All human beings are capable of distinguishing the real from the unreal (imaginary). But there are a few who refuse to recognize this distinction. Madhoshi, releasing this September will feature the onscreen & offscreen couple John Abraham with Bipasha Basu only after Puja Bhatt's 'Jism', in a story having its roots connected with 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. The film marks the launch of dialogue writer Tanveer Khan as a Director. Tanveer Khan is very optimistic about the film's script & treatment and claims that such a subject has never been narrated on celluloid.
Whether Director Tanveer Khan's claim stands tall amongst so many films churned out in Bollywood will be decided when the film is released. Moreover it will be an acid test for John & Bipasha also if their offscreen chemistry does the trick onscreen too after the recent failures of films with lead stars having offscreen chemistry like Aishwarya Rai-Vivek Oberoi's 'Kyun Ho Gaya Naa' and Kareen Kapoor-Shahid Kapoor's'Fida' not faring well at the box office. Let's wait for the release day for the result, but in the meanwhile, let us have a sneak peak into the storyline of 'Madhoshi'.
Anu (Bipasha Basu) a fine arts student, from a happy and affluent family experiences a tragedy. On September 11, 2001 terrorists attacked New York's World Trade Center, killing Anu's elder sister and her brother-in-law, and the impact of the tragedy shook her badly and she had a mental set back. To help her overcome this problem her parents get her engaged to Arpit Oberoi (Priyanshu Chatterjee) a well-known ad filmmaker, who is later commissioned for an international Ad Film project and leaves for the U. S. Meanwhile Anu meets Aman (John Abraham) who is a member of an anti-terrorist organization. Enamored by Aman's purpose in life Anu falls in love with him. When it is time for marriage with Arpit she refuses to marry him and cuts her wrists in protest. Anu survives and it is revealed that she suffers from Schizophrenia.
When and how and whether at all Anu overcomes this dreaded disease & how she deals with the two men in her life forms the interesting conflict of 'MADHOSHI', an illusion beyond imagination.
