My Wife's Murder (2005)


Anil Kapoor
Suchitra Krishnamoorthi
Nandana Sen
Boman Irani
Rajesh Tandon

What's it About:

Police Inspector Tejpal Randhawa is assigned to investigate the case of the dead woman whose body was recovered from a small pond. Tejpal links this matter with a missing persons' report filed by Ravi Patwardhan and his father-in-law, and subsequently has the dead woman identified as Sheela, Ravi's wife. According to Ravi, Sheela had left their home to go to visit her parents. When she did not arrive at their house 24 hours later, he himself had gone to their house, and on not being able to locate her, had accompanied his father-in-law to the nearest police station and filed a missing persons' report. Tejpal would like to conclude that Sheela was waylaid on her way to her parents' by person(s) unknown, beaten, and her body was left in the pond. But this case puzzles him, as there was no apparent motive for unknown person(s) to waylay her, as no money has been taken, and her body has not shown any signs of sexual molestation. Taking these facts into consideration, Tejpal starts to suspect Ravi. But what possible motive could Ravi, a father of two children, have in killing his wife?


Anil Kapoor delivers one of his best performances as Ravi Patwardhan. He's got the perfect looks for a man with a nagging wife and a messy life.And the "man on run" scenes he does like the stammering and the reation after the accidental murdering of his wife are just wonderful.This performance should clearly stand in his Top 5 roles of all his 100+ movies.
Boman Irani shines as a cop. He is just made for acting. From comic roles to a serious cop no-one does the job better than him.
Suchitra as a nagging wife suits the role and Nandana Sen has only a little to offer.

Bottom Line:

My Wife's Murder is a definite oddball flick to come out from Bollywood. Jijy Philip's does a great job with his Directorial debut,it was always going to be a better Unusual flick since it came out from the Infamous RGV factory.Though rejected by the Indian crowds this movie is a dark & gripping tale of emotions of a man who accidentally kills his wife and is running to save his life for his children. 'My Wife's Murder' is a must watch if you are looking for something 'Unusual' from Bollywood and Stellar performance from Anil Kapoor.
