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...

Trivia

Director Prakash Jha and producers Ravi Agarwal were fighting for the title Deadline. According to Director Prakash Jha, the title was registered three years ago whereas Agarwals film Deadline Sirf 24 Ghante is complete and is on the verge of release next month. Director Prakash Jha issued a letter to Agarwal saying not to use the title as they have already registered it three years back. He explained that the title Deadline was registered with the association much before and makes no difference by adding few words to it. The issue has become a bone of contention today between the All India Motion and TV Producers association of India. See more »

Please see "Trapped"
19 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A blatant copy of "Trapped" starring Charlize Theron and Kevin Bacon marks this horrible movie. When will the Indian directors stop making copies of Hollywood flicks? Why don't they instead copy movies of Fellini or Godard? At least they will create a good cinematic sense among the Indian audience. Apart from the acting department in which almost everyone did their very best, I don't think this movie needs any recommendation. Awful!! Yes I would say the cinematography was good, the pace was good and yes, to an audience who doesn't have a widespread Hollywood knowledge, its a top-notch thriller. But movie making is an art which needs creativity. And there is a difference between copying and being inspired. When you are copying the entire theme, the rest doesn't count for me as I know that the team has faltered in the very start. Thats why I give it a three.
