Madan befriends Vicky, introduces him to Priya and invites him to work for him in Bombay. Vicky and Priya are attracted to each other, much to Madan's delight and he announces their marriage. Before that could happen, Seema kills herself by throwing herself down from the roof of a multi-storied building.

Excellent, Fantastic and Superb..seen it 20 times
29 September 2008 | by (London) – See all my reviews

What can i say about his movie apart from what i mentioned above, can i add awesome. This is the best movie directed by the duo Abbas Mustan who have made great thrillers like Khiladi and Race. I first saw Shah Rukh Khan act in Deewana but didn't care too much. I next saw Shah Rukh Khan in Raju ban gaya gentlemen and once again didn't care too much. I then saw baazigar and boy did this film impress me or what. This is the movie that made Shah Rukh Khan a instant superstar, in my opinion gave a dynamic powerhouse performance. He deserved the Best actor Filmfare award for this as it was a tough nominations list that year. Kajol delivers a great performance as well as Shilpa Shetty. This is borrowed from Hollywood movie Kiss before dying, but let me tell you Baazigar makes Kiss before Dying look like garbage. If you are a Shah Rukh Khan fan and you have not seen his best film,the go watch it now.
