Things only get worse between father and son, when Jaisingh wants him to get married to Sheetal, a woman he has chosen to be his daughter-in-law. But Sahil wants to marry another girl by the name of Isha, and no amount of pressure can get him to change his mind. Finally, an argument ensues between the two, with Jaisingh getting killed. The Police are summoned, they arrest Sahil, try him in the Indian courts, convict him, but instead of giving him the death sentence, they put him in jail for life. A defiant Sahil, who still maintains his innocence, finds a way to escape, with the authorities hot on his tail, and leading this chase is a senior policeman by the name of Udham Singh, who has never been known to fail in his job of apprehending runaways and other criminals.

A thrilling blockbuster of 90's.
9 November 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Gupt is really a thrilling blockbuster of 90's. I would appreciate the director for doing an excellent 11th hour suspense blockbuster. This movie reminds me the days of repeatedly watchable thrillers like Teesri Manzil (1966) and Jewel thief (1967).Excellent background score adds a great value to the movie. Of course really a taut movie which increases your anxiety to know the suspense.The major characters of movie had done a great job by delivering excellent Dialogues.Even lengthy a repeatedly watchable thriller by even non-Bollywood fans.No other trilling blockbuster came like as Gupt in the 90's.Justwatch it and enjoy the suspense.
