Manorama 6 feet under.

Another movie I liked ! There seems to be a flood of them in the past few years, which is good news.

Could have been cut short just a wee bit, but I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery. Of course I could be a little prejudiced, because as I wrote earlier, I love the genre.

It reminded me somehow of an Agatha Christie. Yes , not everything in a murder mystery is 100% plausible, but the question is , can it take you for a ride and would you enjoy the twists and turns? In this case , yes I did. A few twists every now and again, keeps you guessing, and if its a little slow at places, well I'll forgive that.

Who was the girl? Was it a murder? What was the motive? But if.. , then why..? I like :D

I liked it too! and yes it was a bit slow, almost sleepy in the middle. But that realistic fear of anything is possible, that middle class background, really good! I quite admired Gul Panag and have grown to like Abhay Deol.

I've grown to like Abhay too, he seems to have made an interesting choice of movies.

I think they stretched it a bit. Good movie and they have even acknowledged the "Chinatown" inspiration through references.
I think Abhay Deol is the dude to look out for. He has been experimenting with roles ever since he stepped into the industry. Someday, something may click.
