Storyline

8 X 10 revolves around Jai, a man who has the power to see into the past. He uses this power to help people even though using it nearly kills him every time. When his father, Jatin, dies in a mysterious boating accident, Jai's suspicion is aroused by the appearance of an oddball detective, Happi. The only article that can help him in his investigation is an 8 X 10 photograph taken just minutes before the accident by his mother Savitri that shows Jatin surrounded by his best friend and lawyer, Anil, his adopted son, Adit and younger brother, Sundar. Jai decides to use this photograph to go into the past to unravel the mystery surrounding Jatin's death. As he discovers clues he realizes that his father was actually murdered and that everyone on the boat had a motive. Now on a mission to unmask the killer, he undertakes the dangerous journey of visiting the past repeatedly. A cat and mouse game ensues, with the killer outwitting Jai at every turn. As the bodies pile up and time begins to... Written by Armaan

Nagesh Kukunoor vs. Akshay Kumar. Who's the villain?!!
4 April 2009 | by manjodudeSee all my reviews

Saw the movie today and I feel this is director Nagesh Kukunoor's best, after Iqbal. And also his first murder mystery thriller! Everything is quite cool about the movie whether it's Canada's locations, cinematography, the music, special effects, performances & above all, the story & direction. Akshay's screen presence & Javed Jaffrey's comedy is what engages your eye throughout. And everyone else adds their bit of strength to the cast like the cutie pie Ayesha Takia, evergreen Girish Karnad & Sharmila Tagore and the rest. I've begun to believe that Nagesh is the Manoj Shyamalan of Bollywood cinema! They've kinda similar feel towards film-making. Nothing so negative about the movie but I felt Akshay could've emoted better. Anyway, you'll have a mighty surprise to know who's the killer in the end, probably a chill! So, who's the primary 'evil' behind this fascinating murder mystery? Nagesh Kukunoor or Akshay Kumar? You decide after watching the movie :)
