ZeherZeher: Thrills and kills

Twenty-four year old Mohit Suri, who has been groomed in the Bhatt camp of Bollywood, makes his directorial debut with Zeher, which is not a bad start, but just a clichéd one.

The characters in the story written by Suri are so very similar to the ones we have seen in the past movies from the Bhatts. Only those characters are now put in a slightly different story.




Set in the azure and sultry backdrop of Goa, Zeher tells the tale of a young cop, Siddharth ( Emraan Hashmi ), who is on the verge of a divorce with his wife, Sonia ( Shamita Shetty ).

His marriage almost over, Siddharth finds himself drawn towards a local married woman named Anna ( Udita Goswami ), who is stuck in a bad marriage with a man who beats and abuses her. She is also suffering from cancer.

Siddharth tries to help her but she is killed. And soon he becomes one of the usual suspects of the murder.

Considering that it is Suri's first movie, it is a commendable effort, for he brings about the right execution of his story by unspooling it at a controlled pace and supporting it with visually appealing cinematography. Moreover, Suri has not made it a sex flick by keeping the portions of intimate scenes in limited (albeit no less titillating) dose.

The acting of an adulterer must now be coming very naturally to Emraan Hashmi, who has performed relatively well in this film, but it is Shamita Shetty who shows signs of a promising actress.

All in all, Zeher is not bad for watching once if you have some time to kill.
