Storyline

A woman named Ruby is killed and her body is thrown off of the third floor of a building (4th floor in North America). The police are called in to investigate, and they are assisted by Anil, who was a friend of Ruby. The prime suspect in Anil's eye is Ramesh, who has been lying about his alibi, and also about his relationship with Ruby. But the police have a clue - a button from an overcoat, a button that is worth Rs.250, and it is more than likely that this coat belongs to the killer, who is very wealthy.

A Hitchcockian thriller to be watched again and again. The suspense has been maintained well till the end of the movie.The film is basically about the murder suspect.The climax scene where the real murderer is found is very thrilling.The music of the movie is very good.One interesting aspect in this movie is the murderer is founded out accidentally at the end of the movie.The movie can be watched by all ages of people.Enjoy a three hour thrilling experience.The movie is very fast and it increases the heart beats of the people who watched this movie.This thriller is very much equivalent to thrillers made in the Hollywood.Never forget to watch this thriller and keep guessing the murderer till the end.
