I decided to type a quick post about this movie because 1) "Kaho Na Kaho" and "Bheegey Hont" refuse to get out of my head, and 2) I'm in the process of putting together my thoughts about the Kannada remake, Ganda Hendathi.

I can't remember if I watched this movie before or after Khwahish. I think it was after. Anyway, I thought it was okay. I liked the first half better than the second. The two things that stuck out the most for me were Mallika's resemblance to Halle Berry and her(Mallika's) shiny, bouncy tresses. She seriously has great hair. I want the name and phone number of her hairstylist.

I wasn't into Emraan Hashmi at this point(it took several viewings of Zeher for that), so I didn't pay much attention to him, but I think I may have thought he was cute.

I keep forgetting that Ashmit Patel was in this movie. It's like, "Oh yeah, Ashmit Patel. He played the husband." I remember him more from Nazar than I do this film.

I thought the seduction scene was hot, but when Emraan and Mallika started kissing, she opened her mouth so wide, I was afraid she was going to swallow him whole.

I became aware of and interested in Mallika after reading her boastful remarks on several internet sites when Murder became a hit. I liked her outspokenness and dare-bare act. The fact that she's a thirtysomething divorcée with a reputation for being a bitch only makes her more endearing to me. No matter how many braggadocious claims she makes, or tantrums she throws, or movies of hers that flop, I think I will always have a soft spot for Ms. Sherawat(née Lamba).

I like Mallika and one of the few. Love her personality.

I thought Murder was much better than the Hollywood movie, Unfaithful, which I hated.

Ashmit Patel looks so cute in the film, lol.

I thought the first half of Unfaithful was pretty good, but that it went downhill after Oliver Martinez was killed.

I think Ashmit is cute, but for some reason, I just can't remember that he's in this movie :) Maybe it's because Mallika has such a powerful presence, she overshadows everyone else.
