Great suspense thriller
2 January 2003 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A good/intelligent suspense thriller. As someone rightly put it: :grippingly successful attempt at suspense, a genre rarely attempted by Hindi cinema. The movie was made in 1972 and we have gone through 30 odd years and yet no one has come out to make something like Dhund in Bollywood. Amazing, 30 years Bollywood and still no intelligent suspense thrillers. The ending could have done with a little better fine-tuning and --SPOILERS-- except for the fact how easily the murderer walks inside the house via the "open at night main-door" {most people I know, sleep at night with their doors locked :-) } , the movie was watertight and gripping. Equally good performances by Zeenat and Sanjay.

A must see for every Hitchcock fans.
