Storyline

Dr. Viren Goenka lives a very wealthy lifestyle in Bombay, along with his wife, Sanjana, and asthma-ridden daughter, Anishka. He has recently been declared 4 of 11 best Cardio surgeons in the world, and is to be felicitated in Delhi, just a few days before Anishka's birthday. In Delhi he is lodged in a five-star hotel, and after the award presentation he is approached by woman, who forces herself in his room, takes out a gun, and informs him that his daughter has been kidnapped, while another kidnapper is holding his wife hostage. Viren is soon told via the woman's cell phone that the kidnappers demand is one Crore rupees, which Viren arranges to pay. As soon as he arranges for the money, he is told since necessary medicines had to be provided for his ailing daughter, the demand is now two Crore rupees. A frantic Viran also arranges for this additional amount, but barely an hour later, he is told that the ransom demand is now three Crore rupees. Viren does arrange for the money, after...

Gripping thriller that leaves you out of breath
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a powerhouse of a film! Konkana Sen Sharma is the mother of a young child. The father is a famous heart surgeon who has to leave town and after his departure there is a break in and the daughter is kidnapped. She has sever asthma, the members of the family each have a kidnapper or accomplice to guard them. The ante is upped every few hours and time is running out. There are escape plans, attempts to kill, and extortion, and the movie keeps you on the edge of your seat. Why has the girl been kidnapped? What do the kidnappers want? How will it all end? See the film, go on this thrill ride, to find out. You will not be disappointed by the amazing performances from Konkana Sen Sharma as the distraught mother, Irfan Khan as the cruel and disturbing kidnapper, Zakir Hussain and Sandhya Mridul as the accomplices, and Rajit Kapoor as the helpless Dad. Even the little girl is less annoying than most movie kids.

Yes there are some flaws but it all works quite well. The final resolution is shocking, and makes what came before seem in part a bit illogical.. I cannot say more without revealing the punchline - so go figure out for yourself what a couple of flaws are..

But these are minor when you look at the impact the film has. A great way to have two hours fly by!
