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 Perfect Musical Thriller to be enjoyed again and again

In todays world when not even the producers know what they are serving the audience in the name of 'Entertainment' this beautifully made film still is a landmark in film making. It is in true sense a 'Musical Thriller' that today we see only written on posters! Beautifully shot and choreographed, this film is a gripping tale of suspense, drama, and a flavor of humor that keeps the audience excited even today. The lead actors have given their best performance and each character has something to contribute in the story. A very rare thing in Hindi films. The music was so ahead of its time that even today they are being re-mixed for the new generation and are a hit! This type of film comes once in a while and is a must to add to your film library. A must see for every film buff! Nobody can say enough for the film...Just bring it home and enjoy the roller coaster ride! Happy viewing!!
