Storyline

An urban contemporary film about adultery, murder and betrayal in the film noir style. A simple story to which the director imparts a feeling of unrest and disquiet, catching the city in its various moods. The film breaks generic conventions, notably in the presentation of the private detective through his deglamourised life and his process of discovery of 'who did it'. It is not constructed through his point of view at all. In fact the policeman and the detective, the fact finders, are in the dark about the crime, to the very end. Written by Metamuse Global Entertainment

Great entry to Indian indie film
10 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not a Bollywood film but Indian Indipendant cinema done for a low budget by Mr Kapoor with a group of theater actors. Two of them, Kashmera Shah and Nasserudin Shah have now become well known actors and both have done Hollywood and Indian films.

Its has great art direction, excellent acting and a unique screenplay about murder and betrayal. It was, however, made for the Indian audience which prefers longer films. I would have liked to seen it cut down by at least 10 minutes to be tighter.

But if you would like to indulge in pure Indian independent cinema, this is a great film. It has all the elements of a murder thriller with lots of beautiful shots and solid acting performances sprinkled in. Plus you will see early works of Nasser or Kashmera before they became famous.

Enjoy!
