The best Indian thriller
9 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I was amazed by this movie. I won't say too much to give away thought but this movie shows how ambition can become obsession. With the Indian film industry and the mob as a background, it also shows the struggle of those who want to make it big in the industry. It is Bollywood's best thriller so far! Full of suspense and great performances! I think Mahima Chaudhry is the only actress today who's done nothing but good work (and who's still struggling with success). Her movies are really full of surprises (and she also gives pleasantly surprising performances. It's a pity and a real shame on Bollywood that the film didn't succeed! India's best thriller has gone unnoticed! The only other Indian thriller that I'll put on the same shelf is Teen Deewarein. But there's still hope for this one and hopefully people will watch this movie otherwise they really don't know what they're missing.
