Storyline

Anand was a well-known, well-respected doctor. One dark and stormy night, he met a young woman at the side of the road. He gave her a ride. She asked to be dropped off at a graveyard. There, she disappeared singing a love song, "Naina Barse." Anand began to hear that song more and more often. His mother arranged a marriage for him. His bride was the very woman he dropped off at the graveyard! Woh kaun thi? (Who was she?) Written by Hemal Sampat

Sadhana at her mysterious best
3 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

On a rainy night, a doctor on his way back home meets a white sari clad girl. He offers her a lift and as soon as she steps in the car wipers cease working.He's even more spooked when the lady tells him she knows the way and guides him outside a cemetery. Enroute when he notices her hand is bleeding, she tells him "Mujhe khoon achcha lagta hai" (I like blood) A while later a distraught father stops his car begging him to save his daughter's life. He follows the man and comes to a manor-like house, but unfortunately the girl in question is already dead. He is surprised to see her, she being the same who he just dropped off at a cemetery a while ago. When he goes back,he encounters some policemen who tell him that the place is deserted and no-one has been living there for a while now. Thus starts off the promising premise of Woh Kaun Thi,a wonderful whodunit by Raj Khosla aided by some great music by Madan Mohan. Sadhana never looked more enticing (check her out in "Lag Ja Gale") and Manoj Kumar thankfully is restrained. The supporting cast is also good.
