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 two get married in Udaipur, and subsequently Sarha re-locates to live with Zaid in Mumbai. One day terrorists strike at a club, killing 20 people, & critically injuring several others.

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)

Good
12 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

a good film but not amazing...yes, it is different and thought-provoking like all mahesh Bhatt films. This film, however, could have been MUCH better. Everyone acted well, direction was great. Cinematography was also good, so where did it lack? The movie was too fast paced. The film should have been at least 2 hours and 30 minutes. It seemed rushed.Too much takes place in the first 30 minutes of the film.Too many questions are asked. Mahesh Bhatts previous film, awarapan, which was directed by Mohit Suri, was brilliant! This film, however, had the potential to be even better than Awarapan since Terrorism is something everyone can relate to. Awarapan was only for people who understand the true Muslim religion. Basically Dhokha is a good film but could have been better. Also, why is there use of many English words in this film? This is a Hindi film and should be totally in Hindi. When they speak English it sounds fake. The film gets a 7 because it is good and the subject is quite meaningful.
