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 great suspense thriller
7 April 2000 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

A movie in true Rajiv Rai tradition, Gupt is a big budget suspense thriller. The songs are well shot and the movie runs at a pace which manages to sustain interest throughout. Bobby plays a man wrongfully convicted for his father's murder and all evidence is against him. He escapes from prison and puts together all the clues to catch the real killer. Kajol acts well while Manisha looks cool. In fact she looks better than she has ever looked in all her recent movies. If you like well made Hindi masala movies, this is your movie.
