Great potential squandered
18 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie had an intriguing real story as a reference point and a potential to really turn a cracker of a movie out of it dwelling into the different personalities and their motives around the event. Unfortunately, Ramgopal Verma prefers to focus more on Mahi's assets and his creepy perverted camera angles focusing on Mahi's body takes away from the whole story.

Into the second half, about 10 minutes of Zakir's early investigation makes you hope that the second half would be better. But by then the movie has dug itself into a big hole and is not able to get out.

Do yourself a favor. Read Meena Baghel's take on the event in her book instead.
