Three - Love, Lies And Betrayal Movie Review
1) Is there no quality control check on the reels before the film is released? After all, one has to look into the finest details before the prints are released in the cinemas. Now this could be a fault of reels mixing up, or plain ignorance on the part of the director.
Let me explain:
Before the interval, when Anjali goes to meet Sanjay as they are about to run away from her husband to England, she is shown driving furiously in her car in the dead of night as she refuses to sign her house papers. She is shown coming out of a restaurant with Sanjay is in hot pursuit. She gets to a phone booth on the highway and screams ?He has killed my husband.? After the interval, it is business as usual between Anjali, her husband Rajeev and Sanjay, who lives with them as a paying guest. Confusing.
This same scene, where Anjali comes running out, this time from Leisure Club, is shown at the start. The next shot is of her and her husband in her home. Confusing.
I get a feeling; the director was trying to show the film in flashback and has fumbled with the point of contact. This is a grave error.
2) Why can?t the couple get rid of Sanjay who is proving to be a pest by returning the deposit (rent of one-and-a-half years)?
3) And finally, why does not Anjali tell the police officer of the pesky paying guest in her house whose intentions have reached murderous proportions? Their car is involved in causing serious damage to public property and they shell out 8000 Pounds as fine!
This is very sad, because, though the film is a little slow in the first hour, as it is establishing the characters, it is a neat thriller, where the three main actors Aashish Chowdhry (Sanjay), Nausheen Ali Sardar (Anjali) and Akshay Kapoor (Rajeev) are involved in a game of Love, Lies and Betrayal. And though you guess the main villain in the beginning, the end is chilling.
Aashish Chowdhry is proving himself to be an actor of immense potential. This guy has it in him to thrill and chill. Nausheen is impressive in her debut.
This flick had the potential of being a 3-star thriller, but for the flashback goof-up.
