Things only get worse between father and son, when Jaisingh wants him to get married to Sheetal, a woman he has chosen to be his daughter-in-law. But Sahil wants to marry another girl by the name of Isha, and no amount of pressure can get him to change his mind. Finally, an argument ensues between the two, with Jaisingh getting killed. The Police are summoned, they arrest Sahil, try him in the Indian courts, convict him, but instead of giving him the death sentence, they put him in jail for life. A defiant Sahil, who still maintains his innocence, finds a way to escape, with the authorities hot on his tail, and leading this chase is a senior policeman by the name of Udham Singh, who has never been known to fail in his job of apprehending runaways and other criminals.

User Reviews

the best Hindi suspense movie !!
27 January 2006 | by platinumemeraldSee all my reviews

Manisha is good. Kajol is better. And Bobby is the best .... Screenplay is good, direction is better and music is the best

Awesome, Mindblowing, Superb and similar adjectives to describe the movie....

Well "gupt" happens to be my most favorite Hindi movie and I have seen it 10-12 times !! The story lineup, screenplay, choreography , songs and a pirouette end are the USP of "Gupt".

Rajiv Rai has given the audience his magnum opus !

You should see the movie to gauge it's excellence ! What else to say...!
