Product Description

Avantika is a teacher in a university in Delhi. She has come back from New York where she teaches, because her father has suffered a heart attack. During this period, she meets a temporary Professor called Ehsaan Khan. Soon they begin seeing each other and love blossoms. A few months later, Avantika receives a call from her university in New York, asking her to come back for the Fall Semister. Avantika breaks the news to Ehsaan. He in turn, tells her he doesnt mind coming to the States with her, to find a job. But first they need to get married.

Soon after the marriage, they leave to start a new life in New York. They buy a house in an Indian neighbourhood and move in. Just as they are setting up home, their conservative Muslim neighbours, Hamid and Anjum, invite them over for dinner. The next morning, Salma, one of the women Avantika met the night before at the dinner, visits her under the pretext of gifting her sweets. When Avantika invites her in, Salma tells her that she is in grave danger. Nothing is what it seems. Salma pleads with Avantika to help her.

What follows next, is a series of incidents that sucks Avantika into a vortex of danger and intrigue. As her life spirals out of control, Avantika realizes that she is a pawn in a huge game. And no one is to be trusted.

Review

Stripped to its bone, Rensil D'silva's Kurbaan is an edge-of-the-seat thriller that seldom loses its grip on your attention. Credible performances from its leads, and a nail-biting screenplay make up for the plot holes that threaten to eat into this otherwise engaging film. Kurbaan scores for its brisk pacing, and for the fact that it doesn't offer an over-simplistic view of the terrorism issue. The film allows enough room for all perspectives and avoids romanticizing the terrorist as a victim seeking revenge.

Armed with Hemant Chaturvedi's efficient camerawork and Salim-Suleiman's rousing music score that never distract from the storytelling, director Rensil D'silva makes a confident debut with a film that is both respectable and engaging. --platform47.com

Kurbaan is bloody smart. In its taut screenplay, stylish photography and good performances by the cast, it keeps you engaged, does not insult your intelligence and avoids getting preachy. And that's saying a lot for a film by a debutant director. Kurbaan deals with a very loaded subject -- terror, Islam, America and the rest of the world. Something that a bunch of filmmakers have attempted in recent times, and there's more to come. But this one is executed like a classy Hollywood thriller, with some great moments of suspense, high drama, blood, gore and skin. --platform47.com

Kurbaan tries to penetrate into the psyche of not just the terrorist, but also someone who has been a helpless spectator all this while. This film is sure to spark off discussions and debates, although it must also be noted that it doesn't take sides or gets preachy. Rensil D'Silva has chosen a burning issue for his directorial debut, which is a complete departure from Karan Johar's earlier films. Kurbaan is one of the most powerful films to come out of the Hindi film industry in 2009. The film has a captivating plot, gripping screenplay, super performances and a climax that shakes you up completely. Watching this movie should be on top of your agenda this week. --platform47.com

IT is one of the best Bollywood movies ever created.

I would have liked to have known that there were subtitles, even though I was pretty sure that there would be.

Stops, freezes, have to go the title menu often to restart viewing.

This movie had me spellbound from the beginning. I must say that Indian cinema has really come a long way. The storyline and plot in this movie was great and the actors themselves were too good.

Kareena Kapoor is amazing in this movie as Avantika and Saif Ali Khan was equally amazing as Eshaan. The supporting cast Vivek Oberoi, Om Puri and Kirron Kher should also be commended as they gave stunning performances.

Overall it's a love story but as the tagline goes, 'some love stories have blood on them'. The question is whether Avantika and Eshaan's love can triumph over Eshaan's dark past or would their love be the ultimate sacrifice?

I must admit, I am not a huge Kareena Kapoor fan, but she was very good in this film opposite an extremely powerful performance by Saif Ali Khan. Khan's performance was riveting as the villain with a very well-hidden heart. GREAT MOVIE!!!!

I'm a huge movie lover. I came upon this film on Netflix. First of all, I love the main actors. I watch a lot of foreign films including Bollywood films. I can't believe it didn't do good overseas.I thought I was an interesting plot and well acted. Anyways, I really enjoyed this film.

well-made movie. end drags on a bit. overall plot, acting and direction were good. some parts evoke a reaction of "how stupid of her to do that", but those stupid actions were critical to the plot.... story writer should have identified alternative means of exposing the sinister side of the plot.

Kareena Kapoor and husband Saif Ali Khan are great in this movie. This movie explores hidden terrorism plots that can exist in ones own culture, family and religion. It is a very realistic movie and well worth the watch and purchase.
