not original
20 December 2005 | by nasirsalman2000See all my reviews

before i watched this movie everyone told me its an original story that bollywood has come up with. so i thought it must be quite good the way people were going on about it. so thats when i decided to watch it.

as the movie opened with the murder of a rich man's wife and Aftab being the main suspect ad he hires Lisa Raye to be his lawyer ho falls in love with him, i realised where this film was copied from.

It was a ditto copy of the Hollywood movie "Jagged Edge" starring Jeff Bridges and Glenn Close. I watched it till the end and then thought can bollywood ever come up with an original storyline this good???

One good recommended film has to be i'll say Footpath, when i saw it i was amazed by the story, the sets and the acting as it was directed by the same director of Kasoor.
