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)

Best Movie of the Year.
12 September 2005 | by (Aurora, IL) – See all my reviews

Just a 2 second flash of Anil's face after his wife slaps him was enough to tell me MWM, at the very least, would feature a stunning performance from Anil Kapoor. And right I was. This is the best male performance of the year. Anil's ability to convey so much through subtle changes of his face and body is like watching beautiful art unfold on the screen. There are moments in the movie where he just falls apart....its really something to watch. Ur heart goes out to his character. And this tremendous performance is further enhanced by the overall product MWM is. Well etched characters, excellent background music, technically slick(RGV production after all) and a screenplay so brilliantly written that there isn't a single boring frame in the entire movie. Every scene builds the tension and gets the viewer engrossed into the characters' lives like few movies have. Director Jijy Philip deserves BIG TIME kudos for perfectly executing this realistic thriller and extracting superb performances from the entire cast(even the cute little KIDS rock). Boman Irani continues to amaze me with his ability to BECOME every character he plays. It's hard not to love this guy. The girl who played Rani's younger sister in Black(don't know her name) is very solid as well....and I especially love how her and Anil's relationship is portrayed throughout.

Bottomline, MWM is a must-see. A simple story taken to great heights with an award worthy screenplay and spectacular performances from everybody, especially Anil and Boman.
