User Reviews

A sensitive film.....
6 February 2008 | by pakee_666See all my reviews

Ankahee is a simple story about infidelity revolving a beauty queen ,a doctor and a house wife.

Vikram Bhatt undoubtedly proved that he can make sensitive films that can be appreciated by viewers that go for more than just dumb entertainment in a film.

Esha Deol truly shines in the film.She definitely deserves at least an award for her exceptional performance in the film.She manages to create so much of hatred but also pity from the audience.She brigthens up every scene she is in.

Aftab also is commendable in the film.

Amisha Patel shocks you with a composed but striking performance as the vulnerable housewife.

The music by Pritam and the lyrics are just wonderful!!! This films are one of those films that do not get much appreciation that it deserves.

On the whole,Ankahee is a film that should be watched only by people who can appreciate sensitivity and realism in films.
