Raj plans to accumulate enough money so that he and Sapna can re-locate to the United States, buy their own property and live the good life. In order to make money, he works day and night, leaving Sapna alone, without any company. Sapna usually ends up going shopping on her own or having coffee with some girlfriends (Rita & Ramona).

When Raj hints that he knows something is going on behind his back, Sapna immediately calls off the affair. Raj gets suspicious so much so that he hires a private detective to trail Sapna. Then both Raj's and Sapna's lives are turned upside down when the police find Ajay's dead body, and assign Inspector Rashid and Constable ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

One of my all-time favorite movies (from today)
12 September 2010 | by (Losa Angelosa) – See all my reviews

I've watched only the first 25 minutes of this movie until this moment, and it has already seem to be a strong contender for one of my all-time favorites. There is a possibility that this would even replace my all-time top favorite, Loha.

I came to watch this movie after another of Karan Razdan's masterpieces, Ei8ht: Shani (Surrender to the power of Shani). That is also a great movie, but this is way better. Extremely bad (over)acting, ridiculously idiotic dialog delivery, poor script!! Wow! So bad that it is good. No, it is great.

PS. OK, I am done watching it. I loved the acting part the most. Meghna Naidu's acting is excellent; one loves the stop-animated way in which her emotion changes: She talks, waits for a few seconds and then suddenly outbursts if she needs to change into another mood, be it happiness, sadness, coyness, excitement or whatever. She has only two facial expressions: one is smiling, and the second is squeezing her face. Needless to say, it is a fact that Karan Razdan did not make her a heroine for her acting capabilities, but rather for her bodily assets, which he then somehow does not fully utilize. The other two central characters also have only one expression each: the husband has the expression of a robotic assassin sent from the future, and the lover is perpetually euphoric and carefree, probably a result of excessive and habitual intake of fine grade cocaine.

Watch it. Highly recommended.

10 out of 10.
