Haasil is a 2003 film directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia. Irfan Khan won Filmfare award for Best actor in negative role for his portrayal of Ranvijay Singh in the movie. The film is set and shot in and around Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh.


When college student Anirudh (Jimmy Shergill) meets pretty co-ed Niharika (Hrishitaa Bhatt), they quickly become romantically involved. Unfortunately, their relationship can't escape the politics involved in sex and gang life. When Aniruddha meets Ranvijay (Irfan Khan), a big man on campus prone to toting a gun, he believes he's merely helping his fellow student escape from a rival gang. It's not long into their friendship, however, that Aniruddha realizes Ranvijay is just using him as a means to get to Niharika.



The soundtrack features 7 songs composed by Jatin Lalit, with lyrics from Israr Ansari and one song and the background score composed by Abhishek Ray

In recent times, Haasil has gained a cult following. Haasil is gaining popularity with the help of cable TV, CDs and the Internet. It contains extremely popular Indian movie actors, and because of that, the dialogues of every superstar are well known among the audience. There are college groups consisting of crazy fan boys doting on superstars, where students talk in Haasil dialects; they are called Haasilmay (हासिलमय) (may=very much into).[citation needed]
