be compulsory viewing to all deans and principals of further education institutions in India to make sure they are aware of what's going on under their noses! Watch this if you have the stomach for it. I didn't enjoy it but I'm glad I watched it. There hasn't been a student either in India or worldwide, that hasn't been bullied at some stage in his life.
The effect this has on the victim has far reaching and unimaginable consequences. The first is isolation and the development inferiority complex. If not dealt with by a psychiatrist, can lead to the individual becoming a social outcast, and his or her hatred of society as a whole. His identity is also becoming slowly annihilated.
This individual will tend to avoid social gatherings and keep a low profile. He or she is easily angered and provoked by ridicule.
Another effect is of revenge. When this occurs, he or she will take the law into his own hands. When this happens, I feel it is too late to save him or her.
Also ragging in college totally disrupts the education of the victim. He cannot concentrate on his studies due to fear of his assailants and also of thoughts of revenge.
The teachings of Jesus Christ doesn't come to play in the modern world. If you offer your enemy your cheek to be slapped, he will demolish your jaw with a "sledgehammer". And anyways its a DOG-EAT-DOG world.
Who is to blame. First and foremost it is the parent or guardian of the victim. The administrative board of college is second. And third it is the government for not offering us any protection as a citizen.
I sometimes wonder, why do governments and countries exist at all when billions of homeless and destitute and exploited people exist. This surely is the biggest enigma.
Hostel is a film directed by writer-director Manish Gupta who has scripted Sarkar (2005) and has directed The Stoneman Murders (2009).
The film starring Vatsal Sheth, Tulip Joshi and Mukesh Tiwari was released worldwide on January 21, 2011
Brief Plot: One night at the Boys' Hostel at Jaigarh University, Satara District, a senior student Feroz (Mukesh Tiwari) and his goons harass freshman geek Vishnu "Battery" Pandey (Subeer Goswamin), stripping him down, molesting him and tying a collar around his neck and forcing him to act like a dog. His cries for help falls on deaf ears as the watchman continues to go about on his rounds....
Verdict: This is among the best films of 2011, and a must watch. I should expect this to be seen by all the deans of colleges worldwide. 646f9e108c
