After the sudden death of a suspect in custody, Sub-Inspector Sanjay Shellar from Bombay's Special Crime Unit gets suspended. Shortly thereafter the police come across a recently deceased corpse of a homeless person, treat it as a random killing and close the file. But when more pavement dwellers are killed only between the hours of 10 PM and 4 AM in the Sion - Matunga Harbor Line area on Tuesdays and Saturdays, they review their decision and conclude this to be the work of a serial killer. Sanjay approaches A.I.G. Satam and pleads with him to handle this incident but is told that he cannot do so as he has been fired. When he insists, Satam asks him to do this on his own, and if successful, he will approach Mantralaya and have him reinstated. A grateful Sanjay commences his investigation - not aware that soon he will himself become a suspect after police come across evidence linking him to these killings. Written by rAjOo (

Did You Know?


The pavements where the murders took place were made of black tar unlike the multi-colored jigsaw shaped tiles of the time of release of this film. For the wide shots of pavements, the unit often had to cover half a kilometer of pavement with black tarpaulin sheets to achieve the look of a tar footpath. See more »

Pychopaths,the new aura of Indian Cinemas
23 March 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The Stoneman Murders is a very thrilling & a compelling movie.Top notch performance from Kay Kay Menon.Such gem are these movies in Indian Cinema but still few know about it.Stoneman murders is based on a true incident that happened in parts of Bombay & then Calcutta.Menon plays the role of a suspended cop who has been given a last chance by his superiors to track down the serial killer who kills his victims by throwing stones.Vikram Gokhale too has given a good performance.Totally thrilling experience & the ending is just so surprising.In short,just too good.Some scenes in the movie are just too good.Specially a scene where Menon has to choose between his moral either to help a dying man or to catch the killer.But i am pretty much sure that this movie will rise in the ranks of many making psychopaths as the new aura of Indian Cinema.
