Madhoshi: The thin line between reality and illusion

Debutant director Tanveer Khan's Madhoshi , starring Bipasha Basu and John Abraham , is an intricate but shoddily written love story of a girl for whom the line between reality and illusion is blur.

The punchline of the movie says that an illusion goes beyond imagination. And that goes true for the main character Anu (Bipasha), for whom the line between illusion and reality is quite blur. Having gradually recovered from the mental shock of her sister's death in 9/11 attacks, Anu turns into a woman given to mental delusions.



She is engaged to one man but loves another man Aman (John) who works for an anti-terrorist organization. But the real question is - Is her ideal man Aman just a figment of her imagination or does he exist in reality.

Madhoshi is a promising attempt by first time director Tanveer Khan , but it still fails to impress because of some unimaginative writing.

The movie start off quite well with the 9/11 attacks and then slowly establishes the gravity of Anu's trauma, followed by a mandatory sequence of songs in the first half. The story picks up after the introduction of John Abraham's character, and with him comes the element of suspense in the story.

But the treatment of the story in the latter part of the second half is what tantalizes the most. The climax, when the suspense is cleared, is childish in conception and a complete letdown.

Yet, Madhoshi leaves an impression because of commendable acting by Bipasha Basu, who does everything from her erotic poses and hot scenes with John to her delirious act as a possible schizophrenic with utmost conviction.
