The Police would like to assign this case to Inspector Shirke, however, Sub-Inspector Sujata Deshmukh insists that she can solve these murders with the help of her senior, Inspector Rohan Sethi. The matter is re-assigned to both of them and they soon become involved in this investigation.

After another murder at the Samurai Club, the Police find that they have a suspect named Jagdish, who also happens to be Divya's alcoholic paternal uncle. Despite of Divya's protests, Jagdish is arrested and held in a cell.

good pop corn flick
12 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom, Leicester) – See all my reviews

First of all great musical score ...WOW...fantastic!! The are times when the tension fails to hit the spot...and the Director could have added more directorial suspense..but overall a good pop corn flick...at the end of the day it entertained me and my friends...and one of the few films that had us talking and discussing in our after movie meal!! We went primarily to see the Movie, as we had heard it was Bollywood Star, Rupak Mann's screen debut. She looked cute and great on screen....disappointing that we only got to see her for a few scenes...but she did a grand job...well done girl...you certainly had screen presence! Thought Meera's character was a bit flat...and Ashmit was definitely mis-cast. Best part for me....the Ali-Ali song...great score...and hey, we get a bonus of seeing our very own Bollywood starlet Rupak showing her rhythm...great stuff. Not your Jagged Edge...but deserves a view for the sheer musical score and for Ruapk's genuine performance.
