great film
29 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I feel this movie is awesome. It had a very 60's Hollywood suspense theme. The background music helped create the mood of suspense while viewing Sunil Dutt's goal to sidetrack the police. The camera shots were awesome, especially when Sunil Dutt is in the hotel room and he has his hands on his face and the white lighting hits his face. The film had a great glamor to it with actors like Sunil Dutt and Raj Kumar. The main actress (Meena) was very elegant and high maintenance. Sunil Dutt did an awesome job in the film of being the lovable husband to the suspicion husband. It appears that he is already in the interrogation room of the police station. I wish they made Bollywood films like this today.
