Storyline

Mansi and Amar have been married for years, and have a daughter by this marriage. Amar is employed full-time, while Mansi looks after the household chores and their daughter. Amar earns a steady income, which enables the family to live comfortably, but they cannot afford to be extravagant at all. One day while buying shoes for her daughter, Mansi realizes that shoes are really expensive, and wants to leave the store without purchasing them. Another woman customer named Reena offers to pay for the shoes, as she feels sorry for Mansi. Mansi reluctantly accepts Reena's offer to pay for the shoes, not realizing that Reena has paid for these shoes with a secret agenda that will take Mansi to a whole new world, and change her life forever.

A female version of Seven Years Itch with a Bollywood twist
22 October 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews



Rekha as I never saw before. The scene where she is seduced into prostitution is titillating, not just for its visual appeal but also for the way Rekha does it. She is just as unconventional with other love scenes. Just shows a female movie star in India only comes of age when she comes of age. And that too if she is someone like Rekha, who'd show emotions rather than her cleavage or thighs. A totally Rekha movie, never mind the director, producer, and Om Puri.
