Storyline

Siddharth Roy gets discharged from jail, and with his lawyer's assistance, returns to his rental flat in Mumbai and is asked to consider a divorce settlement from his wife, Maya. While in his flat he finalizes a manuscript titled 'The Prisoner', and then attends the Om Shree Internet Cafe to email publisher, Tim Wright. When he returns home he finds that the briefcase he got from the Internet café is not his, and contains Rs.20 Lakhs in cash. He decides to keep the cash, and returns to the café to see if he can locate his briefcase in order to get his book published. He does not do so - but is unaware that the briefcase belongs to a gangster, Atul Bhai, who has already assigned two armed men, Amin Bhai, and Aseem, to get it back, while the café attendant, Mohan, who had Googled Siddharth, is actively engaged in locating him.

Interesting debut film with a message
28 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Siddharth The Prisoner holds the audience's interest even though it has a clichéd story line with a briefcase mix up et al. Debutant director Pryas Gupta has relied on some slick camera-work and a fresh cast to indicate why the teachings of the ancient scriptures are still apt for modern times. It was interesting to note that a majority of the film, and the lead role primarily, were bereft of dialogues. In a way this action prepared itself for the climax and as such also made the movie less suspenseful. Delivering the message to the audience was given preference over explaining some situations. On an overall basis Siddharth proves to be an interesting debut film, and the audience can expect to receive more from the upcoming director with greater curiosity. 6/10.
