Storyline

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.

Murder, Suspense, Drama
2 September 2011 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

The writer of "Sarkar" holding directorial reigns and teaming up with Kay Kay Menon were the reasons my anticipation levels soared with "The Stoneman Murders". Even if the plot fails to measure up, as always its an absolute treat to watch Kay Kay Menon - pristine, undiluted performance, always! The plot is loosely based on the mysterious killings of the pavement dwellers by a psychopath in 1983. Novel idea but the subject matter turns out to be an past sell by date product turning out to be an overkill for big screen (a 2-episode track in C.I.D on Sony channel would have sufficed in my opinion).

Rukhsar: Pairs up opposite Kay Kay once again after "Sarkar" and sadly the husband-wife track isn't fleshed out adequately.

Vikram Gokhle: As usual reliable.

Arbaaz Khan: Not enough meat in the role, a very-very normal character.

Another fallacy in the writing is the hasty start of the core track whilst the sub-plot attempt to cave in the second half thereby leading to a trough in the narrative.

Manish Gupta as a writer of "Sarkar" is a definite two thumbs up as a director he has a long way to go.

Verdict: Not quite an edgy nail-biting suspense thriller as it potentially could have been
