Grahan (English: Eclipse) is a 2001 film directed by Shashilal K. Nair, starring Jackie Shroff, Manisha Koirala and Raghuvaran. The film follows the story of Parvati, a rape victim who quests for justice, and comes to know that it is not such a simple task.
The widowed Chief Minister Jagdish Acharya lives an opulent lifestyle along with his daughter, Sunita (Anupama Verma) and son, Sanjay (Prasad Purandare). One day he gets a phone call from the Police Commissioner informing him that a woman named Parvati (Manisha Koirala) has filed a F.I.R. (First Information Report) of rape against Sanjay. A shocked Jagdish instructs the Police Commissioner to proceed according to law. Soon after, while touring, Jagdish has a heart attack and dies. Sunita is asked to be the new Chief Minister and she accepts.
After the funeral the Police arrest Sanjay, hold him in a cell, and try him in court. Sunita's boyfriend, advocate Jaggan Sinha (Jackie Shroff), whose brother, Raghu (Raghuvaran), is also a lawyer, represents Sanjay. Jaggan examines the evidence, witnesses and the complainant. He proves that the complaint was politically motivated by a journalist named Vidyarthi (Ravi Patwardhan) and that there was no evidence of rape. The Judge rules in favour of Sanjay and he is set free.
While the Archarya family celebrates Sanjay's release, Parvati's ensuing marriage with Bhaskar (Raj Zutshi) is called off by his parents and relatives due to the stigma on Parvati.
In the meanwhile, Jaggan finds out that Sanjay did indeed abduct and rape Parvati. Jaggan decides to reopen the case, much to the chagrin of Sunita and her brother. Sunita decides to support her brother and breaks-off with Jaggan.
Jaggan takes on the responsibility of caring for Parvati and takes her to a far off country house and also gets her mentally treated for her trauma. Parvati recovers and returns to the city. She comes to know of the swearing-in ceremony of Sanjay and shoots at him during the ceremony. Parvati is arrested and jailed. Sunita does not want Jaggan to defend Parvati but Jaggan goes ahead and fights the case and wins it: Sanjay had died due to heart attack and not due to Parvati's shot. Parvati is acquitted and Bhaskar accepts Parvati and they get married. Jaggan and Sunita also reconcile.
