Aks (The Reflection) is a 2001 Indian Hindi supernatural thriller film directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. Although the film won critical acclaim, it failed to perform at the box office. Amitabh Bachchan received his first Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor for his performance.
Aks is a supernatural thriller centering on two characters — Manu Verma, the cop, and Raghavan, the shadowy killer.
Raghavan is caught and, as he is about to be executed by hanging, his spirit goes into Manu Verma's body and starts to manipulate the cop into performing acts that Raghavan wanted to perform. But he couldn't save himself. He goes to another town but is not able to find peace.
Eventually, Raghavan's spirit leaves Manu's body. Everything seems to be normal. Manu & his family go on vacation. Unfortunately, Raghavan's spirit is still alive to conquer Manu's friend's body.
The music was composed by Anu Malik and Ranjit Barot for the album. Lyrics were penned by Gulzar.
It was well received by critics. Amitabh Bachchan got Filmfare Best Actor (Critics) award for this film.
