            Coming from the Bhatt oven, the film depicts the changing face of Hindi cinema. The film has a close resemblance to Adrian Lyne's `Unfaithful' just as last week's `Hawas', though the producers deny this.  But this film is much better than `Hawas' primarily because of a better star cast. And though there are some sleazy scenes, these are handled very maturely and the film attempts to go much deeper. Mallika manages to get deep into the character of an adulterous wife and brings it to life. But her male co-stars let her down. `Bheege honth tere' is catchy.

            Sudhir is a busy businessman in Bangkok and lives with wife Simran and their son Kabir.  Expectedly Simran feels ignored and their relationship begins to strain. Simran meets an old friend, Sunny, on a rainy day, and is reminded of the time when she and Sunny had been in love before they decided to get married. But destiny had something else in store for them and Simran was forced to marry her brother-in-law Sudhir because of her dying sister's child. The past ignites the present and sparks fly once again and they cross the impermissible limits. Sudhir begins to suspect that his wife is hiding something and even hires a detective to keep track of her activities. He is shaken when the detective tells him the truth. He decides to confront Sunny, with disastrous results. Sunny is found murdered, and the needle of suspicion falls on both Simran and Sudhir, both admitting to the crime. But the investigating officer is not convinced.
