Dead do not stay DUMB?
25 September 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This so called thriller is alright as far as the murder and mystery part is considered but fails to become nail-biting as the suspense and storytelling is mediocre and placid..somehow the mood of a thriller is missing. But it is worth seeing just for how Anil ( Amol) kills Vijayendra and Daver( Kader Khan) starts blackmailing him.. The climax supposed to be a shocking one comes off as a tame one with a usual dis-hum dis-hum and thus leaves one a little disappointed. Zarina Wahab making up the third part of this earlier Chitchor star cast, is adequate as Amol's wife.Nothing to mention about music score... Director Esmayeel Shroff's maiden attempt..OK for a lazy afternoon...
