Storyline

Jaisingh lives in India with his son, Sahil, who dislikes his father. 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.

Overlong but enjoyable Bollywood thriller
21 January 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Gupt works pretty well for the most part. The only drawback is over length. Roughly forty-five minutes could have been edited out without any loss of plot clarity. The film is basically an enjoyable whodunit with Bobby Deol falsely accused of murder. While the songs increase the film's length, some of them are definitely worth watching. Kajol does well in a slightly underdeveloped role. Manisha Koirala provides high-wattage glamour. The various twists and turns help hide the truth regarding the real killer, though it becomes obvious who it is long before the end.

Overall 6/10
