Storyline

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 (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

great thriller
21 December 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

There are two kind of thrillers. The "whodunnit"or suspense thriller and the psychological thriller. Bollywood has produced quite a few of the first ranging in quality from very, very good (Gumnaam), to good (like 100 Days, remake of The Eyes Of Laura Mars) to plain stupid (too many). Very rarely did they try the latter. But when they did, it turned out to be quite good like Rajesh Khanna's Red Rose and this movie by the nephew of the evergreen Dev Anand, Ketan Anand. Years before Hollywood turned out the serial killer routine movies Ketan Anand made this movie which is about a serial killer. Okay, we know Nasseerudin is the killer and we know why he kills but thats not what the movie is about. In the thriller series Columbo, we know who is the killer, how they did it and that Columbo will catch ye culprit. Bappi Lahiri was great (this was before the Himmatwala days when Bappida still made some great songs), Kanwaljeet and Shabana Azmi are not bad but the movie belongs to Shah! One of the girls whose pictures are on the wall as a victem was the unknown Sonu Walia who would later become an "actress"herself. Well, actress... she appeared in some movies (that doesn't make someone in actor or actress. Worth repeat watching
