One of the best noir movies ever made in the
13 March 2003 | by anilkfanSee all my reviews

Indian film industry. Mahesh Bhatt's direction is mind blowing and the script is one of the best I have seen! After every few reels, it gives you a twist that makes you start pondering!

Anil Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Suresh Oberoi, Rohini Hattangadi are all simply superb! Definitely in Mahesh Bhatt's top 3 movies!
