    Excellent story, excellent acting! Intense and thought provoking premise... The two main characters have a great chemestry. Shateel Sheth and Lisa Ray share this Same electricity in another movie directed by Shameem Shari, called " I just can't Think Straight". Both movies deserve a 5 rating!!.

    I saw this movie as part of a film festival in Miami and it was absolutely great. The chemistry between the characters in the film is superb.
