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.

Trivia

The neon hoardings and contemporary advertisements were hidden by 1980s style advertisements and film posters that were sourced out painstakingly by the art director from obscure scrap dealing shops. See more »

A Serial Killer On The Loose...Stoning Victims To Death
26 June 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Of the recent crop of Hindi movies, comes Manish Gupta's refreshing dark creepy serial killer thriller. 'The Stoneman Murders', based on a true story, follows suspended officer Sanjay Shelar who has been unofficially assigned to investigate the Stoneman Murders. In doing so, he brings his own life to jeopardy. Gupta's execution is quite impressive. His use of dark colours, an energizing soundtrack and consistency in storytelling is pretty good. I only found the ending to be over the top and there really was no need for an item number. Kay Kay Menon transcends once again and he steals the show. Vikram Gokhale too is terrific as Sanjay's boss who knows that only he can solve the case but is unable to keep his own promise. Rukhsar's acting could use some brushing up but even otherwise she's far from bad. Arbaaz Khan on the other hand fails to leave a mark. Overall, 'The Stoneman Murders' is a fine experimental attempt. If only the director hadn't chosen an over-the-top attempt to 'solve' the case, this could have been a great thriller.
