Sudhir believes that he has always given his best to his wife and son. But Simran thinks that being materialistic does not provide the love which she yearns for from her husband.
As for Sudhir, he does not listen to his wife's feelings. He becomes immensely engrossed in making money for a comfortable future. That leaves Simran all alone most of the time.One rainy day, she comes across her old college friend Sunny (Emraan Hashmi). They were once in love with each other during their college years.
A lonely Simran quickly becomes hypnotised by Sunny's warm affection. Unable to resist the temptation of the flesh, she gives in to him. An affair is sparked off between the two.
The nasty twist comes when Sudhir gets to know about this relationship. To confirm his suspicions, he hires a detective who brings proof of her infidelity.
Armed with this information, Sudhir confronts Sunny which leads to some devastating results - murder!
Director Anurag Basu has learnt from his mistakes whilst making Saaya.
With this film, he has improved tremendously with his direction, taking full advantage of the locales, the suspense and the tension in the storyline.
The Bhatt brothers who are producers for this film have taken great care in handling the story.
After Raaz, this murder mystery will bring them joy at the box office once again.
Ashmit Patel looks better and more convincing than his debut film Inteha.
Emraan Hashmi, the obsessed lover in the film, proves that he is one to be noticed in Bollywood.
On the whole, Murder is an engrossing film worth watching on video due to the right doses of emotions and suspense.
It will take you by surprise! This film has already broken all box office records in India upon its release. It will not dissappoint.
