Spledind performance
24 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Splendid performances by Manoj & Sadhana.A haunting tale from Raj Khosla. A thoroughly gripping story. Songs are melodious and catchy.Manoj plays his role convincingly and Sadhana is charming as well as haunting in it.All the supporting cast has done their part convincingly.There is not a dull moment in this film.The ambiance of the film is spooky and the songs add to it. The plot is taut and keeps the audience engaged.The viewer gets intrigued by the twist and turns of the story. Sadhana is at her best as the haunting lady who makes the viewer trying to guess her true identity.The suspense is absorbing and keeps one wondering what will happen next? The songs lend an aura of mystery to the film. Great music by MadanMohan.
