Storyline

More than a 150 people are killed in leopard or tiger attacks in India every year due to rampant poaching and encroachment on the wilderness. Such animals have no choice but to invade human habitats and become man-eaters. This story is inspired by one such attack. A couple vacationing in the Indian jungle are disturbed by the arrival of the wife's ex-lover, opening wounds that are best left unhealed; but their troubles have only begun. They are being hunted by a leopard that's turned man-eater and it will stop at nothing to satisfy its hunger. Written by Anonymous

Excellent Movie
15 May 2012 | by vishal-gnutechSee all my reviews

Few of my friends gave nice reviews of the film, so as i had nothing to do on a Sunday evening i went to see the movie. First thing i liked is camera shots and Cinematography.

Movie started slowly but after first 30 minutes it picked up the pace. Nice acting by all the actors and you cant predict what is going to happen next.

Some stunning visuals and great back ground music made it a good thriller.

I was on the edge of the seat till the end.

I have enjoyed the movie very much and recommend it to every one Nandana Sen was hot and Javed Jaffrey's intense acting made my day.

In the end i should say that instead of seeing Movies Like Jannat 2 or Murder 2 people should go out and see movies like The Forest
