Horror Meets Murder Mystery
17 April 2011 | by (Port Blair) – See all my reviews

'Saboot' is one of the earlier flicks that really poses the sense of horror. The storyline is good, with good actors doing justice to their roles. The movie failed to create much buzz as compared to other Ramsay movies like 'Purana Mandir', 'Hotel', 'Dahshat', 'Shaitaani Ilaaka' and 'Purani Haveli', however it is one of the most remarkable movies ever made in the world of horror genre.

Seth Dharamdas (Trilok Kapoor), a widower is a wealthy industrialist and wishes to sell one of his factories to Dhanraj (Prem Chopra). Dhanraj is in high spirits and tells the news of this future takeover to Mr. Ajit Roy (Om Shivpuri) who nests plans of his own. Dharamdas has 2 daughters Asha (Vidya Sinha) and Kaajal (Kaajal Kiran). Asha has shortly been married to her love interest Aakash (Vinod Mehra). After few days of happy marriage Aakash dies in an air crash. Asha sobs at this loss but can't do anything to fend off the harsh times she is caught into. After Aakash's death Dharamdas cancels his plan to sell the factory to Dhanraj as Aakash was the sole entitled owner of the factory and Dharamdas would like to preserve this factory as a souvenir. Dhanraj doesn't want this deal be cancelled and hence bribes Dharamdas's trusted employees Manmohan Saxena (Roopesh Kumar), Ashok Gupta (Narendra Nath), and Rita (Padma Khanna) for a small favour.

Dharamdas has to go to Nainital for a business trip. However, he is approached by Dhanraj, Ashok, and Manmohan in the train itself and is forced to sign an agreement that would entitle Dhanraj to be the sole owner of all his riches. Poor Dharamdas does as told, however the crooks kill him and bury him nearby. During the fracas, Ashok's knife falls down into the grave but he is in a hurry and doesn't have time to take it out.

In the meantime, Asha and Kaajal are being looked after by Mr. Ajit Roy, who used to hold a responsible post in the factory during Dharamdas's ownership. Ajit Roy seems to know too much about Dhanraj and his confederates, and is now all set up to sign a special deal with Dhanraj.

Anand (Navin Nishchol) is a police officer and is assigned the task to solve the case of Dharamdas's murder. Soon Dhanraj and his friends get killed one by one by the mysterious ghost of Dharamdas. Anand investigates the murders and discovers a unique way to apprehend the killer.

Saboot reminds me of the iconic cult 'whozdunit' thriller 'Gumnaam' which had a storyline so tight that it never let the viewers yawn for a second. Saboot has the charisma of a thriller film, that viewers will appreciate after it would end. Navin Nischal has been superb as a strict cop. The movie hardly wastes time in romantic sequences, comedy and melodrama that actually kill the soul of a horror movie. Om Shivpuri, Prem Chopra and Trilok Kapoor have been perfect in their roles. Narendra Nath and Roopesh Kumar have well-imbibed the sense of being a 'crook', as the same reflects in their performance. Both of them have considerable roles in the movie. Vidya Sinha has a very special role which stretches from the beginning till end. Kaajal Kiran doesn't have much to promise as she is mostly seen daydreaming about her soul mate.

I highly recommend this movie to all the Bollywood horror addicts. Watch it once, you won't regret.
