The city is rocked by a series of brutal murders. All the victims are women of lose character or prostitutes, and all have been brutally slain. Inspector Arjun Dutt is assigned this case, and he launches an investigation. The only clue is part of a photograph. Arjun concludes that these murders are being committed by a young man named Vikram alias Devendra. Arjun's superiors do not agree with him, and fault him. His superiors also find out that Vikram was Arjun's close friend, and both were rivals for the same woman, Kiran. The point to ponder is why would Arjun want to accuse Vikram, a man he has known since his college days, of these heinous crimes? Written by rAjOo (

Where is the suspense, please?
5 July 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A Suspense thriller about a serial killer should work at two levels-one: the real motive of the killer and the other Suspense about the Id of the killer himself... To that extent, this arty looking, low-budget 80s movie failed me on both accounts..It is more of a manhunt than a suspense thriller. It is never clearly brought out why the killer hunts down individual loose character women of the street and murders them. Later on he even murders a girl who loves him and then tries to kill another who did nor reciprocate his affections..Pray, what is his motive , please?..Even insanity works on logic....

Even the id of the killer is not kept concealed till the end, as half way thru the movie the Police Inspector Kanwaljeeet exposes the identity of the killer correctly..It is only sheer luck that the killer manages to keep evading the cops but when the end does come, it is a certain dampener.. Plus add too many flash back scenes of hip young College life, songs and Theatre and drama acts of the heroine etc drag the movie down...

Oh,well, Murder mysteries or serial killer thrillers is not everybody's cup of tea...

Shabana Azmi and Naseeruddin Shah along with Kanwaljeet somehow prop up the movie with fine acting but a weak script lets everyone down..Plus the production values look like that of a shoddily shot art film... ( At least from the Al-Mansoor video print which I saw)
