The story of Utthaan deals with todays generation and the change in
their principles and values. It portrays how today’s youth compromises
on values to reach the top. It brings out the corruption in the various
systems in our society. It portrays media’s ability to make or break a
person according to its whims.
The movie’s title role has been played by Priyanshu Chatterjee and Neha
Dhupia. Priyanshu plays the role of Prashant Bharati and Neha that of
Kiran Talreja. Prashant is a media person who wants to do an expose on
politicians. A graduate from Lucknow University, he has been the
president of the student union twice. Prashant wants to make it big in
life and befriends Kiran, a model he met in the Lakme Fashion Show in
order to reach the top. Neha herself wants to make it big in life and
does not mind compromising with ethics and values for the same. The
movie subtly brings out how the youth can make a huge difference but is
not doing so in order to satisfy their selfish motives.
Kumar Sanu is world-famous for his singing skills. With Utthaan, he dons
the cap of a Producer. He has also scored the music for the movie.
Though the star cast is not very exciting, we will have to wait and
watch the audiences’ response.
