Storyline

Author Shaukat Vashisht lives a wealthy life-style in India with his wife, Antara, who is a College Teacher. Shaukat achieves fame when he is nominated for the Booker prize, and goes on to win it. His publishers, hoping that they have unleashed a goldmine, are disappointed with his subsequent works, and soon Shaukat is depressed to such an extent that he almost gives up writing. Then he decides to write a story on a woman named Tamanna, and figures that he will base this story on none other than Antara herself. For this purpose he starts to make note of her every movement, and it is then that he finds out that she has an admirer in fellow-teacher, Yash, a dashing young man - with a bright future ahead of him. Shaukat also finds out that Antara has never mentioned Yash to him, nor has she informed Yash that she is married. Watch how his obsession with Tamanna blurs Shaukat's reality with fiction and hallucination - with hopes still high that he will make a come-back and be nominated ...

Very good film!!
5 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really loved this film, it was unique and different compared to other films that i have watched in the past. Ash is one of my fave actresses in bollywood today, it was on the tele one day so i decided to watch it.

Aishwarya's performance was brilliant in the film and she looked amazing the eye makeup and the nose ring made her look very different compared to what she had looked before and brought her beauty to it's highest level, she actually made me wear a nose ring too, she looked amazing.

Sanjay Dutt is one of my fave actors, he was just brilliant in the movie and his performance really touches you and make you feel the character, he was just amazing.

Zayed Khan i can honestly say was wrongly casted i didn't like his performance and he really need some acting lessons. Apart for that the music was just brilliant and you guys really should watch this film.
