The Best Thriller ever made in Hindi Cinema
30 March 2006 | by amitabha_guptaSee all my reviews

I opted to put a serious review on this film as I felt it deserved a better review than the casual ones I found in the internet. First of all it is film ahead of its times. In the 1980's making a suspense thriller with such a well knit plot, without any typical Hindi film song & dance and a great climax was a magnum opus by itself. Directed by one of the best Indian Commercial film directors of recent times- Vidhu Vinod Chopra the story is build around a Hindi film shooting scenario. There is inter personal rivalry and tension between the crew members. During shooting of the film, members of the unit gets murdered one after another. Suspicion falls on all and sundry and ultimately the CBI Inspector (Nasiruddin Shah)solves the crime in a superb climax. Amol Palekar & Shabana Azmi does justice to their talents alongswith other cast. Pankaj Kapoor is brilliant in his small role as Kuku. Nasiruddin Shah is brilliant as usual. Overall It is the best suspense thriller ever made in the Hindi Film Industry.
