My Wife’s Murder August 15, 2006

Posted by Shujath in Hindi, Movies, Reviews.

This is one of the very few quality products from RGV’s Factory (apart from his directorial ventures). Though it did not work at the box office (as expected), there are lot of good things to say about it.

Contrary to what the title or posters might suggest, this is not really a murder mystery…but is as gripping as one. The biggest strength of this enterprise is that the premise is very believable. What if someone accidentally causes the death of his wife during a regular squabble? Would you call the police and try to explain the situation or would you take a chance and try getting away from it? In this case Anil Kapoor (who comes up with a brillant portrayal of a middle-class video editor) takes the tough way out. To what extent he succeeds or fails makes up the rest of the movie.

Coming to the performances….apart from Anil Kapoor, Boman Irani as the inspector was too good….I thought it was his best till date. Screenplay and Direction by Jijy Phillip is impressive…who unfortunately followed it up with an unimpressive episode in Darna Zaroori Hai.

This is a great watch if you like thrillers and realistic cinema.
