Storyline

Post-September 11, 2001, Zaid Ahmed Khan lives a wealthy lifestyle in Mumbai and resides in an apartment at Shanti Kutir, Juhu Tara Road, Mumbai, and works as an Assistant Commissioner of Police. He is of marriageable age, and his marriage is arranged with Sarha, who is the daughter of Parvez, sister of Dhanish, and grand-daughter of Saeed Noor Bux, who are based in Nasik.

The Police are put on alert, and Zaid is summoned to Police Headquarters to identify a body. To his shock the body turns out to be that of Sarha - who was not a victim but was a suicide-bomber. Before he could get over this shock, Zaid is arrested by Anti-Terrorist Squad Chief Raj Mehra and questioned for several days. The media, his friends, including fellow police officers, already believe that he is guilty. Finally, after ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Suspense + Love Story + Communal Disharmony + Sucide Bomber
22 October 2007 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

If Daddy does a critically acclaimed "Zakhm", will daughter lag behind? Yes, "Dhokha" seems very much inspired by the former and tried to dish out a product which is a mix of suspense, marriage, communal (dis)harmony, pseudo-secularism and suicide bomber.

Muzammil Ibrahim is not too bad especially the script demands varied emotions. Can act, though woody at times... but hey – not too bad for a newcomer.

Tulip Joshi – one expression. The scene carrying a machine gun in her hand reminds you of a 1980's movie.

Aushima Sawhney – The story could have done away with her character. Does every product from Bhatt camp has to do with extra-marital relationships?

Ashutosh Rana , Anupam Kher, Gulshan Grover – reliable as usual.

Songs by M M Kreem are good.

Finally about Pooja Bhatt, I think she is good as a production controller for she seems to put more effort on bean-keeping thereby killing the creative force required to don the director's hat. Her fallout with the lead actor – is it a mere publicity stunt?

The story-line is very much predictable. While "Dil Se" had delved deeper into the psyche of suicide bomber, "Dhokha" deals the issue at a superficial level.

However it seems the project did initiate with an honest attempt to give an insights into the cause and effects.
