Storyline

Kaya, a Buddhist village girl from Spiti, is waiting to join the monastery. An elderly lama, dreams of his teacher's rebirth and Kaya is assigned to find and bring the reincarnated boy to the monastery. Kaya finds Llahmo in Mumbai and they plan their journey back to Spiti. On their way back, Llahmo witnesses the murder of a police officer. Police Officer Shiven is assigned to investigate the case. He forbids Llahmo from leaving town much to the resentment of Kaya. Shiven gets into danger when he realizes that some police officers are involved in the murder. He escapes with Kaya and Llahmo to Spiti. It is here that love blossoms between Kaya and Shiven and the movie changes track. Kaya's father does not approve of their love because he thinks that romantic feelings are sinful. Kaya is torn between love and celibacy and has to decide which one she wants. Written by Jism

Paap is an almost exact remake of 'Witness' starring Harrison Ford, but made very well.
11 April 2005 | by (South of Equator) – See all my reviews

Paap is an enjoyable romantic thriller, made very well. It is one of the few Hindi films that is very enjoyable, although the musical score is somewhat disappointing. Even if you've seen 'Witness' (starring Harrison Ford) before, the film will engage you. Witness dealt with an Amish community, and this one is set in a small Buddhist community. Remake or not, this is good cinema. We ought to see more of this kind of films rather than the mindless ones churned out regularly from the Hindi film industry.

Some other remakes that are recommended:

1. Dewaange - Akshay Khanna - (after 'Primal Fear' starring Richard Gere and Edward Norton)

2. Aithraz - Akshay Kumar - (after 'Disclosure' starring Michael Douglas and Demi Moore)
