Did You Know?


The film went thru several title changes. It was first launched as Murder @ 2, then titled Murder at Shrikrishna Buiding. Then it was titled 2 O clock Murder. Then Ram Gopal Varma decided to shoot the film with two versions of the movie. . In one version Anil Kapoor would intentionally kill his wife. This version of the film would be titled " Jaan Bhujke". The second version would have Anil Kapoor accidentally willing his wife. This version of the movie would be called " Galti Se". Ram Gopa Varma then decided to scrap the version " Jaan Bhujke" as he felt it was too negative and evil. The Tamil version "Madhyanam Hatya" met with severe backlash from woman protesters. They felt the film promoted violence against women. Ram Gopal Varma opted not to release the Hindi version despite it being already completed. He eventually named the film " My Wife's Murder".

Director Jijy Philip impresses with his debut thriller. People who were expecting a suspense film would be disappointed. The makers from the start said that the film goes into Ravi's mind. It's more psychological then thrilling. It's great to see that movies like these are being made these days. No outdoor shootings, no actors dancing around trees, just simply good film-making and performances. Anil Kapoor is beyond great. He lives Ravi, he breathes Ravi. His facial expressions are amongst the best in Bollywood (Amitabh is good at this too). But this role was made for Anil and only Anil. The climax scene you get to see how great of an actor Anil is. He just shines in the climax, that will certainly bring tears in your eyes. The situation this character was in is just amazing, and that is due to the great screenplay and storyline. Editing and cinematography are ace, while background score is praise-worthy. Suchitra in her short role leaves an impact, while Nandana Sen lives up to her character. Boman shines in his well-written role. The film is gripping throughout, but it's the climax that should be talked about over and over again. I watched the climax scene about 5 times, I just can't get enough of Anil's performance. I would rate this as his second best performance in his career. Eeshwar being first, My Wife's Murder being second, and Pukar being third. Two people who deserve awards are Jijy Philip and Anil Kapoor, if these two go empty handed this year it would be really sad.
