Storyline

After the passing of her mother, and the entry of a step-mother, Amrita Jayshankar retreats into herself. Her father is summoned to her school and is told that his daughter may require counseling, but he refuses to believe and instead makes a donation to the school. Then Amrita meets with three males and a female, namely Zuben, Dushant Sahu, Karan Chaudhary; and Tanya Sharma respectively. Together they live it up with drugs and alcohol until things get out of control when they accidentally kill a couple. A corrupt police constable demands Rs.25 Lakhs to eliminate their involvement. Unable to come up with so much cash, the five decide to fake a kidnapping, demand the cash from Amrita's father, and clear their respective names. Amrita accordingly goes 'missing', and her father involves the police, who assign this case to once-suspended police inspector, Arvind Mathur. With the media getting involved, Arvind begins his investigation, but will soon find it hampered - complicating not only... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Very well made . Hilarious Awesome and breathtaking.
12 June 2011 | by hiakhil19See all my reviews

Must watch for those who like to watch something different and unique every time they step into a theater. To be honest i didn't expect a lot from Shaitaan. But after coming out of theater i was laughing and was amazed with the performances of each and every character. However there still few things in the movie i am disappointed with What worked for me is The ultra cool camera-work ,direction . The performances of Rajiv Kahndelwaal and Kalki were awesome. The camera-work was brilliant. I was amazed at the beauty of "Khoya Khoya Chand "scene. That's how Guy Ritchie would present a shootout scene . I might just go for the movie again for that scene.

Although the direction was brilliant i think the story lacks the concreteness and was weak at certain places. Apart from that the movie Rocks.

Go watch it guys u wont regret it.
