Humraaz is an immensely entertaining and classy film that is probably on par. Though the film is a copy of A PERFECT MURDER (1998), but now it has become the trademark of Abbass-Mustan.
The best thing about the film is that it keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end! When you think the movie is over an unexpected twist happens to keep the pulse-pounding thrills sky-high. Plus, the movie has that traditional, nostalgic Bollywood style romance that everyone loves.
Music by Himesh Reshammiya deserves awards, with the best songs being 'Bardaasht', 'Dil Ne Kar Liya', and 'Sanam Mere Humraaz'.
Performances from the cast couldn't be better! This is Amisha Patel's best role to date (including 'Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai'), and Bobby Deol and Akshaye Khanna act with zeal and enthusiasm. HUMRAAZ came after DCH which took Akshaye's career to a height. In this film he showed his versatility. He is the real scene stealer, every change in expression, every dial must be seen to be believed, and He is the real reason to watch the film. He is simply outstanding. This film showed Bobby in a nice way and he seemed comfortable.
The only let down of the movie is the clichéd ending, but with a film that has appealed to you for a solid three hours, you'll fail to notice.
With all that said, Humraaz is a film for everyone, and the most appealing of 2002. Go rent it, or rather, buy it!
