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.

All time classic in the list of murder mysteries.
9 June 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Gupt was one of the biggest hits of 1997. It was a lavishly mounted film and directed by Rajiv Rai. Gupt starred Bobby Deol, Manisha Koirala and Kajol in the main roles.

I have watched this movie many times and its varied theme made me interested in it. The movie is not a typical Bollywood crap.

A plot with lots of twist and turns. The movie is about Bobby Deol who is convicted to life imprisonment for murdering his step father.Deol has all the evidence against him in the murder case to kill his father.His love interest is played by old flame Kajol as well as Manisha Koraila who his step father wanted him to get married to.Deol escapes from jail with the help of Manisha and vows to get to the bottom of the matter as to who killed his step father and why He also has the uneviable task of running from the law as a convict who has run from jail.Other co-actors like ompuri, raza murad, prem chopra and others have also performed to their best.i will not tell more as it will reveal suspense for those who have not watched it yet.

Direction by Rajiv Rai is excellent. As the writer, he has done extremely well to keep audience guessing till the end.He also keeps the pace of the film tight and fluid as the editor. The cinematography is eye-catching and Gupt features some of the best locales ever filmed.

The music was a very important factor in making the movie a hit. I think that the music of the movie is among my all-time favorites.Music director viju shah has done an excellent job.Movie's Background score is classic.

''Mere Sanam'', ''Yeh Pyassi Javani'', ''Gupt Gupt'', ''Yeh Pyar Kya Hai'', Mere Khabon Mein'', ''Becheniyam'', ''Duniya Haseenom Ka Mela''

  • all are great to hear with some quick as well as different beats.


This is one of those less movies which has each and every song perfect and loving to hear.The film's soundtrack is one of the best of the year 1997.

This movie is definitely a must see and I highly recommended to everyone.see it to Believe it.10/10
