Storyline

Police Inspector Tejpal Randhawa is assigned to investigate the case of the dead woman whose body was recovered from a small pond. Tejpal links this matter with a missing persons' report filed by Ravi Patwardhan and his father-in-law, and subsequently has the dead woman identified as Sheela, Ravi's wife. According to Ravi, Sheela had left their home to go to visit her parents. When she did not arrive at their house 24 hours later, he himself had gone to their house, and on not being able to locate her, had accompanied his father-in-law to the nearest police station and filed a missing persons' report. Tejpal would like to conclude that Sheela was waylaid on her way to her parents' by person(s) unknown, beaten, and her body was left in the pond. But this case puzzles him, as there was no apparent motive for unknown person(s) to waylay her, as no money has been taken, and her body has not shown any signs of sexual molestation. Taking these facts into consideration, Tejpal starts to ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

The film went thru several title changes. It was first launched as Murder @ 2, then titled Murder at Shrikrishna Buiding. Then it was titled 2 O clock Murder. Then Ram Gopal Varma decided to shoot the film with two versions of the movie. . In one version Anil Kapoor would intentionally kill his wife. This version of the film would be titled " Jaan Bhujke". The second version would have Anil Kapoor accidentally willing his wife. This version of the movie would be called " Galti Se". Ram Gopa Varma then decided to scrap the version " Jaan Bhujke" as he felt it was too negative and evil. The Tamil version "Madhyanam Hatya" met with severe backlash from woman protesters. They felt the film promoted violence against women. Ram Gopal Varma opted not to release the Hindi version despite it being already completed. He eventually named the film " My Wife's Murder".

A multiplex hit
31 August 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The title itself proves that it is not a typical bollywood movie. It comes from the factory of Ram gopal varma, for whom thinking unusually is usual. Even though the story-line is simple, the screenplay keeps the audience glued to their seats. The movie doesn't have even a single boring moment. Almost every frame is relevant to the story( though Boman Irani's personal life is shown, which may seem irrelevant, it IS relevant ).

The characters are well etched, especially those of Anil kapoor, Suchitra, Nandana sen and Boman Irani. The story is very realistic but for the climax, where it slightly deviates to the typical bollywood cliché.

Overall, the movie is really good. But it may not be a hit in the suburban and rural areas because of the inherent morbidity in the movie.
