Mumbai-based widow, Usha Dutt, lives in Gulmohar Complex along with her divorced daughter, Priya Sinha and grand-daughter Anjali. Usha's son, Somesh, travels to the U.S. with his wife, and leaves his son, Nakul, with her. One day she witnesses someone falling from an upper floor, summons other residents but no body is found. She continues to observe the particular floor and notices a young female child. On the pretext of inviting her for Anjali's birthday, she knocks on the door, and is told by the lady, Tara Yadav, that they have no children, and it is just her and her husband, Raj, who live there. Not convinced, she notifies the police, who refuse to get involved, and she continues to spy and gets the support of other residents as well as her grandchildren. Then a mysterious male starts phoning her - and shortly thereafter a frantic Priya will telephone the police to notify them that her mother and her nephew are missing. Written by rAjOo (

Nice kids movie
6 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

I actually expected it to be much worse....but naani is a very lovable character, a bit snoopy though and then she chances upon a girl in one of the windows of her society and immediately links it with a child trafficking racket - you know where this movie is headed within the first 20 mins.

Nothing great about the story but it is told nicely at a decent pace. All characters are good although there is an unnecessary teen love story in between( with songs) which is totally unrelated to the plot - it doesn't even have a masala value.

I couldn't complete this movie but i think its not that bad - just OK.
