Storyline

An unknown pregnant girl has ended her life by hanging herself from ceiling fan in a room of a little known hutment of Mumbai. In middle of the night, an uninvited Inspector lands in the house of an eminent Industrialist to investigate the case. Baffled by suggestion of being linked with the incident and shocked by the thought of being responsible for death of a person surviving at the outermost fringe of their vision of society, Vikrant Pradhan and his family give in to the interrogation reluctantly. As the evening turns into night and as the night grows deeper and deeper, the questions posed by Inspector Vivek prod to uncover some of the darkest secrets held within minds of every member of Pradhan family. As if under a hypnotic spell of Inspector Vivek, every individual makes a journey through dark and remote corridors of their mind. As if hazy layers of time subside to play images after images from the past. As if Inspector Vivek holds a magical mirror in front of every member to ... Written by Amitabha Singh

An inspector calls ... again
28 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hindi art film is a close adaptation of J B Priestley's play "An Inspector Calls." Surprisingly for a Hindi film, the "inspiration" of the Priestley drama *is* acknowledged, albeit only in the end credits.

If you know the play, you know the story. Wealthy businessman, fresh from celebrating the engagement of his daughter to the son of another industrial dynasty, is intruded upon by a police inspector. A young woman has hanged herself this evening in a Mumbai slum, and evidence at the scene suggests such a humble person had a significant connection to this family of movers and shakers. Each member of the clan is brought into the living room where the relentlessly interrogative cop brings out his or her links to the dead woman. Early on we get visual and dialogue clues that the inspector is something more than just Lt Columbo on the job.

I rented the film because it featured Neha Dubey, whom I liked a whole lot in "Monsoon Wedding" and wanted to see more of, and she didn't disappoint me, in a nice turn as the daughter of the millionaire. (Dubey's real-life mom plays her mother in the film, though the characters have little on-camera interaction -- but that's part of the point.) The ensemble cast all handle their roles well. The stage origins of the material are obvious but it's opened up via the film format and stays watchable and interesting throughout. Be advised that it's not a "Bollywood" film by any stretch -- rather, an Indian art picture with no musical interludes and a social message beyond the actual story. "Sau Jhooth Ek Sach" is the equivalent of a first-rate regional theater production of "An Inspector Calls," with localized Indian references.
