Snapshot of the Story
Murder is a story about being in love, marriage, extra marital affair, betrayal and murder all in one. Simran (Mallika Sherawat) and Sudhir (Ashmit Patel) are a married couple and not living a happy married life. One fine day Sunny, a college friend of Simran come into her life and they start dating. Both of them used to like each other from their college days and that turns in to betrayal with extramarital affair. Story becomes interesting when Sudhir come to know about their relationship.
Director Anurag Basu is known for his action thriller style of movies and he does it again with “Murder”, but this time he included the extramarital component to his success formula. Mallika Sherawat added extra zing with her bold and seductive scene that raised a lot of eyebrows.
Simran (Mallika Sherawat) is a working women in Bombay and successful but not satisfied with her married life which has become the common for many urban couples. Sudhir (Ashmit Patel) is a business man and often stays away from home which contributed to the loneliness of the couple. Mallika Sherawat looks like a perfect cast for the role and looked sensational that represented unsatisfied middle aged lady, but Ashmit Patel was not convincing in his role and someone of middle aged actor would be the best in this role.
Story takes the romantic turn or I refer to as a seductive turn when Simran meets her college boyfriend Sunny (Emraan Hashmi). Their heart still beating for each other and they start dating that leads to a physical relationship. Emraan Hashmi got the tag of “Serial Kisser” from this movie as they share quite a few onscreen kisses. Mallika Sherawat looked at ease whether in bikini or in a sexual encounter with no clothes on.
The thrill begins when Sudhir some to know the extra marital affair and plan the murder of Sunny on the other side Simran decides to confess that she has relationship with Sunny, but Sudhir forgives her. The climax of the movie is the weakest part of the movie as you will come to know that no murder took place in the first place.
Murder is an experiential movie made by Anurag Basu which turns out to be bold and quite successful. Equal credit goes to Mallika Sherawat that decides to do such a bold role and was done with complete maturity and grace. Ashmit in the the role of Sudhir was a wrong choice for this cast. Emraan Hashmi was best fitted to Sunny’s role. Good music is like a tradition of Bhatt camp and “Murder” was no exception that has chart buster music and topped the chart for months.
“Murder” scores 7 out of 10 for its bold yet gracefully handled topic of extra marital relationship especially for Indian cinema. Mallika Sherawat got a lot of appreciation for her role that other actress could have refused to accept and perhaps started to trend of bold and beautifully role with some grace. We would like to give an extra point just because of Mallika Sherawat that brings the total score to 8 out of 10.
