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 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 »

Rukhsar Deserved An Oscar For Her Backless Scene
23 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rukhsar's backless scene in The Stoneman Murders is without a doubt one of the greatest contributions to enlightenment and culture of our time. I firmly believe that Rukhsar should have gotten an Oscar for this scene. There aren't too many actresses that would allow her beautiful bare back to be filmed so close-up. I have never seen a better scene in my entire life, and believe me I have seen a lot!!! You just can't put it in words. Just the best of the best. Flawless, perfect! This has got to be one of the top ten scenes ever made (in my opinion). There are very few scenes that can keep me watching over and over again. I just love this scene. INCREDIBLE is the best word I can use for this scene. Everything in it is perfect. Rukhsar performs brilliantly, the direction deserved an Oscar and the editing is superb. Basically it's a scene you have to see, over and over again. This scene has everything you could want: compelling acting, brilliant direction, stunning cinematography, and some excellent shots of Rukhsar's beautiful bare back. Rukhsar's backless scene in The Stoneman Murders is one of the most important scenes ever produced!
