Very appealing
25 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

I had the chance to see the film before it was released to the film festivals in the United States and my first impression was that film had some sort of appeal to attract audience in this twisted story line. I was able to get to the clue of what lies beneath the story only at the end of the film. The film is about destiny and what we do to achieve this destiny, to what type of extend we can go to gain what we desire. Everybody should agree that our life has some story in it whether we believe in destiny or not or whether my story or your story of life defines some fate. Destiny and things that happens in our life makes the story of every individual life's the unique journey as what exactly happened to one of the main character of the film played by Trisha Ray. She was determined not to defeat but to fight to the end in order to achieve her goals. And drown by the fact of "mine or nobody else's" she built her causes to gain the love of the person who was already in relationship and married. Nothing could stop her from gaining access to people's personal life, no obstacles could ruin her plan, she is manipulative, she is self determined in getting to the end until she gets to her final destination. Her destiny is her strength inside, her power, her obsession. She has no fears whatsoever to get something done even if it involves dangerous measures. She was destined to kill if something does not go her own way.

This is the great film to watch. I recommend it to everybody. This is foreign film with English subtitles and if you start watching it you would not quit as you will be eager to find out the gran finale of it. Congratulations to everyone who was involved in this film.
