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.

A Kajol show all the way!
17 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked Gupt more than I liked Tridev, Mohra and Vishwathma. The plot was unconventional and some of the songs in the movie were awesome. But I must say the lack of better choreography and good costumes stick out like a sore thumb in most of the songs.

The success of Gupt lies in the brilliant portrayal of one of its leading lady, Kajol. She carries the whole movie on her shoulders. She was thoroughly into her character.

The climax will give you goosebumps. After a lot of red herrings, you can't really guess who the real killer might be. And that's where the victory of the script and the director lies.

There are lots of characters in this movie though. But these characters are added to heighten the suspense.

Bobby Deol is strictly okay. He should cut his hair and develop a strong screen presence like his brother Sunny Deol. Manisha Koirala looks good but looks heavy and wears clothes that accentuate her heaviness. The rest of the cast are okay but Om Puri stands out among the rest. I liked the way he mouths his dialogue.

Overall, Gupt is a must watch for Kajol fans! Go watch it with an open heart.
