A poor show all the way!
29 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Director duo Abbas-Mustan who gave us decent thrillers like Khiladi and Baazigar failed to deliver this time They tried to make a trashy remake of the Hollywood thriller 'Sleeping with the Enemy'. After all, this movie was already remade two times in Bollywood as 'Agnisakshi' and 'Yaraana' which flopped badly.

Juhi Chawla was the only star who shined throughout the movie. Rishi Kapoor should STOP acting like a romantic nut and that is. Arbaaz Khan is totally unconvincing as the abusive husband. His dialogue delivery is horrible and he must do something about his menacing voice. Johnny Lever, again, is a total bore. His comedy routine doesn't go well with the plot which is otherwise serious.

Music is average. Editing is okay. Cinematography could've been better. At the box-office, a total no-go.
