Neha DhupiaSiskiyaan - Review

Neha Dhupia starrer Siskiyaan is like a half-baked experiment. It is a dark and sombre movie set in a single night around three characters.

The movie also stars Sonu Sood and Sachin Khedekar , besides Neha who plays a rape victim. The film is directed by Ashwini Chaudhary and produced by Guddu Dhanoa.




Ayesha (Neha Dhupia) is a woman haunted by the memories of her past. In the times of riots she was blindfolded and raped by a doctor in a relief camp for three days.

Ayesha carries the psychological and emotional scars of that incident even after her marriage to her husband Javed Sheikh (Sachin Khedekar). Javed is a magazine editor. He is also the chairman of the commission investigating the riots.

One fateful night, Javed comes home with a doctor named Vishwas (Sonu Sood). As Ayesha observes the way the doctor talks, smokes and behaves, she starts believing that he is the man who raped her. She knows the rapist's body odour. And she smells that in Dr. Vishwas.

Determined for retribution, Ayesha confronts the doc with a gun, subjugates him and demands a confession. But the doc denies that he ever raped her.

Is Ayesha right in her judgment? Will her husband support her in her act of revenge?

Siskiyaan director Ashwini Chaudhary has chosen an offbeat subject. His cinematic execution is deft at times, but a few good assorted sequences don't make a gripping movie.

The story is not an uninteresting one. Only it begins to drag in the second half when the movie becomes too much dialogue oriented. Also the movie's setting, a secluded house, looks more theatrical and less real.

One strong point of the movie is Neha Dhupia, who shows remarkable growth as an actress. The way she stares in the mirrors, the desensitized, blown-out expressions on her face and her vitriolic outburst towards the end - all lend credibility to her character Ayesha, a rape victim seeking revenge and justice.

Sonu Sood as the hapless doctor is convincing only in certain portions. Sachin Khedekar, as usual, proves to be a dependable actor. He doesn't dominate the proceedings, but still makes an impact.

The biggest flaw of the movie is that not many viewers would be able to relate to the story and some may even find it sad and depressing.
