Storyline

The setting is in scenic Simla, summer capital of the British Raj in the 1970's. Chandramukhi from Bombay is on holiday with her parents and so is Naresh, a US educated medical professional with his parents. Chandramukhi and Naresh show interest in each other, encouraged by their parents. Choudhary Janak Singh, an important and wealthy man lives with his lawyer daughter Karuna in a lovely colonial period mansion. Their house-guest Mohan, a lawyer from Chandigarh is a protege of Janak Singh. Karuna and Mohan develop a romantic interest. The story of Paro and Madho, who lived in pre-independence India comes to affect the present. Events of thirty years ago in the lives of Paro, Madho,Janak, Saraswathi, the gardener and the disgraced policeman come back to create soulful links between past and present. Themes from the life of Zamindars, British Colonial rulers, parapsychology and law are skilfully twisted, so that most turns in the tale are unexpected. Attention to detail is excellent.

Spooky film.....
9 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie is an interesting past life chilling drama. Hema malini and Rajesh Khana play the part of lovers in their past life only to be reawaked by the Reincarnated Hema malini who unearths a dark secret. This film is not a full on horror flim its more of as supense murder mystery that will leave you really spooked. The film features a lovely soundrtack featuring some lovely romantic numbers. Hema Malini's performance is really very good.Raj kumar plays the evil protagonist whose actions form the basis for the drama Though this wasn't the scarriest film I have ever seen it sure did spook me out for the rest of the evening. Worth a Watch 9 out of 10.
